1. Venice: Murano, Burano, and Torcello Private Boat Tour
Enjoy a private half-day excursion by Venetian motorboat to the Venice Lagoon islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the comfortable motorboat, featuring shelter from the sun, a soft sofa, and a 360-degree view. Admire the flora and fauna of the lagoon as you cruise to Murano, where you can admire the romance and beauty of the 9th-century cathedral of St. Donato. Then, take a short stroll to a glass factory to watch expert glass blowers at work. Next, sail over to the colorful island of Burano, a small gem of the Venice Lagoon with its silent streets and brightly painted houses. Try an authentic bussola biscuit while you are there. Continue to Torcello to explore one of the first populated islands of the Venice Lagoon. Today, due to its distance from Venice, the island is largely used to cultivate artichokes. Marvel at the islands from the comfort of your boat, or on land, before the transfer back to San Marco.
