Itinerary

DAY 1ARRIVAL IN VENICE

Upon your arrival in Venice, you will be greeted and tranferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy at your leisure.

DAY 2MURANO BURANO & TORCELLO TOUR

With this tour you can visit the three most important islands of the Venetian lagoon. Torcello is known for being the first island to be inhabited in the Venice Lagoon: the inhabitants of Altino moved here during the 5th century. The cathedral contains some wonderful mosaics. Today, the island is known as a place of great quiet and tranquility because it has a little more than 20 residents and seems like a place that time forgot. Burano, inhabited by 3000 people, is known for its handmade lace and typical sweets “bussolai”, but also for its brightly colored houses that, it is said, were painted by its inhabitants to make them recognizable to the fishermen coming home in heavy foggy weather. Murano is known around the world for the artistic production of blown glass. Initially, the production took place in Venice, but, at that time, the buildings were made of wood and often the fire escaped from the ovens and caused dangerous fires. The government of the Republic ordered then to move the seat of the furnaces to Murano. The island also hosts the Glass Museum which contains a large collection of very ancient glass masterpieces and surely deserves a visit. In case of no show total amount will be charged.
