Torcello Burano Murano with a real local!
Hi, I'm Andrea! I was rewarded for my university studies as “Merits informative of the Venetian culture” from the City of Venice in December 2013 I have two degree in history and history of arts and now I carry out the activity of Tour Leader here in Venice sharing to as many people as possible my great passions ;)
During this half-day trip, I will accompany you to discover the most beautiful lagoon islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello aboard the strangest type of bus in the world: the Vaporetto! The best friend of all Venetians since 1895 when his unbeatable service began!
(At 9 am an early, intimate, unforgettable, and relaxing trip to the lagoon :)
The best we will explore Torcello, 17 century ago the first community of Venice.
Today the last 9 locals still live inside a "dark age city" where everything is like many centuries ago.
From the top of its Romanesque Tower, you will enjoy an impressive view of the Venetian lagoon! (Entrance to Torre Torcello 5 euros NOT INCLUDED)
How about the second incredible trip to Burano, the fascinating and colorful city, a fishing community famous for its thousand-year-old lace industry?
You will see one of the last lace factories where the last old lacers are still doing this very old craft tradition! I am sure: you will love them!
At the end, we will visit the world famous Murano, where the last 20 families still produce our amazing glass masterpieces like 1000 years ago.
The free tour will be through "Glasser street": we will explore a real glass factory with its family art gallery and see the masters at work!
(Around 12, I really suggest you have lunch in Burano, where some of the best local seafood cuisine is prepared, but it is optional, is up to you ;)
