What to expect

A cruise in the Lagoon is a suggestive as well as enjoyable experience, a new and different way to see Venice off the beaten tracks of mass tourism. We offer you the possibility to enjoy a unique experience which will lead you to the historic, artistic and popular heart of the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, comfortably seated in a Grand Tourism motor-boat driven by a highly qualified crew and guided in 5 languages by a specialized tour leader.

You will visit Murano, Burano and Torcello which are the traditional destinations among the islands located in the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon. After sailing past the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th century Benedectine church designed by Andrea Palladio and built between 1566 and 1610, 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. Here there is a stop to visit one of the factories. The second stop is on the picturesque island of Burano, famous not only for its lace but also for its fishermen's houses painted in bright colors. 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 the testimony of its former glory.

The tour includes the service of a specialized official tour leader which provides some information on board and assistance on the islands.
