The traditional glassblowing of Murano!  The amazing colors of Burano's houses!  The history and art of Torcello!  Explore the uniqueness of each of the islands on board a Gran Turismo motor boat. 

This small group cruise in the Venetian Lagoon is an educational and enjoyable experience, operated by a highly-qualified crew and commentated by a specialized tour guide. 
 
First, you'll sail past the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th century Benedectine church designed by Andrea Palladio, the public Gardens, the tip of Sant'Elena, and the famous Lido beach resort.  Arriving at Murano, known throughout the world for its glass manufacturing industry, you'll visit a furnace to see specialty glass products being made.
 
The tour will then continue towards Burano, the island famous for its lace making and for the brightly colored fishermens’ houses.  Taking a short walk along a scenic green lane, you'll reach the main square which features San Martino’s Church and the island's famous leaning tower.
 
Next, you'll reach the quiet and sparsely populated island of Torcello, the first center of civilization in the estuary.  Only the Cathedral of “Santa Maria Assunta” with its magnificent mosaics and the church of “Santa Fosca” remain as testimony of its former glory.
