Description

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.

  • Prévoyez le point de RdV au niveau du bateau et non à 10mn de marche intensive parmi tous les touristes en vadrouille (pensez aux vieilles jambes). Sinon superbe visite des 3 iles pour passer une bonne après-midi. A conseiller.
