    What to Expect
    Explore the history and beauty of the Venetian islands while enjoying the personalized attention of a private tour. Choose from three different departure times to suit your schedule, and then connect with your expert guide in central Venice at the prearranged time. Set out into the Venetian Lagoon aboard a comfortable motorboat, and admire a new perspective on the city as its grand structures recede into the distance.

    Your first stop is the island of Murano, where glassblowers have been practicing their craft for centuries. Visit a glassblowing workshop for a firsthand look at this amazing art form, and learn what makes Murano glass coveted around the globe. You’ll also have a chance to explore the island’s historic streets and unique shops.

    At the neighboring island of Burano, you’ll be welcomed by colorful fishermen’s homes and a charming historic port. Burano is famous for its lacemaking legacy, and local craftswomen still practice centuries-old techniques to weave intricate lace that is considered among the finest in the world. Enjoy leisure time to browse local shops, where you can purchase a unique lace souvenir to take home.

    Finally, make your way to tranquil Torcello — a less-visited locale that boasts the distinction of being the first site of Venetian settlement. Learn about the island’s earliest inhabitants, who fled here in the 5th century to escape barbarian armies. Climb the bell tower at the 12th-century Church of Santa Fosca for panoramic views, and admire the detailed mosaics at the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta — the oldest church in Venice.  

    Your 4-hour tour concludes with a boat ride back to the original departure point in Venice.

    Please note: Price listed is per person, based on six adults per boat. A minimum of two people per booking is required.
