Full description

Visit the most beautiful islands in the Venetian Lagoon on this 4.5 or 6-hour afternoon trip. Stop at the island of Murano, home to world-renowned glassblowers, Burano, known for its lace production and the ancient settlement of Torcello.

Stop at Murano and see a demonstration by a glass-blowing master. The tradition of glassblowing has been passed down generations of Murano residents. Continue to Torcello and see the central square, the Church of Santa Fosca, Ponte del Diavolo and other interesting sites. The last visit will be to Burano. The island is world-known for its hand-made lace but also for its small, brightly painted houses that are popular with artists.  Your tour ends back in Saint Mark’s Square. If you want, you can stay on board and be taken directly to the train station for an additional cost - just ask your tour guide.

It was a unique experience! The guide on board the boat told us several interesting things about Venice and the islands, he was very kind and helpful. The islands are wonderful, we witnessed a beautiful demonstration of glass and lace, truly spectacular! We recommend this beautiful boat trip to everyone, excellent value for money!

I highly recommend, really magnificent, for 25€ it's a gift I'm surprised that the price is so cheap, the last island (Tarcello) I find it useless to stay 1 hour waiting for time to pass, and Burano only 1 hour much too short we had to run to visit + take pictures despite that I liked it very much I recommend, a piece of advice do not go to the church for Burano otherwise you will only have 30 minutes to visit (I did not take this option personally)

Very nice getaway on the islands. We took the 6-hour option and it was great (note that the trip lasts 7 hours in all, leaving at 12:00 p.m. and returning at 7:00 p.m. in San Marco). The guide was also very good with comments in Italian, English, Spanish and French! Note that the departure and arrival points are different, but for 5 euros more you can take advantage of the boat to return to the starting point.
