Murano, Burano and Torcello are all renowned for their history and their charm. On board a boat cruise, discover the three islands of the Venice Lagoon in one afternoon!

Leave Venice by boat to discover the lagoon, passing the island of San Giorgio Maggiore to admire the 16th-century Benedictine church on the way to your first stop: Murano.

Accompanied by your tour guide, you will visit a family-owned glass-blowing workshop where you will learn all about the ancient craft.

You will then climb back on board the boat to travel to Burano, a fishing island dotted with colourful houses. You'll be able to catch sight of the fishermen as well as discover the history behind this island which specializes in the production of fine lace.

The last stop of your boat trip will be at Torcello island to discover the Santa Maria Assunta cathedral’s magnificent mosaics and the Santa Fosca church, before returning to Venice.

  • Les commentaires de la guide sur le bateau ne sont pas assez audibles et sont totalement inexistants sur les îles hors mis les commentaires très intéressant à la soufflerie de verre sur Murano et il faisait nuit sur l’île de Torcello, dommage.

  • Très bonne excursion! On aurait du rester plus longtemps sur l’ile de Burano! Murano vite démonstration de la fabrication des pièces en verre! Attention les prix sont beaucoup plus chers dans l’île que directement à Venise!

  • Dommage que nous ayons visiter Burano de nuit en 3e visite. Nous n’avons pas pu apprecier les belles façades. Peut être que 2 visites seulement (Murano et Burano) seraient suffisantes pour les apprécier pleinement en prenant un peu plus de temps. Sinon super !
