After your Burano tour, your guide will give you some free time along with recommendations on their favorite local spots for lunch.

Your next stop is the island of Torcello home to Venice's oldest church where you'll have free time to climb to the top of the spectacular dome. Then head to your final stop, a full Murano tour, including the jaw-dropping glass museum that showcases hand-made glassware dating back as far as the 13th century. If you want to purchase a piece, your guide can recommend some shops but there will never be any pressure to buy.

After your Murano tour, you'll hop back into your private boat and be back among the crowds in Central Venice by 5:00pm.
