Overview

Explore five islands of the Venetian Lagoon including a guided tour of a medieval island monastery, a walking tour of Torcello and its cathedral, a visit and wine tasting at a hidden island winery, a walk through Burano and its colorful homes, and a glassmaking demonstration at Murano. You’ll experience the less crowded side of Venice that others don’t get to see, without the pressured shopping experience found on ‘budget’ island tours, on a small group tour excursion with a local Venetian guide.
