Venice Boat tour Excursion Reviews

There is no better way to navigate the floating beauty of Venice than by water—don't miss an opportunity to take a guided boat tour of the city.
Just took us to Murano and Burano Islands.
Sail Date: August 2018
Just took us to Murano and Burano Islands. That's how you get around here. There is a lot of boat traffic. Small boats, ferries carrying cars & large trucks, water taxis, yachts, riverboat cruises, etc.

A little disappointed as the weather was overcast and threatened rain. To enjoy this trip you had to be outside and space was limited if you stayed inside the trip would have been a total waste of money.

Its a bit of trip from the pier to downtown so we took the ship's excursion. We left directly from the ship pier by boat and visited the Murano Glass works (if you get out without buying let me know!) followed by a gondola ride. Quintessential Venice. Later, San Marco square and the Peggy Guggenheim Musuem. We opted to go back to the ship on our own- an 8 euro boat ride to the dock. Read Less
