Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

5,011 reviews
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

We went to this place as it was on the Unica Venezia museum pass but not sure we would have gone if we had to pay for this. It is a bit rustic compared to other palazzos that are included on the pass

Despite not knowing anything about Carlo, we found this strange but welcoming home thoroughly enjoyable. If you enter with no expectations, a museum pass and good, lighthearted company- you can’t go wrong.

The Casa di Carlo Goldoni is a 15th century Gothic Palace and is situated just North of the San Toma ferry terminal on the south bank of the Grand Canal, where we got entry with our Unica Venezia museum passes. This house was the birthplace of the noted 18th century Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni and now houses a museum dedicated to his life and the Venetian theatre. This small museum consists of the salon with exhibits in 3 rooms on the first floor. Whilst I liked this museum and was interested in Goldoni's life, I did find the layout of the exhibition was a bit disjointed and confusing and more could be done in the range of theatrical exhibits, nevertheless it was a nice museum.

This small museum will not take you very long to complete unless you have an interest in the puppetry work of Carlo Goldoni. It is on the opposite side of the canal to the major sites and it is a little tricky to find with minimal signage. Its entry fee is included in the Museum Pass which was the main reason we visited. From a lower courtyard we entered a house that had occupied this theatre identity in the 1700s. We only found the English translation sheet in the end, but it did not adequately cover off all of the content. All bar one of the rooms were quite empty with a couple of pieces of furniture and mannequins. We think it was trying to display clothing of the time. There was one room full of marionettes. It took us ten minutes and we left underwhelmed.

Casa Goldoni is a very small museum with three rooms. If you are in the area and want to get out the sun, this is a good stop.
