Description

Pamper yourself! Enjoy our signature Small-Group Murano and Burano tour, a unique experience which will enable you to admire Venice and the lagoon islands cruising on board a luxurious private boat.

Your unforgettable Murano and Burano tour starts meeting your dedicated tour leader and setting sail from the San Marco Square dock.

Soaring over the gentle waters of the Grand Canal you will admire the splendour of the Palazzos and bridges from a very different and unusual perspective. And then, ships ahoy, off you go on your Murano and Burano tour, through the lagoon, to Murano!

Enchanting and alluring Murano is the kingdom of world-acclaimed gorgeous handcrafted glass.

Founded between the 5th and the 7th century this charming island experienced its major development after 1291, when all Venetian glass furnaces were moved here to avoid fires in the main city.

From then on the island became Europe’s first supplier for high quality glass, and still today artistic and industrial fornaci (i.e. furnaces) continue to make superb glass products ranging from beads and mosaic tiles to elaborate chandeliers and works of art.

 

Roam the picturesque streets, admire splendid ancient churches and crown your day with a visit to a traditional glass factory, and enjoy an unforgettable firsthand experience: a live glass blowing demonstration!

Set off again aboard your comfortable luxury boat for a half hour sail. Enjoy water, soft drinks and refreshments on board if you wish  and disembark on delightful Burano island. Renowned worldwide for its brightly-painted houses and exquisite handcrafted lace Burano is a quaint, evocative fishermen village, and a delightful treasure-chest of fascinating centuries-old traditions. As the legend goes ago the handmade lace craft started when the village girls tried to imitate a mermaid’s wedding veil, made of elaborately patterned sea spray!

Follow your guide along the canals and through the pretty streets lined by rainbow-hued homes, see how lace in every shape and size floats from the tiny shops, catch unexpected views of eternity and breathe in its authentic atmosphere.

End your Murano and Burano tour journeying back to the city and crown your day with a spectacular final stop at San Giorgio Island (when not available to Giudecca) for a marvelous and uncrowded picture-perfect panoramic view of the floating city skyline. Celebrate your lagoon experience tour toasting to Venice with a glass of refined Prosecco before traveling back to San Marco Square.


Providing spectacular views of Venice and Venetian islands, and an enjoyable cruise, our vip small group Murano and Burano tour enables you to experience the lagoon leisurely, stylishly and comfortably.
