09:30 I will collect you from your hotel and we will embark on a full day sightseeing excursion
at three of the famous islands of the Venetian Lagoon- Murano, Burano and Torcello.
Our first stop will be a glass blowing factory in Murano where we will experience the ancient
art of glass blowing and view the beautifully produced items. You will have the opportunity
to buy directly from the factory.
We will then move to Burano island. Burano has been listed in many international
magazines as among the top 10 most colourful cities in the world and you will see why! .
Burano is most famous for its lace making. You will experience first hand this ancient art
watching local crafts folk as they work.
We will then move onto Torcello, taking in the beautiful sights of this island. We will visit the 7th century Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and its spectacular Byzantine mosaics.
