Venture into the Venetian Lagoon to explore 3 fascinating islands—Murano, Burano and Torcello. Learn about Murano's historic glass-making factories, Burano's colourful, centuries-old lace-making houses and Torcello's ancient Byzantine churches.

Your first stop is Murano, famous worldwide for its glass manufacturing industry. Watch in awe as talented artists create beautiful glasswork pieces that range from small souvenirs and jewellery to magnificent lamps and chandeliers.

The next island in the lagoon is Burano, known for its many brightly coloured fishermen’s houses and the local lace-making industry. Use this opportunity to pick up some artisanal souvenirs to take home.

Your final stop is the small island of Torcello, the earliest settlement of Venice and home to several Byzantine churches. Though once more populated and powerful than Venice itself, the island is now home to only 20 people. This fall from power is shrouded in mystery and legend.

Great tour overall. Wish we could have spent a couple of minutes longer on each island, as 30-40 minutes is not that much. However, everything was very well organized so we didn't feel like we missed out on that much. If you book this tour on Expedia (or anything else than buying it directly) please remember that you still need to queue at the meeting point with your tickets to get new tickets from them. It is not enough to have the tickets received here printed out, as they will not accept them. Also, if the tour starts at 2 pm, for example, it doesn't make any sense to be there 20 minutes before, because everybody else will be there too and it gets very crowded. 5 to 2 is enough as the last guide will leave at 2 and take you to the boat.
