Our half-day sightseeing tour (4h 30min) offers you the opportunity to sail from the heart of Venice to its most authentic lagoon.
The meeting point is scheduled at the yellow desk of Serenissima Motoscafi in front of the Hotel Danieli next to St. Mark’s Square at 1.40 pm. To be more precise, the desk is located in Riva degli Schiavoni at the foot of the Ponte di Paglia at the corner of the “Prigioni” and Calle degli Albanesi. Afterwards, a companion will guide you to the boarding point. Here, at 2.00 pm, you will start the boat trip.
On board the boat the guide will give you multilingual explanations, with a microphone inside the boat, about the islands and the lagoon.
The navigation will appear immediately panoramic: you will cross, in fact, the Basin of San Marco along the Island of San Giorgio and the gardens of Sant’Elena. From here you will arrive at the first destination: the island of Murano, famous for its master glassmakers. Here there is a stop with the possibility to visit a glass factory with a demonstration of the art of glass blowing or the island.
The second stop of the excursion is in Burano: island famous for its colourful houses and its hand-crafted lace work. This stop includes enough time to be overwhelmed by the rainbow of the colorful houses, go hunting for some lacemakers and visit the Church of San Martino where there are the relics of Santa Barbara, patron saint of sailors.
The excursion continues to the island of Torcello: the first Venetian settlement, which today has only ten inhabitants. Our advice is to explore the monumental area. This one includes the ancient Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta with its Byzantine mosaics, the Church of Santa Fosca with its visitable bell tower, the Throne of Attila and the Devil’s Bridge, famous for being one of the few bridges in Venice without parapets.
The tour ends with the return to St. Mark’s area. Here you will have time to continue your day in Venice in total freedom.
