Additional Information

A cruise in the Lagoon is a suggestive as well as an enjoyable experience, seated in a Grand Tourism motor-boat driven by a highly qualified crew and commentated in different languages by a specialized tour guide. You will visit MURANO, BURANO and TORCELLO which are the traditional destinations among the islands, after sailing past the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th century Benedectine church designed by Andrea Palladio, the public Gardens, the tip of Sant’Elena and the Lido (the famous beach resort), the boat arrives at MURANO known throughout the world for its glass manufacturing industry. You will visit a Furnace to see glass products being made. The tour will then continue towards BURANO the island famous for its lace-making and for the brightly-colored fishermens’ houses. Getting off the boat you will be in a green lane and after a short walk you will arrive at the Island’s Main Square. On the right of the Square is San Martino’s Church which houses the “Crucifixion” painting by Tiepolo, and the famous leaning tower. Then, after a short sail, you will reach the quiet and sparsely populated island of TORCELLO, the first centre of civilization in the estuary. Only the Cathedral of “Santa Maria Assunta” with its magnificent mosaics and the church of “Santa Fosca” remain as testimony of its former glory.
