Murano, Burano & Torcello Islands

Today begins with a boat ride to the island of Murano. Built on a series of small islands connected by bridges in the Venetian Lagoon, Murano is known throughout the world for its glass manufacturing industry. Enjoy a visit inside one of the island’s glass-blowing factories to witness firsthand the methods of this fascinating art. Continue to Burano, the most scenic island of the Lagoon, famous for its colorful houses and central church with leaning campanile. Visit Baldassarre Galuppi Street, the island’s main avenue, filled with tiny shops that sell famous handmade lace. Continue to the island of Torcello to visit the church of Santa Fosca. Here you will see the church’s unique portico in the form of a Greek cross and the Byzantine Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. Return to the main island of Venice, enjoy a gelato and continue to your hotel. Spend the afternoon at your leisure exploring Venice on your own.
