    Escape the crowds and experience Venice of the past – an island of artisans and craft. A VIP experience to three magical islands of Venice awaits when you take a private luxury boat with free flowing prosecco and an expert local guide. There’s lot to see and take in, so be prepared to see the other side of Venice, so close to the main city yet so different.

    After leaving Central Venice, your itinerary will be as follows:

    First stop: Murano

    • Most famous and most visited Venetian island for the exquisite glasswork produced here
    • Visit a glass factory where you will see master craftsmen at work, creating beautiful pieces of glassware
    • See some stunning works of art at private Art Galleries that belong to the glass factory and are otherwise closed to the general public
    • Enjoy free time in the island for shopping or spending leisure time

    Next: Boat Ride to Torcello

    Explore the island on your own and walk up to the Santa Fosca, Venice’s first cathedral known for its beautiful mosaics and Byzantine structure.

    Final stop: Burano

    • Tour the fishing village that has many streets and canals lined with bright, pastel-coloured houses.
    • Visit a lace-making factory, see women artisans stitching lace with their hands, and learn about this painstaking art form.
    • Spend free time winding your way along the kaleidoscopic streets, sampling delicious cookies in local bakeries and buying lace products as keepsakes.

    At the end of the tour, you will return back to the city.
