Itinerary:

The itinerary shown below is valid even with departure at 10.30 from Punta Sabbioni.

Departure from Punta Sabbioni (9:30 AM special shuttle)

Get on board Venetiana from Punta Sabbioni and enjoy the beauties of the lagoon while sailing. You will skirt the islands of Sant’Erasmo and Vignole with their crops and vineyards and admire the coast of Cavallino Treporti which for more than 30 years has been part of UNESCO heritage together with the entire Venice lagoon.

Before arriving in San Marco you will pass by one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Europe, you will discover Shakespeare's obsession with Venice and admire Riva degli Schiavoni, whose name recalls the strongest and most loyal soldiers to the Serenissima and which today is one of the most beautiful and classic Venetian walks.

 

Arrival in Venice San Marco Free sightseeing in Venice city center (2 hours)

After about half an hour of navigation, the shuttle will take you to San Marco where you can freely visit the heart of the city. St. Mark's Square in Venice certainly needs no introduction! Here all the main buildings of the city stand out, including the St. Mark Basilica and Bell Tower, but also the Procuratie (now home to the Correr Museum), once the seat of the procurators of San Marco. Under the arcades there are jewelers and prestigious cafes, including the historic Caffè Florian, opened in 1720, frequented by intellectuals and socialites such as Giacomo Casanova and Coco Chanel.

To discover all the best of Venice on foot, we recommend that you follow our Venice Unmissable Short Tour lasting 30 minutes.

Departure from Venice San Marco (12 AM)

Get back aboard Venetiana from San Marco and enjoy the beauties of Venice while sailing.
From San Marco you will sail alongside the San Giorgio Island with the basilica of the same name designed by Palladio and run along Riva degli Schiavoni with world-famous famous luxury hotels. You will admire the Biennale gardens and then you will immerse yourself in the lagoon landscape gliding alongside the islands of Certosa and Vignole.

Arrival in Murano: visit to the glass factory and walking tour (2 hours)

Get off in Murano, the archipelago of the Venetian lagoon north-east of Venice, made up of seven islands. Murano is renowned for glass working. The history of Murano glass begins in 1291, when by order of the Serenissima, all the glass masters of Venice had to move to the islands, since the furnaces of the workshops often caused fires in the city. Even today, Murano glass is produced in an artisanal way.

To discover the island, we recommend that you follow our Murano walking tour lasting about an hour, during which you can watch the demonstration of a master glassmaker inside a real furnace. If you visit Venice in the morning you can also have lunch on the island.

Departure from Murano (13:30)

Leave the Murano jetty behind to sail towards the island of Burano in the middle of the most famous lagoon in the world. Let yourself be captivated by the wonderful lagoon eco-system, the rich fauna and its many islands, including the "sandbanks", islets that emerge from the water depending on the tide.

Arrival in Burano: Free sightseeing and Walking tour (1 hour)

Burano: the island of a thousand colors, the pearl of the lagoon. An ancient fishing village inhabited since the fifth century, Burano is characterized by colorful houses that create a fairytale landscape. The island is also famous for lace production, an artisan craft dating back to 1500 which is still famous throughout the world for the quality of the embroidery.

The route will allow you to visit historical places such as the House of Remigio Barbaro, a famous local sculptor, or the Church of San Martino Vescovo and magical places such as the House of Bepi Suà: a very colorful house, a true manifesto of the island of Burano and the residents' taste for color. Finally, taste the famous Bussolà: biscuits that were traditionally made by the fishermen's wives for long fishing trips. Don't eat too many because they are extremely caloric!

Departure from Burano to Punta Sabbioni (3:25 PM)

If you still have energy, you can also stop for a visit to the island of Burano. The stretch of navigation that connects Burano to Punta Sabbioni will make you discover stories of pirates and redemptions, the origins of the historical regatta and everything you need to know and see about the MOSE marine barriers.
