Day 1

Venice is an open-air museum, and every single corner of the city is filled with art. Marble churches, magnificent palaces, stuccoes, collections of thousands of sculptures, paintings, archaeological discoveries, and antique books. It’s impossible not to fall in love with it!

Day 2

Guided tour in Venice

Start a private 3-hour tour with your English-speaking guide to explore the must-see monuments of Venice, including Saint Mark Square, the Basilica, and the Rialto Bridge. But this tour is not just about the well-known landmarks, it also includes a visit to the hidden gems of art found in tiny churches throughout the city. Your guide will take you on a journey of discovery, showing you the unexpected beauty of Venice that so often goes unnoticed. After the tour, spend the rest of your day wandering through the different sestrieri: Cannaregio, Castello, Santa Croce, San Polo, San Marco, and Dorsoduro. Stop for an aperitif – “spritz and cicchetti”, small snacks served in the “bacari” (traditional bars), and do not miss Venice views at night, a sight for sore eyes!

Day 3

Murano & Burano

Murano and Burano are the two islands in the lagoon that most preserve Venetian traditions, and visiting them is like stepping into the past.
Murano is famous all over the world for its glass-blowing tradition which is still handed down to us and it is possible to admire it in one of the remaining factories on the island. This is definitely a memorable experience!
Burano is the most colorful in the world! It’s also one of the loveliest islands of Venice and will make you fall in love with its brightly colored little houses and its ancient tradition of lace, still stitched by the patient and expert local embroiderers.
