Venice three-Island boat tours 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 Murano 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

It was a great tour.
I wish we spent more time on Burano island. Torcello island wasn't interesting. Better to spend the time on Murano and Burano islands.

We loved the three island boat tour to Murano, Burano and Torcello. The length of the tour was good as well, although we would have loved to spend more time on each of the islands to explore and shop. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Venice, and we would definitely do it again. Thank you!
