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.
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.
