Description

Embark on an unforgettable journey aboard an elegant boat, where you will be accompanied by a guide who will enrich your experience with detailed explanations about Murano Island and Burano. Begin your excursion at the iconic Piazza San Marco, from where we will head north of the Venetian lagoon. Our first stop is the charming island of Murano, renowned since the 13th century for its extraordinary handcrafted glass production. While exploring the island, you will have the unique opportunity to watch a live demonstration of the glassmaking process. Skilled glassmakers will transform raw materials into beautiful vases, glasses, and other forms, revealing secrets and techniques preserved for centuries. Then, after immersing yourself in the glassmaking art of Murano, we proceed to the picturesque island of Burano, famous for its vibrant fishermen's houses. Legend has it that these houses were painted in bright colors so fishermen could easily find them in the dense winter fog. Finally, as you stroll through Burano’s charming streets, you will see the island's elderly women working on fine lace. Stop and taste the delicious local dessert, bussolà, before concluding your tour experience.
