Venice islands tour and local dishes
A Venice islands tour is the best way to get to know this amazing city. Board a private Grand Canal boat tour, travel along what has been described as “the most beautiful avenue in the world”, and enjoy traditional Venetian dishes at the famous trattoria al Gatto Nero in Burano.
What you’ll do
- Take a Venice islands tour with guide
- Visit Murano island and its famous glassworks
- Immerse yourself in the colours of Burano island
- Have lunch at the trattoria al Gatto Nero and enjoy authentic Venetian cuisine
What to expect
Where will the Venice islands tour take you? Our crew will take you through the most beautiful corners of the city, tell you the legends and history of Venice, show you the monuments, architectural masterpieces, art and tell you about the lives of those who created or enjoyed it – artists, nobles, courtiers and other inhabitants of the Venetian lagoon.
For a better insight into Venetian culture, we will take you to visit the famous island of Murano. The island has always been known throughout the world for its production of Murano blown glass: it is worth seeing in the Murano glassworks the mastery of blowing and shaping glass, which has a history as long as the city itself.
The next stop on the Venice islands tour is the adjacent island of Burano, which is clearly visible from afar for its brightly painted buildings. You will have some time to stroll around Burano and be enraptured by the beauty of this Venetian island, meet the locals, enjoy a cup of coffee and take some unforgettable photos.
3. Trattoria al Gatto Nero
The next stop on our Venice islands tour is the trattoria al Gatto Nero, one of the most famous typical Venetian taverns in the entire lagoon. The trattoria in Venice is famous for its typical dishes and is considered the creator of a more authentic Venetian cuisine than any other typical dish you might taste in other Venetian osterias. Meet Ruggero, the charismatic and friendly chef, and his son Massimiliano for an unforgettable lunch in Venice!
Finally, through minor and secret routes along the Grand Canal, you will see the most famous and lively districts of Venice, reaching St Mark’s Square, the highlight of our Venice islands tour.
