The essence of our islands in a halfday or fullday experience!


Discover the secrets of Venetian Lagoon by private historical boat tour, act as a local: discover the lagoon by water!

The islands of the northern lagoon were the first settlement chosen by the people living on the mainland even before Venice was founded.

Let's visit Murano, the island choosen by the government of the Republic in 1291 to be the place where to concentrate the magnificent glass blowing production to protect Venice and avoid too many fires caused in town by the furnaces.

We can't misse the magic Burano, the so called fishermen island, where all buildings and houses are painted in unusual and bright colours to recognize their propriety and easily find the way back home during the many foggy days. Burano is very famous for the lace "merletto" production and delicious local cookies "buranelli"!

Our last stop will be Torcello, the island is the enchanting Torcello that houses the most ancient church of the Venetian lagoon and where nowadays live less than 20 people

Itinerary

The tour will start at Fondamenta Nuove in Cannaregio where we'll find the ghistorical venetian boat that let us discover the lagoon and its islands! I can firstly meet you at your hotel if you prefer.

We will first visit the island of Murano and we will watch a demonstration inside one of the few original glass factories and furnaces still in activity.

We will then reach the next island: Burano. Originally a fishermen's village, it is a island full of secrets not just the island of the bright coulored houses and the "merletto" lace production. You'll love it!

Then we will move on to vist our last island, Torcello, where ancient ruins of the Venetian civilization can be seen. A wild but unique island in the lagoon.
A short break for a food local experience will be given according to your taste and we will go back to Venice enjoying the view of the lagoon!
