Enjoy a full-day boat tour to discover the 3 most famous islands of Venice Lagoon: Murano, Burano and Torcello. The tour starts just few steps far away from Venice Train Station, more precisely, in front of Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant. After getting onboard, you will head to Murano, and stop there for one and a half hours. Here you will visit one of the many glass factories located in the island and attend a glass-making demonstration.
The second stop of this 6-hour tour is Burano, with its marvellous colored houses. The last stop of the tour is Torcello, known as the island where the Venetian civilization was born in the 7th century.

Our Venetian islands tour is coming to an end but ... there is one last surprise: the return trip: this itinerary will allow you to enjoy a splendid panoramic view of the Venetian lagoon ... a very romantic and breathtaking sight. The tour ends in Riva degli Schiavoni, close by St Mark's Square

The second stop of this day tour to the Venetian islands will be Burano with its colorful houses.

In the two hours at your disposal, you can choose to visit some of the most interesting things like the leaning bell tower or the house of Bepi Suà, the Lace Museum which is housed in the historic Palazzo del Podestà of Torcello and which exhibits rare examples of this precious fabric, known and appreciated throughout the world.

Isola Torcello
The last stop will be Torcello, where the Venetian civilization was born: the first settlements date back to the 7th century when local folks sought refuge on the island to escape the Barbarians’ invasions. Today Torcello has just over 10 inhabitants but its historical and artistic testimonies make it a very popular destination for visitors from all over the world. We suggest you visit the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, the ruins of the Baptistery of San Giovanni Evangelista, ‘Attila’s Throne" and the Devil's Bridge, today still wrapped in a mysterious legend.

Quasi perfetto serviva una mezz'ora in più a murano. Organizzazione eccellente, comoda la partenza dalla stazione dei treni. Guida molto brava e molto gentile. Il tempo impiegato ci voleva tutto. Siamo partiti alle 10,30 e arrivati poco prima delle 17 in Piazza San Marco (siamo scesi li per vedere il centro di Venezia) e non in stazione dei treni.
Schöner Ausflug

Nach Corona mit sehr vielen Touristen.
