About
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

Highlights
Visit three of Venice’s islands in half a day
See a glass factory, churches, lace shops, and more without feeling rushed
Learn history from a guide you wouldn’t hear traveling on your own
Choose a morning or afternoon trip to suit your schedule
What to expect
Board your motorboat to set off across the Venetian Lagoon for Murano. Disembark and stroll around the island with your guide. Stop at a glass factory, where you watch a glassblower create sculptures in a centuries-old tradition. Your guide tells you about the island’s history as the former center of European glassmaking. Visit a few sights around the island, including a church with notable mosaics. Hop back in the boat and move onto lesser-known Torcello, with its ornate palaces and churches. See the excavated ruins of the Church of Santa Fosca baptistery. Your third stop is Burano, known for traditional lace production. Walk past the island’s colorful fishermen’s houses, and visit lace shops and the lace museum. Finish the tour with a boat ride back to Venice.

Great Trip for little money!
Oct 2020
It was a awesome trip! We have been on Tour around 4 -5 hours and it was really fantastic! We did see a lot of great areas of venice, had enough time for taking some pictures, having a snack, check a church etc. and did a small history guide during the boortrip. It was really worth the time for that little amount of money!!

Get what you pay for
It was an okay trip, we found that we couldn’t understand or hear the tour guide very well on the boat, too loud and too many languages going on. The glass blowing demo was interesting and the tour guide did well for what you pay for. In my opinion you’re better off travelling to Muano yourself.

Dear elliehill123, Thank you for choosing our Murano, Burano and Torcello Panoramic tour during your stay in Venice! We are sorry to read that you weren't able to hear properly the information and we will for sure check upon the audio system of the boat. The aim of our tour is to give an overview of the life, the history and the culture of the islands and of the venetian lagoon and we believe that providing multilingual explanation is an adedd value as everyone can understand everything properly and feel comfortable hearing their native tongues. We hope to see you again in your next visit to Venice! Have a nice day,

Waste of time. Construct your own tour using the ferry boats. The landing at murano was to their glass blowing factory and showroom. Nothing else. Nothing much at torcello bur burano quite pleasant.

Dear Simon C, we are sorry to read that you were not happy with our island tour. First of all we would like to clarify that we do not own any glass blowing factory in Murano: the visit and the demonstration of how the glass artefacts are created are part of the tour, but completely optional if you prefer to make your own itinerary. We include Torcello in our tour because even if it may seem the least "scenic" of the three islands, but it certainly stands out for its beauty and importance, having given rise to the Venetian "civilization", with monuments dating back to the 7th century! So we wouldn't define Torcello as "nothing much". Our half-day boat tour aims to give a panoramic view of the islands, their culture and traditions, and of the northern part of the Lagoon of Venice (at the competetive price of less than 20 euro!) We are sorry once again that our tour didn't meet your expectations but please note that we also offer private guided tour for those who prefer a more exclusive and personalized experience. Thank you for choosing Bucintoro Viaggi, Best regards,

Waste of time
I regret not taking vaporetto and going to Burano and Murano by myself. The tour takes you to Murano to the glass factory where you watch the guy making a glass and horse figurine. Then you have free time to walk around the shop, basically to make you to buy stuff. The shop is nice but this is the only thing that you see in Murano. They you rush to Torcello and you have time to go to the church and back. There is nothing else there. And at the end you go to the beautiful and colourful Burano to have only 40 min to walk around which is really nothing. Quick walk, some photos and you need to come back to the boat. I was very disappointed.

Dear EwaDublin, we are sorry to read you were not completely satisfied with our tour. Murano, Burano and Torcello are among the most beautiful islands of the Venetian Lagoon and we understand the desire to spend more time on each island. Nevertheless, our half-day boat tour aims to give only a panoramic view of the life, culture and traditions of its islands. The time spent on each of them is about 1 hour: this information is written clearly on our website and in every website where you can buy our tour. Please note that we also organize private guided tours for those who prefer a more exclusive and personalized experience. Thank you for choosing Bucintoro Viaggi, Best regards,

Beautiful mirning strolling around 3 unique islands
Each island has its own quirks. Murano glass factory was great, we saw a demonstration of glass products being made and the gift shop was well priced. Torcello has lots of cheap bars so we sat for a drink by the canal and there was a wedding in the church which was cute. Burano has so many colourful houses and lots of place to eat and drink. The boat ride was smooth and short and it was a lovely relaxing trip with a guided commentary on the boat.

good value for money
Aug 2020
nice that it was time limited and we didn't use too much time or money... much less crowded than public transportation. it would have been nice to have a bit more time to have lunch in Burano which was a charming place.
Do not count on getting too much information from the guide - speakers on the ferry are terrible.

Excellent Value Truely but disappointing information
First I’d like to say I very much enjoyed this tour and I believe at ~€18 it is excellent value and a must to visit the beautiful islands of the Venetian lagoon.

The guide was friendly but had a challenging job, having to give the information in 4 languages is an understandable challenge but it meant that the information about each island was incredibly limited (if it was heard at all, the boat was loud)

Overall good experience and very efficient way to check off 3 beautiful islands but if you like local history and to find out more about the islands you are visiting maybe look elsewhere or preread before your trip
