About this activity
Admire the beauties of the Lagoon of Venice and visit two of its most gorgeous islands: Murano and Torcello.

Start the tour from St. Mark's square area, where the Bora boat is docked. Get on board and cruise by some famous islands, such as San Giorgio Maggiore, San Servolo, La Certosa. Pass by the Arsenal while reaching Murano. This rounded island is divided into nine inlets crossed by a wide canal, called Canal Grande. Known for its glassware shops and factories, Murano boasts a long and still-thriving tradition dating back to 1291, when glass artisans moved their kilns from the old city centre to this island to keep the risk of fire away from the old medieval city. Explore the island, walk around and stop at a glass factory to watch a skilled glass master to blow some works of art. View some beautiful Murano's gothic style palaces and Byzantine churches, some still with mosaics and ornamental motifs designed in the 12th century. Then, get on board again and cruise toward Torcello island. The first island village was established between the fifth and sixth century as the earliest centre of civilization in the lagoon of Venice. Evidence of the island's glorious past are found on the ornaments of palaces and churches. The cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, founded in the seventh century, the remains of a large baptistery and the little church of Santa Fosca with a delighful portico and Byzantine enteteriors, are testimonials of the glorious past of this tiny island.
