On landing, go to one of the famous glass factories to see how the colorful glass ware is blown. Alternatively, stroll the quiet streets of the island at leisure.

Continue to Burano to discover one of Venice Lagoon’s most picturesque islands. Your guide will point out the major sights, and explain the history of the island, before giving you about some free time to wander around the chocolate box houses.
