'Murano and Burano Fish Meal'
Excursion to Murano and Burano Islands with Fish Lunch
The boat ride to the Islands was comfortable. The glass demo on Murano was fascinating. A bit more free time would have been useful. Burano with its colorful buildings is lovely. Even though the fish lunch was in a lovely cafe and was very tasty, it took all the time allotment on the Island so we had no time to snoop around.
Comfortable, scenic boat ride. Fascinating glass demo. Tasty lunch in a lovely Burano cafe.
Not much time on Murano after the demo. No time to explore Burano after the lunch.
