Only few minutes to Murano island, which is a beautiful place. Most of thr time for demonstration of Murano glass and the shop for buying Murano products. Murano stop is a trap for making money the shop owner and the boat company... Secondly, Burano is absolutely magnificent! Has to be more time to explore and rest (time for coffee for example).

It was a pretty nice and interesting trip through the lagoon of Venice. But if you want to discover the islands by yourself without time pressure and a guide, we recommend a 24h ferry ticket (20€). It’s valid for all the ferry lines, including the islands around Venice and the Canal Grande.

Very nice! Carlotta was very pleasant and was able to make the visit in four languages, especially in French. This excusion would still deserve at least 1 hour of visit on each site (6 hours of walk) because we had to walk quickly to have the impression of making a tour in each village
