Full description
Discover a glass factory in Murano, the colorful houses of Burano, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta in Torcello with this full-day city cruise. This tour begins in Fusina, which is easy to get to by car or public transport — the perfect solution for those who want to visit the islands without going to Venice first. From Fusina, the boat will take you to Venice Riva Degli Schiavoni, a few steps away from St. Mark’s Square where you'll change boats. While you cruise, your professional tour guide will fill you in on the history and secrets of the Venice islands. In Murano, you'll see live demonstrations from master glassmakers. Next, you'll head to Burano, where you can browse local artisanry and try seafood delicacies. Finally, it's on to Torcello to discover ancient religious edifices and some of the earliest mosaics in Venice.

Leider begann unser Ausflug so, dass wir 10 Uhr in Fusina an der Bootsanlegestelle standen, aber kein Boot kam. Nach etlichen Telefonaten sollten wir zum Parkplatz Fusina gehen und uns dort am Schalter ein Ticket für den Public Transport ausstellen lassen. So konnten wir 11 Uhr nach Zattare fahren und wurden dort dann von einem Il Doge Boot abgeholt und nach Murano gebracht. Dort sollten die uns der Gruppe anschließen, die bereits eine Glasmachervorführung gesehen hatte und inzwischen im Ort war. Für Murano hatten wir nur noch 45 Minuten, was sehr schade war. Der Rest des Ausflugs verlief planmäßig. Allerdings hatten wir den ganzen Tag das Gefühl, unter Zeitdruck zu stehen und würden die Inseln (vor allem Murano und Burano) das nächste Mal auf eigene Faust besuchen. Die Schuld für den verspäteten Start gab man Get your Guide. Einen Rabatt oder eine andere Entschädigung sollten wir dort erfragen.
