Enjoy an unforgettable day discovering the wonderful islands of Venice with an expert guide! Starting from St. Mark's Square, you'll cross the Venice Lagoon on a panoramic boat to admire Murano, Burano and Torcello, while your expert guide explains the history and culture of the islands.

Your first destination will be Murano, where you will have the opportunity to visit a glass factory and watch a glassblowing demonstration done by a local artist, who will create a unique glass object in front of you. Afterwards you will have some free time to enjoy the beautiful island.

Then, you will visit the picturesque island of Burano, famous not only for its lace making but also for its brightly painted fishermen's houses. Here you can walk the typical colorful streets and taste the delicious local sweets 'Bussolai'.

The last stop will be Torcello, 'the green island', where you can admire the oldest churches in the lagoon and discover how Venice was born.
You will conclude your excursion by crossing the lagoon by boat, admiring the fascinating Bacino di San Marco.
