Overview

Visit two of the well-known islands in the Venice lagoon and dine on a splendid seafood lunch during this 4.5-hour boat tour of Murano and Burano. Explore the islands famous for glass and lace, respectively, traveling by boat through the lagoon. Savor local seafood during lunch in a traditional osteria in Burano.
  • 4.5-hour boat tour of Murano and Burano plus lunch
  • Watch glass makers at work on Murano
  • Enjoy a typical seafood lunch on Burano
  • See the sights of the Venice lagoon from a boat
Meet your guide in central Venice on the Riva degli Schiavoni. Board a boat and begin your scenic tour of the Venetian lagoon.

Begin your half-day cruise on the island of Murano, not far from the main Venetian islands. This is where Venice's famous glass makers are located. Visit a glass factory to see molten glass being blown and molded into shape. Or, if you'd prefer, enjoy about 1 hour of free time to explore the island at your leisure.

Continue to the island of Burano, where you'll head straight for a traditional osteria known as 'Al Raspo de Ua' for lunch. Dine on a 4-course menu including either fish pie or a seafood pasta, a sea bass filet or an array of deep-fried mixed seafood, plus some typical Burano desserts and coffee.

After lunch, enjoy some free time to explore the colorful island of Burano, shopping for the island's famous handmade lace or simply wandering the charming streets. The visit to Burano is roughly 1.5 hours.

After your time in Burano, return to the boat and head back to central Venice.

I loved this tour! I wish we had more time at each place but it was a great tour! We were able to see glass blowing in action he made three items. We shopped for some glass and this incredible factory! Burano was beautiful too! Quick boat rides as well.

The boat ride was delightful, the glass blowing demonstration was great. The shopping afterwards was excellent. Our lunch was delicious too. Both quaint islands to visit for an enjoyable day. Totally enjoyed it.

This may be the worst tour ever. We found the checkin point with no problem. We were told to wait and someone would come, when they did we walked about a quarter mile to our boat. The guide had to give the tour in about 5 different languages over a garbled loud speaker. We take tours because we like to hear the history of the places we visit. There was none of that, she spoke so fast to get all of the languages in that you couldn't understand anything that was said. The stop in Murano was a short demonstration and a few minutes to shop. In Burano we had a terrible seafood lunch and almost no time to look around or shop. They just rushed everyone along. Do not book this tour. You can take the water bus to both islands with your regular 7.50 ticket and spend as much time as you like. Burano is definitely the more colorful and busy island. Murano is just to see the glass making. Murano glass can be purchased anywhere.

We found the yellow booth with no problem but the man was not very helpful. He took our information and a lot of other people were signing up for the boat tour. The guide came and she spoke several languages and by that time it was a big group. She sat on the top level of the boat and talked fast over a loud speaker and we finally gave up trying to understand what she was saying. The trip to Murano was fine, glassblower was interesting and we enjoyed the showroom but there were lots of people purchasing items so we had to hurry. When we got to Burano we were really rushed. The guide did not have the info about our lunch and had to call since she had not been told. The lunch was wonderful and a lot of food but we were the only ones who had booked this with lunch so again rushed. Loved this island and would like to have spent more time there. Had to run to catch the boat before it left. If we ever go back I would spend the day on our own and get lunch on our own.
