GBP55.0 Per Person
Approximately 5.00 hours.
Visit two picturesque islands in the Venetian Lagoon and discover traditional handicrafts.
Soak up the sights as you cruise through the water, passing by the stocky Arsenale, the ancient San Pietro di Castello, and the St Mark’s district (be sure to look out for the ornate Doge’s Palace).
Hop off at Murano Island and visit a local glass factory to find out why the treasures created here have been highly coveted since the 16th century. Watch how the sparkling glass art pieces are skillfully blown and perhaps pick up a souvenir from the gallery.
Head over to the island of Burano and follow your guide into the cheerful fishing village here. Stroll by the brightly painted houses and visit a traditional gallery to see how quality lace is made and enjoy a refreshing drink.
