The best parts of Venice are always the secret and inespected ones. In my opinion in fact, "traveling" means "discovering". Travelers should therefore feel a constant urge to learn new things and see ... "more". In Venice, they would try to discover the whole city and live it at fullest. They would have to look at customs and traditions, support the arts and crafts, taste the local food ... in short, they would have fun. And in doing so, but also the emotions felt (and the eyes of those who led them). I would like to show you off-the-beaten-path, discovering the mysterious, the hidden corners of Venice which is not JUST St. Mark's Square: it's ALSO St. Mark's Square . I look forward to meeting you! Nadia, your "Friend in Venice"

With this tour, you’ll set out from a pier conveniently located near St. Mark’s square to visit the islands of Murano and Burano. You’ll tour a glass factory and watch a glass blowing artist in action in Murano, and enjoy free time strolling the colorful canals and browsing the artisan shops of Burano.

* A traveler said: "I liked that the tour was well organized and offered the chance to see a bit of every island. We had a short demonstration of Murano glass work and then we were free to visit the islands. Personally I was happy with what I got for the price payed - it would have been a hassle to do this trip by myself with the vaporetto. For those who want to stay more on each island, I would recommend one island per day, otherwise it can get extremely long and tiring."

* A traveler said: "This was a great tour of the Jewish ghetto area.Lucia, the guide, was very knowledgable and pointed out things we would not have noticed had we just wondered around on our own. She spoke English well and was able to make the tour interesting. Afterwards she took us to a local place which had really good coffee. She also took us to a couple of shops we wanted to visit. Good communication after booking about where to meet and Lucia also suggested changing the time slightly to avoid the carnival crowds, which was helpful. I would highly recommend this tour with Lucia as the guide."
