7. Venice, Murano, and Burano Excursion from Jesolo
Thanks to this guided excursion to Venice, Murano and Burano from Punta Sabbioni, you can discover the wonders of the Venetian lagoon by travelling on board a comfortable motorboat.
Starting from Punta Sabbioni, the boat will stop in San Marco for a few minutes before proceeding to Murano, an island renowned worldwide for its centuries-old tradition of blown glass. Accompanied by your expert guide, you will visit one of the still active kilns where you can attend a demonstration on glass working and where there will be the opportunity to buy handmade products. Afterward, you will have about an hour of free time during which you could taste some 'cicheto' or stroll through the craft shops and bridges on the canals.
Next, you will be heading to Burano, the island of lace and colored houses. Here you could visit the Lace Museum, have lunch in a classic buranella trattoria and sample some typical dishes like 'risotto di gò', or go to a pastry shop and taste a 'Bussolà' and an 'Esse', the two typical cakes from Burano. Alternatively, you can visit one of the most prestigious lace exhibitions, or discover the beauty of the area, such as the leaning bell tower or the house of Bepi Suà, the most colorful and particular of the whole island.
At this point, the tour will proceed to Venice, making a brief stop at Punta Sabbioni to disembark those wanting to end the tour here. Once you reach Venice, you will have free time to explore the city. You can visit St Mark's Square and its monuments, opt for a walk and an ice cream in Riva degli Schiavoni, or move to the Rialto area for a picture of the famous bridge or to do some shopping.
