Full description:
Your tour begins with a visit to a traditional Italian glass factory on the island of Murano, home to a centuries-old tradition of glass making. Once an exclusive product of Venice, glass production moved to Murano in 1291 when furnaces were banned from the city for fire prevention. The artisans have developed a unique style and world-famous reputation for producing blown glass. Your guide will lead you to one of the factories where you will have the opportunity to observe the Maestri at work during a glass blowing demonstration. At the conclusion of the demonstration, there will be an opportunity to browse the enticing display rooms where items may also be purchased.

You will then proceed by boat to Burano Island, and step ashore for a visit to this charming island, well known for lace making, fishing, and boat building. While describing the island, your guide will lead you on a stroll through the narrow streets cheerfully decorated with brightly painted houses. At the conclusion of your tour, you will have the opportunity to purchase lace as you pass the vendors lining the path near Piazza Galuppi,
