Our guide to Private Venice Burano & Murano Boat Tour

As you set sail from the magical city of Venice, our expert guide will share fascinating insights and stories about the region's rich history and vibrant culture. The serene beauty of Venice unfolds before you as you venture through the azure waters towards the picturesque island of Burano.

When you reach Burano, a vibrant fishing village awaits. Renowned for its delicate lace-making industry. It's a local tradition that dates back to the 16th century. The colourful island exudes charm with its colourful houses, quaint streets, and picturesque canals. The village's distinct, vibrant hues were once used by local fishermen to identify their homes through the mist of the lagoon.

During your visit to Burano, your knowledgeable guide will lead you through a delightful stroll, where you'll have the opportunity to admire Burano island's unique architecture, vibrant atmosphere, and observe the lace-making process at a local lacemaking shop.

Having explored the wonders of Burano, we'll journey towards the world-famous island of Murano, synonymous with a traditional glassblowing production that has brought it global recognition.

The people of Venice have been engaged in glass and crystal creation since the 10th century when Venetian merchants returned from the East with the secrets of this mesmerizing craft.

When you reach Murano, your fantastic guide will provide an engaging introduction to the island's rich history and its long-standing tradition of glassmaking. As part of our private Murano and Burano private boat tour, we'll explore a carefully selected glass gallery renowned for its exquisite creations and skilled artisans.

You'll have the rare opportunity to witness a live glass-blowing demonstration, an enthralling experience as master glassblowers transform molten glass into intricate works of art.

After the live demonstrations, visit the factory's showroom to marvel at the stunning array of glassware on display, from delicate figurines and elegant vases to elaborate chandeliers. Each piece exemplifies the island's extraordinary craftsmanship and the unparalleled skills of Murano's glassblowers.

If time permits, an optional visit to the Murano Glass Museum can be arranged with your guide, offering a deeper dive into the history and evolution of this fascinating art form.

As the sun begins to set, casting a warm, golden glow over Venice, you'll board the luxurious motor-launch for a relaxing transfer back to the heart of Venice.
