Escape the crowds and chaos of Venice and catch a glimpse of what the city used to be – an island of artisans world-famous for their craft, where traditional skills have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Join us on a half-day trip to these timeless islands, so close yet worlds away from crowded Piazza San Marco.

- Plenty of time to explore the islands and shop 
- Live demonstrations in the art of glassblowing and lace-making
- Guaranteed no more than 25 people per group

Wat kan ik verwachten?

The tour starts with a short boat ride to Murano, a small island world-famous for its glass. Once upon a time Murano glassblowers were the only people in Europe who knew how to create a mirror and their skills were so valued that they were banned from leaving the city of Venice under threat of execution. Many things have changed since then, but the craft has stayed the same. 

On our first stop you'll get to watch a craftsman in action and learn what gives the glass its color, how does silica sand become glass and which is the most difficult part of his job. Afterwards you will have time to browse the huge collection of glass art here and wander the island on your own. 

Then we head back on the boat and off to our next stop, Burano. The tiny island of Burano is famous for two reasons. The first is for its houses. Huddled tightly together along streets and canals, each one is painted a different color, with laundry strung up across the narrow streets. Legend has it that fishermen started this trend, painting their houses in bright shades so that they could see home from a distance.

But Burano’s major claim to fame is its centuries old tradition of lacemaking. Your guide will take you through the streets of Burano to a small building where women sit stitching lace like their mothers and grandmothers before them. 

We do not take a commission on purchases you make. In fact, we pass on our 10%+ discounts on to you, so you can shop for less.
