On arrival at the series of small isles called Murano, disembark and visit a glassblowing factory with your guide. Watch expert glass blowers at work in the furnace and learn about stunning medieval glassware that dates to the 12th century. 

Continue by motorboat to the fishing isle of Burano, known for its handmade lace production and traditional linen handicrafts. Browse for high-end lace in shops among the colorful houses.

Your 4-hour excursion ends back in Piazza San Marco.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

One of the highlights of our entire trip. The ideal way to travel and experience the Venetian Islands. The guide and skipper were exceptional allowing us to see the best of each island at our own pace.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2017

This tour was a.bit too commercial. Murano is better seen during the week. That part is mostly sales pitch to sell glass. Burano was more colorful so the walk through the neighborhoods was interesting. Still there was an emphasis on shopping. For some reason we skipped the last island.
