Murano & Burano Islands Half Day Guided Tour by Private Boat

1,231 reviews
The islands of Murano and Burano, with their artisan glass and lace workshops, are just a ferry ride from Venice, and visitors won’t want to miss either. On this tour, delve into the practice and history of two of Venice’s great artisan traditions by visiting glassblowers in Murano and traditional lace-making workshops in lesser-known Burano. Get an authentic look at Italian traditions that have lasted for centuries with a guide.

Well, I am addicted to Venice and the carnival. It is just magic, cannot call it differently. Each time I walk with my costume on San Marco, it feels like a fairytale. Unfortunately, I do not have pictures to share because while wearing a costume, it is not easy to make pictures, but I will try to do it next year, hopefully the carnival will not be cancelled.

It is the biggest and most famous place of Venice. The place is usually totally crowded and suffering from overtourism. During Carneval, there was a light show and concert on the square. Around the square, there are a lot of famous buildings and monuments, like the cathedral San Marco, Palazzo Ducale, the tower of the cathedral or the clock tower. As it is the most popular place, it is of course the most expensive for souveniers or food.

I live near Venice and I always love going to this unique city. But during Covid19 my husband and me had a surreal experience: Venezia was almost empty. We never saw it like that, without foreign tourists. Even though it was sad, it was so wonderful! Her (Yes, Venezia is female!) architecture, her history, her people, her soul came out in a new light! I hope that soon everyone of you can come and see this extra-ordinary city. You must! Happy future journeys to all of you! ASAP!!!!!

There's something about Piazza San Marco that makes it so special. Yes, there are crowds (we've visited a couple of times and it's been quite busy), but the view both in towards the square and out towards the canal are stunning. With so much to look at and a selection of coffee shops and restaurants, you can just while away the hours.

Beautiful piazza - when we visited relatively empty which was both amazing and sad. I had seen this piazza several times previously with hordes of tourists, but this time because of COVID19 people were scarce. A bittersweet experience.
