Description

A new and different way to see Venice off the most beaten track of mass tourism! A cruise in the Lagoon is a suggestive as well as an enjoyable experience. We offer you the possibility to enjoy a unique experience which will lead you to the historic, artistic and popular heart of the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, comfortably seated in a Grand Tourism motor-boat driven by a highly qualified crew and commentated in different languages by a specialized tour guide. From the boat you can take some breathtaking pictures of the Lagoon and its several islands. Murano and Burano are the most famous and traditional tourist destinations among the small islands in the Lagoon: this excursion will give you the opportunity to enjoy a very relaxed trip. First stop, after a fascinating boat ride in the Lagoon dominated by nature, will be Murano known throughout the world for its glassmaking Art. You will visit a Furnace to see glass products being made. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to buy a piece of the local production on site. The tour will then continue towards Burano the island famous for its lace-making and for the brightly-colored fishermen’s’ houses. An ancient legend narrates that fishermen painted their houses in order to see them from long distance. Getting off the boat you will be in a green lane and after a short walk you will arrive at the Island’s Main Square. On the right of the Square is San Martino’s Church which houses the “Crucifixion” painting by Tiepolo, and the famous leaning tower. If you are interested in the lace history we suggest you visit the “Museo del Merletto” which displays the craft and history of Burano lace or wander along the tiny streets and picturesque canals where you can buy lace products or opt to go into a pastry store to try the local sweet production – the “Bussolà” and the “Esse” biscuits. With this special excursion, you will have more time to stay in Burano which is probably the most charming island in the lagoon, arriving in this Island for lunch time you will also have the opportunity to choose one of the picturesque locations for a quick lunch enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of this venue. Summary: Explore the Venetian Lagoon on a cruise to the islands of Murano and Burano! After gliding through the water past San Giorgio Maggiore and Lido, you’ll enjoy stops on each of the two famous islands to learn about their artisan heritage. From the boat you can take some breath-taking pictures of the Lagoon and its several islands! Learn about Murano’s glass making prestige during a factory visit and admire the vibrantly painted fishermen houses of Burano!
