You'll visit a famous glass-factory where you'll see an example of glass-blowing as well as visit the factory's showroom full of beautiful glassware that exemplify the high quality of glass produced on the Island. Enjoy a glass-blowing presentation and see traditional craftsmen at work, churning out exquisite glasswork.
After the showroom, explore the picturesque island with your private guide and visit historic attractions like the wonderful and unique San Donato's Church (a masterpiece of Venetian architecture), Murano's lighthouse and San Peter's Church (a jewel of the Italian Renaissance).
The tour ends in the centre of Venice. After touring the 2 islands, re-board the motor launch to cross the lagoon back to Venice.
