Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Isola di Murano, Murano, Veneto

The enchanting islands of Murano and Burano are the perfect change of pace from Venices crowded streets and waterways. And the perfect way to reach them is by private water taxi. Faster and sturdier than a gondola, nimbler and less crowded than a waterbus, water taxis are the premier way to travel in Venice. Few visitors get to experience them, but yours is included, along with an expert local guide wholl explain Venices history as a titan of trade along the way.
Your first port of call is a specially chosen glassblowing workshop on Murano. In the Middle Ages, only Muranos artisans possessed the secrets of this craft, and sharing them was punishable by execution. Youll get to witness modern glassblowers wield those once secret techniques, shaping delicate and dazzling works of art from molten glass. Then admire the workshops finest work in its gallery, and perhaps take home a piece of your own with a tour discount. Or explore more of Murano, including its peaceful canals and stunning Byzantine church.
