Description - What to expect

Climb on your luxury motorboat and set off across the Venetian Lagoon to your first stop, the island of Murano, which is several small isles dissected by a wide canal. Follow your knowledgeable guide around the island of Murano and learn about the island’s prosperity in the 1400s and 1500s, when it was the center of glassmaking in Europe. Visit the highlight of your tour, a glass factory, to watch a glassblower creating beautiful pieces of glassware, a Murano tradition that dates back to 1291.

Next, visit Burano, the island known for its lace production, going back to the 16th century. Visit local shops to taste the typical local sweet called bussolà and the town museum to admire high-end lace on display and admire the island’s brightly-colored fishermen’s houses. Your tour then ends with the return boat ride to Venice.
