Excursion Description

Walk from your hotel to the Cornoldi Pier, (10 minutes from St. Mark’s square). Board our private boat and will visit two of the Venetian Lagoon’s 40 islands--Murano and Burano. In 1291, when furnaces were banned from Venice as a fire precaution, the manufacturers of exquisite glassware were transferred to Murano. Glassware was one of the few Venetian exports and as such, the secrets of this skilful craft were tightly guarded.Today Murano products of blown-glass chandeliers, goblets and intricate works of art are renowned worldwide. You will visit one of the many workshops. Burano is next--brightly painted houses decorate this small and cheerful fishing village that is best known for its lacemaking. Admire these beautiful works that require hours of labour, and maybe even purchase some, if you like. Then, re-board your boat for your transfer to Venice Cruise Ship terminal.

NOTE: Luggage will be delivered directly to the ship.
