The best way to see Venice is as ancient visitors saw it: from the water. But you don’t need to worry about water-bus timetables or fork out $$$ for water taxis. This convenient motorboat cruise brings you to three key islands of Venice’s lagoon—Murano, Burano, and Torcello—with a guide to show you the sights, if you want. Tour includes 10% discount on lace: perfect for anyone who loves crafts.
Board your comfortable motorboat near St. Mark’s Square and enjoy an introduction to Venice’s lagoon. Your first stop is Murano, known for glass-making: Choose to explore independently or visit one of its famous glass workshops and watch glass being blown.
Savor the sights as you continue to Burano, a charming fishing island that specializes in hand-crafted lace. Visit a typical lace museum, admire historic lace, and enjoy a 10% discount on your purchases from the Emilia Burano lace shop. You might also want to explore the island on your own and try its signature cookies.
Finally, visit Torcello, the oldest inhabited island and home to sights like the Byzantine Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta, the Devil’s Bridge, and Attila’s Throne. Your craft will then return to St. Mark’s Square.
