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. . . .
After meeting we board a private boat and cruise part of the Grand Canal on our way to the abandoned island of Torcello to visit the oldest building in the lagoon, the cathedral of St Mary. Burano instead 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.
