NCL Tour left the cruise ship in a large boat and past St Mark's Square, to Murano Island (45 minutes) where all the kilns are located for the glass making companies. They had to be located away from Venice, because of the danger from fires centuries ago. Got to see a glass blowing demonstration, where a man made a multi colored vase. There are factories where you can buy simple to very elite glass objects. Didn't buy anything here, what we liked was very expensive. Next stop Burano Island (30 minutes more) where they make lace items by hand. It is a colorful Island with the brightly colored houses. They have a leaning church tower there. Watch where you walk on both Islands, there are canals with over head bridges. You could step off into the canals very easily, if you don't pay attention where you are walking. My wife bought some beautiful lace book marks to take back to her church sewing group. Then hop on boat (90 minutes) back to cruise ship. Read Less
