Explore the scenic corners of Venice's North Lagoon by traditional boat. The 4-hour tour travels to the islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello, and San Michele, as well as “The Garden of Venice,” Sant'Erasmo, and the Convent of San Francesco del Deserto.
What to Expect
Cruise Venice's picturesque North Lagoon on a traditional Venetian boat and see for yourself why UNESCO certified it a World Heritage Site.
The flat-bottom gondola can reach most of the lagoon's most stunning corners, sailing between the small canals and sandbanks as you share a bottle of white wine, learn about the city's history, and marvel at the spectacular views.
The tour travels to the islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello, and the cemetery island of San Michele. Other scenic highlights include shallow waters, a saltmarsh, and Sant'Erasmo – “The Garden of Venice” – as well as the magnificent 12th-century Convent of San Francesco del Deserto, which can only be reached by private boat. The tour ends with the option to eat at one of the area's best fish restaurants.
