Enjoy a pleasant boat ride along the Venetian lagoon while you discover Murano and Burano with this Venice Islands Tour. Experience a glass-blowing workshop and visit the famous floating city.
Venice Islands Tour
At 10 am we'll meet at Lungomare San Felice Street to board the boat. We'll set sail at 10:30 am and skirt the coast of the island of Lido and its extensive beaches, approaching the island of St. Helena as well as Venice itself. The panorama is incredible!
Our first stop will be Murano, the second largest island in the Venetian lagoon, known for its famous glass. We'll visit a factory to learn how the technique of blown glass is made. After this 15 minute visit, you'll have almost an hour of free time to walk around the streets and past the island's canals.
Next, we'll go to Burano, where you'll have an hour and a half to get to know the island at your leisure, admiring its beautiful coloured houses. Did you know that, according to legend, these bright colours were used to help sailors recognise their houses on foggy days?
Then, the remainder of the day will be up to you, with two options. We can return to Punta Sabbioni and conclude the tour arriving at the point of origin at 3:15 pm. Or, if you prefer, we can leave you in Venice to tour it on your own, with the return boat included!
Return to Punta Sabbioni
If you stay in Venice at the end of the tour, you can return by boat to Punta Sabbioni at 4 pm, 5 pm, 6 pm, 7 pm and 8:30 pm. Please note that this final time slot is only available from the 1st of June to the 11th of September.
