Sail off to a tailor-made tour of the islands of Murano and Burano, the most famous and picturesque islands of the northern lagoon.
During this fascinating tour you will discover the best of Murano and Burano, what to visit, their traditions and handicrafts, on a relaxing boat cruise.
The first stop will be Murano, which has been inhabited since Roman times. Refugees from Altino and the mainland found shelter here during the Barbarian invasions. In the Middle Ages, the development of this island is strictly connected with glass and, nowadays, Murano is famous worldwide for glass factories. The glassblowing tradition has been handed down from one generation to another in order to maintain the ancient secret technique. Definitely the perfect place for an authentic glass souvenir. On request you can visit a glass factory and watch a demonstration of the art of glass blowing or you can freely manage the time at your disposal on the island.
The following stop will be Burano, the island of fishermen, laces and brightly painted houses. It is the most picturesque island of the lagoon, visible from the distance because of its high bell tower. Here, lace handcraft has become an art and a tradition that has led to the foundation of a professional school called "Scuola dei Merletti".
