Glass Blowing & Lace Making Murano & Burano Islands
Join this half-day trip to these timeless islands, so close yet worlds away from crowded Piazza San Marco. After meeting in a central Venice location we’ll start our tour with a short and comfortable boat ride to Murano. There’s a lot to see on the way and your guide will keep you entertained. Taking our first steps on beautiful Murano, a small island world-famous for its glass. No staged presentations for us, this is a real, workaday studio and our experience here will be as authentic as it comes. Afterwards you will have time to browse the huge collection of glass art here and wander the island on your own. Then it’s back on the boat and off to our next stop, Burano. The tiny island of Burano is famous for two reasons – for its houses, huddled tightly together along streets and canals, each one is painted a different color with laundry strung up across narrow streets. Burano’s major claim to fame is its centuries old tradition of lace making. Stay and watch their painstaking work, listen to a full commentary on what, in the age of sewing machines, has become a dying art and then take the time to explore the fascinating museum at the back. This specific tour of the islands spends less time on the boat and less time trekking inland, giving you more time to experience this wonderful corner of the world at a pace that suits you.
