The pearl of the Adriatic! No visit to Italy should be complete without a day at this amazing floating city.
A guided visit to discover the most romantic city in the world. Arrive by private boat to St Mark’s Square, the heart of the city where time seems to stand still.
You will leave Jesolo between 7.45am – 8.20am in the morning and at approx. 10 miles from Jesolo you'll arrive by coach at the end of the short peninsula of Cavallino where you'll leave the coach for a scenic cruise across the lagoon of Venice.
The cruise into Venice takes about 30 minutes. You'll arrive in Venice at 09:30am and enjoy the views of some of the most important island of the lagoon such as Lido, the beach of Venice and the place where the Film Festival is held.
Once in Venice you'll begin your programme which consists of a guided walking tour of Venice itself for about 30 / 45 mins and after which you will enjoy some free time to explore at leisure.
In the afternoon meet the boat at 14:45pm at the same harbour where you arrived and head for Murano. Famed as the home of Venice's glass-blowing industry, Murano's banks are full of furnaces and shops selling their products, and right in one of these furnaces you'll watch a performance of these manufactures observing a real glass master at work.
After seeing how they make a couple of items we have the time to visit the show room for those who want to buy a souvenir. There is also the possibility to have a look at the second oldest church built in the lagoon, which is very close to the glass factory.
Continue to Burano by boat. This will take about 30 minutes and once there you will enjoy a walk on the main narrow streets full of lace shops, which soon opens out to reveal the brightly painted houses of the village.
You will be able to shop around and see how the women of Burano make their lace,each of them specialising in one particular stitch, and buy the typical cake, a kind of hard biscuit eaten as dessert once dipped into white sparkling wine.
You will be back in Jesolo at around 19.00pm.
