    Embark on a half-day boat trip around the famous islands of Murano and Burano and discover a more local and authentic side to Venice. Enjoy free time to explore the scenic islands renowned for their glass blowing and lace-making traditions. Climb aboard your boat and sail towards Murano, known as the “Island of Glass". Get the chance to visit a glass factory and observe a local artist giving shape to a work of art in glass. Stroll the quiet streets of Murano at your own leisure and marvel at the beautiful 16th-century buildings that still stand tall to this day. Next, travel to Burano to see one of Venice’s most picturesque islands. Walk by the charming fishermen's houses painted with bright colors whose water reflection gives them a unique, dream-like shimmer. Browse through Burano’s rich collection of lace garments, which are still handmade by local women. After visiting both islands, cruise back to Venice and take in the breathtaking seascape surroundings.

    It was a little bit tricky to find the meeting point as the coordinations were wrong, but we tracked danieli’s hotel and it was just near it. Everything went smooth, leaves at time and give you just the right amount of time in each island. Really worth the money. Would totally recommend!

    Tour highly recommended, even for those who leave alone. The organizers are very helpful and attentive to the participants. I particularly liked Burano, also because we managed to walk around the island in peace. On the other hand, we only got to see the glassworks in Murano (I hoped to be able to explore it a little more), but all in all it is there. The guide who translated everything into 5 languages is fantastic!
