Full description
Start your day with either the Doge Palace or the Boat Tour. Doge's Palace is an unmissable in your itinerary: it served as the seat of Venetian political power for centuries. Your admission ticket also includes entry to the Correr Museum on St. Mark's Square. The building was originally designed as a residence for Napoleon, and later became the Venetian residence of the King of Italy.

With this combo you also have access to a 4-hour boat tour of the Venetian Lagoon. Stop at the island of Murano, home to world-renowned glassblowers, Burano, known for its lace production. In the timeslots of 2pm and 2.30 pm the boat tour will stop to Torcello as well (if option selected).

Spend around 45 minutes on Murano and see a demonstration by a glass-blowing master. 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. You will have 45 minutes here before returning to the mainland.

Your tour ends back in Saint Mark’s Square.
