Escape the crowds and chaos of Venice and catch a glimpse of what the city used to be – an island of artisans world-famous for their craft, where traditional skills have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.

After meeting in a central Venice location we’ll start our tour with a short and comfortable boat ride to Murano. There’s a lot to see on the way and your guide will keep you entertained with a description of the sights as you pass them. Discover how products are made with a visit to a glass blowing factory.

Then it’s back on the boat and off to our next stop, Burano. The tiny island is famous for its houses, huddled tightly together along streets and canals, each one is painted a different color with laundry strung up across narrow streets.

But Burano’s major claim to fame is its centuries old tradition of lacemaking. Stay and watch their painstaking work, listen to a full commentary on what, in the age of sewing machines, has become a dying art and then take the time to explore the fascinating museum del Merletto.

There is free time in Burano to enjoy some lunch before moving onto the next part of the tour. Lunch not included.

Dont forget to get some cookies of bussola and essi - unique to this island and some of the best local pastries you can get in Italy.

After meeting the guide your final stop will be the island of Torcello, where you can visit the famous church and explore this tiny island before returning to your departing point for approx 5pm.
