Know More about this tour
Sometimes the best experience is shared with other people. On this tour, we will have a small group of 8 people embarking on a half-day experience to Murano and Burano islands.
You dont have to worry about finding us, we will organize a pick up from Venice City Center and take you on a luxurious motor-launch to explore the islands. When you arrive on the boat, your guide will show you the magical Venetian lagoon composed of many small islands.
Your first stop will be in the beautiful and colourful Burano. It is famous for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is famed for its age-old lace making, but it is also a brightly coloured fishermans island, full of blue, red, pink, yellow and green houses. Local legend has it that local fishermen would paint the houses with such vivid colors in order to recognize their houses from a distance at sea. Nowadays, there are around 3,000 residents still living there and many of them continue the lace-making tradition. You will be also given some free time to explore on your own. After a pleasant stroll around the Island of Burano, we'll make our way to Murano - the most famous of the Venetian Islands, renowned for the production of glass!
The island is actually a small archipelago of various islands with around 4,500 people living there. Its history in glass-producing dates back to 1291 when the local Venetian council decided that the furnaces were causing too many fires in wooden Venice. This meant the glassmakers were forced to close up their businesses and move away to a new location - Murano island itself! As part of our tour, you'll visit a selected glass-factory to see a demonstration of glass-blowing as well as visit the factory's showroom to admire the high quality of glass produced on the Island. Your tour will conclude with a return transfer to Venice's City Center.
