Full description
Enjoy a half-day excursion from Venice to the islands of Murano and Burano in the Venetian lagoon. Your tour starts out from St. Mark's Square, where you’ll board a boat that will take you to the northern part of the lagoon.

During the crossing, some commentary about the area will be provided in English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian.

Murano Island is the first stop, a place that’s world-famous for its glass production. You’ll have a chance to visit a glass factory and observe a local artist giving shape to a work of art in glass. Afterwards, you’ll have some free time to explore the island and take in the picturesque views.

Next stop is Burano, one of the most beautiful and peaceful islands in the lagoon. Burano is well known for its colorful houses and long tradition of lace production. You’ll have enough free time here for a walk around the island to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, before the boat returns to Venice.
