The departure of the tour is from near Saint Mark’s square: After an enjoyable trip across Saint Mark’s basin, towards the lido and then back along the north coastline of the city, we first stop in Murano, the island of the glass, to visit an artistic glass factory and see the glass manufactured and blown. The ride goes on to the next stop Burano, admiring, on the way to, the natural environment and the minor islands spread all around and pointed out by our tour leader explaining at the microphone Free time in Burano, the typical fishing island with its light and colored contrasts, its chocolate box painted houses and renowned for the ancient art of the lace making and embroidery and for the fresh home made characteristic cakes you shouldn’t miss to try. Torcello, the most ancient inhabited island will be our last stop. The visit of the Byzantine cathedral is highly recommended for the appeal of its remote past and its magnificent mosaics representing the last judgment.
