Tour Details

Discover Murano and Burano by Motorboat

On this half-day exploration, you will depart Venice by motorboat launch and explore the scenic lagoon with an expert, local guide navigating along the islands of Lido, Certosa, Vignole, and Sant Erasmo.

Your first stop will be at Murano, an island made famous by its 700 century-old tradition of blown glass art. Once on land, you will make your way to one of its glass factories to observe a glassblower create a work of art before your very eyes. View the beautiful array of jewelry, sculpture, and tableware, then pick out your favorite one to purchase as a souvenir.

Afterward, enjoy a picturesque and leisurely walk to the 12th century Cathedral of Saints Maria e Donato and step inside to see beautiful Romanic architecture and a well-preserved mosaic.

From there it's back on the boat for a short ride over to the island of Burano, listed as one of the 10 most colorful cities in the world by many international magazines. It will not be difficult to understand why as your guide brings you through streets lined with houses in almost every color you can imagine.

While here, drop by a lace laboratory to learn all about the island tradition of lace making. Then enjoy some free time to explore Burano on your own and do a little shopping before your return ride to Venice.

Reserve this family-friendly tour and discover a perfect introduction to the charming and historic islands of Murano and Burano.
