Description

Venture out into the waters surrounding Venice to spend a day island hopping between Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Visit historic glass-making factories in Murano, check out lace-making houses in Burano, and stroll in the shadows of Torcello's stunning Byzantine churches.
After meeting up with your guide, travel by boat to the island of Murano, where you can visit with artisan glass-makers and watch them create everything from intricate jewellery to grand lamps and chandeliers. From there, head to Burano to stroll between its distinctive and brightly coloured fishermen’s houses. Learn about the island's legacy of lace makers, browse shops selling their incredible creations, and then continue to Torcello: investigate the colourful mosaics in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, pass by the weather-worn columns of the Church of Santa Fosca, and snap photos of 14th-century palaces.
Then you come back to Venice island to enjoy a fascinating walking tour through the secret and picturesque corners of Venice off the beaten track where time seems to have stood still at centuries ago. A qualified tour guide will escort you through the history of Saint Mark’s area and Rialto Bridge!
At the end, you will get on a gondola for a pleasant ride along the romantic waterways and part of the magnificent Grand Canal where you will admire the ancient palaces as Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Ca’ Dario Palace, The Gritti Palace and the breath-taking St. Mark's Basin!

Torcello peux intéressant et payant. Gondole avec d’autres personnes et gondolier pas en tenue (c’était le Seul de Venise). La visite guidée était bien

If you don't have much time in Venice and want to squeeze everything possible in, than the tour was fine. Really wasn''t enough time on each island and felt very rushed. Did not get a Gondola ride even though it was a clear and beautiful day. Nothing was even mentioned that there was one included.
