This excursion will give you the chance to visit the most beautiful lagoon islands with a morning tour from Venice Santa Lucia! An unforgettable islands tour from Venice train station, ideal for those who reach the historic centre by train and want to spend half a day exploring Murano and Burano.

The tour is designed for those who wish to immerse themselves in the untouched charm of the Murano and Burano Islands, relying on convenient private transfers, explanations of the places visited and a dedicated and helpful staff who will be at your disposal for the duration of the excursion.

You can immerse yourself in the most authentic soul of the Lagoon... Murano and Burano are the real jewels of the Venetian lagoon, where time seems to have been suspended between colourful houses, craft shops and fishing boats.

The convenient departure of the lagoon tour from Venice Santa Lucia offers the possibility to explore the islands setting off directly from the railway station, a particularly convenient solution for those who reach the city for a day by train. In addition, the limited duration of the tour will allow you to devote time to explore Venice as well: the tour will end near Saint Mark's Square, the ideal starting point to discover the Serenissima. You can divide the afternoon between the most famous monuments, shopping and eating, and trying the local delicatessen in one of the typical restaurants of the historic centre. 

A polite and helpful staff will welcome you upon your arrival and then accompany you aboard the boat and stay at your disposal for the rest of the excursion. A tour leader is expected to be present only on Saturdays and Sundays; from Monday to Friday explanations will take place via audio recordings. 

Thanks to this fascinating experience, the islands of Venice will no longer hide any secrets from you! The itinerary combines visits and free time to discover the best of both islands: in Murano you can visit a famous glass factory, while in Burano the stop is completely at your discretion... You can then visit the island in autonomy to admire the site’s beauties and get in touch with the ancient local atmosphere.
