This Venice Private Full Day Boat Cruise in Venice, Murano and Burano Excursion is the perfect option for those who want to see the best of the best. Your boat will take you to Venice and a cruise of the Grand Canal. Your private guide will show you the highlights and sights. Then on to the Island of Burano to shop and have lunch or to the island of Murano where you’ll visit a glassmaking workshop.

You’ll meet your English-speaking local guide and your private captain at your Venice cruise ship port and board your private boat there. The boat holds a maximum of 12 passengers but to ensure ample room only you and up to 7 of your family and friends will be on this fun adventure.  You’ll cruise the Grand Canal, one of the major water-traffic canals in the city, and finish in St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco), the principal public square of Venice. With this private excursion, you receive a Skip the Line entrance pass so you can have a look into St. Mark’s Basilica, the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice and one of the best-known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture. This church is resplendent with mosaics and marble.

As you continue walking, you'll see the Doge’s Palace, built in the Venetian Gothic style and now a museum. It was erected in the fourteenth century for the rulers of Venice to maintain control over their subjects in the area.  A covered bridge, Bridge of Sighs, takes you into the New Prison. The bridge got its name from the sighs of prisoners who got their last look at freedom while walking from the courtroom to their cell. You’ll have 2 hours to explore the buildings and the Square.

You have a choice to visit both the islands of Burano and Murano briefly or choose one or the other only. If you choose only one you’ll have about 4 hours on that island. The private boat trip to Burano is about 35 minutes. This island is known for its picturesque charm, brightly colored fishermen's houses and numerous restaurants serving fresh seafood.   Here you can enjoy a local lunch, wander through the square and shop for local crafts such as locally-made lace items and clothing. See the exhibits of lace-making at The Museo del Merletto.

The captain can also take you to the island of Murano, famous for its glass-making. You’ll be able to walk the tiny island and visit a glass-making workshop and the Murano Glass Museum for a history of glass. If you’re choosing to see this island only you are welcome to purchase your own lunch here.

When your private excursion of Venice, Burano, and Murano is complete, you’ll be taken back on your private boat directly to your Venice cruise ship with lots of time before you set sail again. We think the charm of Venice will be with you for years to come.

Best decision we've made as a family. We really enjoyed visiting so enchanting places. I really liked St. Mark’s Basilica, the guide helped us to skip the line to get the tickets.

We recommend this trip 100%. My friends and I had a super time exploring the islands of Murano and Burano. The tour was only the 7 of us, and private is the way to go. The guide took us to visit the islands and we watched the glass and lace being made, and also gave us some time to explore the two islands.
