Highlights of this tour

Your accessible Murano, Mazzorbo, and Burano tour, starts from Piazza Romale, where you meet your private guide. She takes you on an accessible boat to the first stop: Murano.
This tour avoids steep paths and the bridges without ramps, which makes it accessible for wheelchair or scooter users, and for travelers with reduced mobility.
We can arrange pick up from the cruise port by a tourist assistant, at an additional cost. She will guide you to the so-called people mover (tram line) to the center of Venice, where you meet your officially licensed guide for your private tour. At the end of the trip, your tourist assistant will help you make your way back to the cruise terminal again.
From Piazza Romale, you take the boat to Murano. Murano is the first island you encounter – after San Michele – and is known as the glass island. In 1291 all glassblowers from Venice were forced to move to Murano. Glass blowing was too high of a fire risk for the city, which at the time primarily consisted of wooden houses. Neither were they allowed to share the secret of how their art is made. Basically, they were living as prisoners for a long time. Nowadays, glass blowers are still active on the island, but luckily without the strict rules.
On the island of Murano, you visit a glass blowing company. Emerge yourself in the world of glass blowing, learn everything there is to know about the art, and buy some beautiful souvenirs. Besides a glass-blowing store, you visit the gorgeous church of St Maria and Donato. See the elegant facade and take a look inside.
The next stop on your accessible Murano, Mazzorbo, and Burano tour, is Mazzorbo island. This island is much quieter compared to the others surrounding Venice. Here, you find a large vineyard and colorful fisherman’s houses that you can reach by means of a wooden bridge.
Your tour continues to the last island on the list: Burano, away from Venice, away from the tourists. This is the island where the colorful houses, narrow canals, and the small bridges remind you of ‘small’ Venice. The world-famous lacework and the beautiful places on the island make it a perfect location to wander around and take in the beauty of your surroundings.
