What people are saying about Piazza San Marco

Murano and Burano were amazing and enoyed them thoroughly

The meeting point was very vague, we got to the place shown on the map and then were clueless where to wait. luckily we met others on the tour and huddled together. The Glass blowing demonstration was amazing, we really enjoyed it, plenty of time to view the showroom and the souvenir shop and a quick coffee. Burano was also great, the coloured houses and the shops were great for pictures but there was so many shops and so little time that we felt rushed and clock watching a lot to make sure we were back at the boat on time. Torcello for us was a waste of time, it was about 15 minute walk down a canal to get to the church ruins and then when we arrived, there was no one around, was like a ghost town, none of the exhibitions were accessible, the toilets were padlocked shut and we ended up buying a drink at a restaurant on the way back just to use their bathroom facilities. We would have benefitted with more in Burano instead.

Perfectly organised trip, a bit for everyone!

The trip price includes the boat ride from Pula to Venice and back with a few guide notes. What was brilliant though was that - of course for extra charge, although reasonable - you can take up additional “modules” that perfectly follow each other to fill the whole time in Venice (if you wish to), or just bits of it. The Atlas guides organise the following, of which you can pick whatever you feel like (prices for adults, children cheaper): 1) boat trip from the port of Venice (customs point) to nearby Piazza San Marco (€13); 2) local pasta lunch (€20); 3) the Venetian Murano glass workshop; 4) gondola ride through Gran Canal and more (€28); water taxi back to port, through Gran Canal, under Rialto bridge, and more (€28). Given that there is only limited time in Venice, it worth the extra money for these organised tours; especially when you have people with limited walking abilities with you.

Best way to visit Venice in one day with added fun crossing Adriatic!

We travelled through Italy and found that the best to get in and out of Venice without an overnight stay was to carry on our journey into Croatia then take a day-trip from Pula. It was so much easier than the park and ride or the train journey from Bologna, and we got to chill out on the boat on the way there and back. We walk from the arrival pier into the centre of Venice via little frequent streets and bridges in less than 30 minutes and were able to take lots of pictures without lots of other people crowding the frames. Had a lovely lunch, explored the Piazza San Marco and the touristy sights before taking a water-taxi ride along the Grand Canal. Then we got back on the boat to Pula, and arrived there just in time for some pre-dinner drinks by the Roman Amphitheater. Would highly recommend the company, very friendly and professional. Every went smoothly. A real pleasure!

Great tour, but not enough time on the islands.

This is a great tour, really enjoyed our boat trip to the beautiful islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. The only thing I can say that let it down, was that you don't get enough time on the islands to have a look properly. Personally i would have liked to have spent more time on thefirst two islands and missed out the last one. Also the tour guide was a little ignorant. She marched off on the islands, meaning that people that can't walk very fast missed out on what she was saying. She didn't tell us anything when we set off, juat said follow me, and we were wondering all the way down to the boat, if we'd actually got the right group. Luckily we had. All in all.... a really great experience! Would recommend.

Burano beautiful, Murano marvellous if you want to see the glass

The time flies. My son wanted to see the glass and having, what seemed, a quick look we only had 20 mins to checkout the rest. Most shops selling glass. Surprised the items we bought didn't have makers mark, although in glass blowers shop? Are they selling 'fake' stuff they complain about? I paid E15, not mark worthy, supposedly reduced from E30? Burano, really lovely to view, colour, bridges over water, lovely little eateries. Could have spent the day there. Good excuse to return to Venice again, just LoveIt - well Italy in general really.
