This is your chance to visit two of the islands surrounding Venice and St Mark’s. Leaving the pier by motor launch, travel along the Giudecca Canal to Murano, famous for its glass manufacture since 1291. The island became a sanctuary for glassmakers after furnaces were banned from Venice as a precaution against fire. Watch masters at work during a visit to a leading factory. Then, carry on to Burano, a tiny island dotted with brightly-painted houses. This one’s famous for its traditional lace-making, an art still practised by the local women. Afterwards, head back to Venice and spend some time exploring on your own. You’ll be dropped off at St Mark’s Square, which is right near all the famous sites. Get ready to be wowed.
The islands may be visited in the reverse order. Remember to check the pick-up point and time with your escort once you arrive at St Mark’s Square. This tour is escorted but not guided. The drop off point for this tour will be 4 bridges from St Mark's Square.
