Description

Three-Island boat tours from Venice departs at either 9.30 a.m. or 2.30 pm daily during summer (2.00pm only during winter). These excursions depart from San Marco in the centre of Venice to the three islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.

Murano is the most famous of the Venetian Islands, and the most visited courtesy of the famous glass-works that produce the popular "Murano Glass". The people of Venice have been making crystal and glass since the 10th Century, when the Venetian merchants brought back the secrets of production from the East. During the three-island boat tours from Venice visit a celebrated glass factory and see a glass-blowing demonstration

The Island of Burano is the most picturesque of Venetian Islands of the Lagoon. Famous for its lace-making industry, the pretty fishing village has its streets and canals lined by pastel coloured houses and is our second stop on three-island boat tours from Venice

Once the commercial capital of Venice, nowadays Torcello boasts a population of only 60 people. Deserted, the island boasts the Venetian-Byzantine Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta founded in the 7th Century was Venice 's first cathedral. These Venice boat tours are operated by the Serenissima company, and it's a large multi-lingual group tour, and you will have approximately 35 - 40 minutes on each island as part of a 3.5 hour tour

Meeting Point

Tour departs from Riva degli Schiavoni, near the Hotel Danieli. Directions from Saint Mark's Square: walk towards the waterfront, after the two high colums turn left, cross
over a small bridge called "Ponte della Paglia", and the dock is located on the left in front of the Hotel Danieli. You will find a small Yellow Wooden stand where you will need to present your voucher.
NB : The Boat departs at the exact specified time it is highly recommended to arrive 10 minutes prior to start of the tour - It is compulsory to bring your voucher

Grand Canal Boat Tour, 28th September, 2012
Our tour was WONDERFUL. Our water taxi driver, whose name I forget, was not only a skillful driver, going under low bridges on the minor canals, but was able to help me (I use a cane) get into a rocking boat - not an easy task. And our guide, Christina, was exceptionally good - knowledgeable, helpful, friendly. We had a great time and it was well worth the cost. I've recommended this tour to friends going to Venice soon.

Grand Canal Boat Tour, 11th October, 2008
I am sending this note to thank you and compliment your staff on a couple of tours taken during our recent stay in Italy. My daughter and I were on a day tour of Rome, Sunday, October 5. Our guide was delightful and informative , she was so polite and kind and wanted to make sure we saw and understood every part of our tour. I thought Roberto exhibited exceptional driving skills, on the narrow streets in some parts of the city. He was always waiting for us at the prearranged spot and ready to open doors and escort us in and out of the car. Again, thank you for the wonderful services provided. Another guide we thoroughly enjoyed was Christina and the water taxi driver (I'm sorry I do not remember his name). We were in Venice on October 11. Christina was fun and so full of knowledge and obvious pride and love of her city. Our water taxi driver was attentive, and we felt we had a wonderful introduction to your beautiful city. All the staff during our visit to Italy, using your services contracted through Destination Europe were kind and gracious. We wanted to let you know of the exceptional service of two of your guides. Thank you, for sharing your country with some wonderful staff.
