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. You will visit MURANO, BURANO and TORCELLO which are the traditional destinations among the islands, after sailing past the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th century Benedectine church designed by Andrea Palladio, the public Gardens, the tip of Sant'Elena and the Lido (the famous beach resort), the boat arrives at MURANO known throughout the world for its glass manufacturing industry. 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 fishermens’ 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. You can walk 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. Then, after a short sail, you will reach the quiet and sparsely populated island of TORCELLO, the first centre of civilization in the estuary. Only the Cathedral of “Santa Maria Assunta” with its magnificent mosaics and the church of “Santa Fosca” remain as testimony of its former glory. Summary: Explore the Venetian Lagoon on a four and a half hour cruise to the islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello! After gliding through the water past San Giorgio Maggiore and Lido, you’ll enjoy stops on each of the three famous islands to learn about their artisan heritage. From the second floor of 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, admire the vibrantly painted fishermen houses of Burano, and discover Byzantine mosaics in Torcello’s Cathedral!
