The Islands of Venice and the secret of the Glass Manufactoring
The tour is an occasion to travel outside Venice by water taxi. We will experience how the Lagoon looks like from the "vaporetto" (watertaxi). It is a little longer tour, but we will have the possibility to enjoy the Islands of Venice: Murano and Burano are two of the most famous islands of Venice. First we will stop in Murano and visit old churches and glass factories where experts workers will show us how they blow the Venetian Glass, famous in the entire world. Later we will continue to Burano, the coloured island of fishers, full of beautiful little roads and natural views.
From St. Mark's Square or your hotel in Venice, we will ride the private water taxi to Murano first and then to Burano.
We will visit the Church of St. Peter in Murano or the Church of Santa Maria and Donato and a glass factory. Again by water taxi we will continue to Burano, the island of fishers. After a walk in the quite little roads of Burano we will take the watertaxi back to Venice.

We loved our tour with Deborah! she is very engaging and shares an excellent perspective and history of the places you see. She took us to interesting and unique locations. The boat was a fantastic way to see parts of Venice. Murano and Burano were great. We especially enjoyed the personalized tour of the glass blowing factory! Burano is beautiful.
