Murano looks similar to Venice but much quieter. Charming architecture, canals, and bridges make it a relaxing place to stroll. Murano is a great living example of the central role that family and traditions play in a community and history. The history of glassblowing dates back to the Middle Ages and it is brought to us by masters whose fathers and grandfathers have been in this craft. Generations of glass-makers apprenticed their sons and daughters to make sure this precious art survived. Your children imagination run wild as they see artisans creating intricate handcrafted pieces.

Venice islands family day trip proceeds to Burano. This tiny island resembles a Venice in miniature. Stroll along Burano’s vibrant waterways and hidden courtyards. Burano is a picturesque fishing village with a dazzling array of candy colored small houses. Each house has different colors. Legend has it that the fishermen used this to their advantage as the colors helped them navigate their way home through the fog. Burano lace tradition dates back to 1500 but today you can still see old ladies that hand-made lace. Burano is also home to a bell tower that over the years has started to lean. It may not be the Leaning Tower of Pisa but children will enjoy catching a glimpse of this unique bell tower.
