Overview
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.
What to Expect
At Alilaguna pier in front of the Royal Gardens (Giardinetti Reali), 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. Visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and 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.

Gorgeous locations, ok tour

The three locations visited during this tour are certainly worth your time and the tour in itself is inexpensive. In our case, we left around 10:30 and returned around 3:00, so if you can pick an earlier spot it would be ideal. All three locations...More

Why bother...if you only have a few days in Venice

There is far too many amazing and magical things to see in Venice that we felt a trip to Murano and Burano a completely unnecessary trip to make. It’s by no means more beautiful and we could have taken the time to visit more of...More

Superb Day Trip

What a great way to explore these gems in the Lagoon. Great value for money.Burano worth a full day on it's own. Torcello so peaceful and a great escape from crowded Venice.

We enjoyed all three placed 45min at each place was plenty of time. Burano was the most beautiful so beautiful that we stayed and took the regular taxi bus back because we wanted to spend more time there. But over all it was a great...More
