A boat ride to the North of the Lagoon


After all the guided tours and museums, it is high time to relax! Keep your last day in Venice to enjoy a boat ride and rest your feet! This tour is a mix of shopping and leisure: the lulling of the water, the smell of bakeries where the most popular biscotti are prepared everyday, the traditional or modern lace and the expensive glass. . . .
It is possible to stretch the time of this tour if you want to visit Torcello island or savour fresh fish and vegetables in a local restaurant.
Pls, contact for more infos and quotation.

Itinerary

After meeting we board a private boat and cruise part of the Grand Canal on our way to Burano island. Burano is a lovely fishing village famous for lace, colorful houses and delicious biscuits. A nice walk across the village will easily take us to a nextdoor island called Mazzorbo with its vegetable gardens and a recently restored vineyard. Here we catch our boat once more and proceed to Murano. On our way to a family-run factory to admire the art of glassblowing, we'll pass by an elegant Romanesque church and the only glass Museum of Italy.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: At the entrance to the Giardinetti (Royal Gardens) right off St Mark's Square. You'll locate me standing with a sign and your name on it.
If your hotel is conveniently located we can meet in the lobby.
I can meet you at your Cruise Terminal, too. In this case you have to inform me about your ship name and home port, i. e. Venice Cruise Terminal/Stazione Marittima or San Basilio.

End location: At the end of the tour I'll leave you at St Mark's Square or back to where we met.

Duration: 4 hours
