Murano Glassblowing & Burano Lace Tour

Escape the crowds and chaos of Venice and catch a glimpse of what the city used to be - an island of artisans world-famous for their craft where traditional skills have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.

After meeting in a central Venice location we’ll start our tour with a short and comfortable boat ride to Murano. There’s a lot to see on the way and your guide will keep you entertained with a description of the sights as you pass them. Watch a craftsman in action as he goes about his daily business describing his process in English while he works. No staged presentations for us this is a real workaday studio and our experience here will be as authentic as it comes.

Afterwards you will have time to browse the huge collection of glass art here and wander the island on your own. Then it’s back on the boat and off to our next stop Burano. The tiny island is famous for its houses huddled tightly together along streets and canals and each one is painted a different colour.

Secret Venice by Night Tour with Gondola

Mysteries of the city

If you came to Venice with visions in mind of winding streets and tumbling houses where laundry swings out over canals then Secret Venice is the tour for you. Step away from the crowds and get off the beaten track with this original tour that explores the city's less seen and more romantic face on the other side of the Grand Canal.

Follow your expert guide through the quiet streets and piazzas of Venice and he will tell you about the city's myths and legends. You will hear stories about the cursed house whose owners have continuously met untimely and suspicious deaths, learn why music schools are called ‘conservatories’ and see the hospital where monks took orphans from the streets and trained them as nurses and musicians.
