The colours and shapes of Venice Lagoon make for a palatial ode to the city’s glorious past. Experience the beauty of the bay’s islands for yourself exclusively, as you adventure across lapping Italian waters on a private boat ride.
Begin the excursion with a hotel pick-up, after which you will set sail. Aboard a luxury motor yacht, discover the charms of Murano, Burano and Torcello. In the company of a professional guide, untold histories come to light. Your half day tour comprises 4 hours, or perhaps you’d like to extend to a full day tour. With a longer voyage comes additional stops to the quaint shores of San Francesco del deserto and San Lazzaro degli Armeni.
Follow your local escort through the coloured paths of Burano, where resident fishermen pout as they focus on their catch. Observe the stunning art of glassmaking, a long-adored tradition in the famed Murano factory. Molded, twisted, painted and blown, you think of the molten pieces still as you arrive at Torcello. The thousand-year-old church here is a myriad of Venetian-Byzantine minds, with gold interior mosaics that glisten in the light. Finally, sail back to the mainland under the shadow of twilight, as the quiet of evening sets in expelling a tranquil hush.
