Visit the majestic islands of the northern lagoon by boat – Murano, Torcello and Burano. Your guide will take you first to Murano where you will see a glassblowing demonstration at one of the only handful of workshops working today. Continue on to Torcello where you will visit the 1,000-year-old basilica and view its incredible Byzantine mosaics. Break for lunch at Torcello and then head to Burano, a multicolored shot of pastel-colored houses and shimmering canals. Then sample their famous cookies and enjoy a demonstration of their world-renowned lace. Finish the evening with a special after-hours private visit to the spectacular Basilica of Saint Mark’s for an exclusive viewing of the splendorous Pala d’Oro.
