Venice Archipelago Orientation Tour


You will meet your English-speaking guide at ship dock or at tender mooring; she will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board. She will introduce you to your English-speaking captain. They will guide you through the Venice Archipelago in order to experience a unique tour of Murano, Burano and Torcello islands.

A comfortable, safe and reliable boat will escort you in a unique tour, thanks to which, crossing the lagoon, you will enjoy wonderful views. You will get to know the history, art and folklore of the three major islands of the Venetian lagoon. A Murano, Burano, Torcello full day tour to get in touch with ancient traditions handed down unchanged for centuries.

Located in the north of the historic centre, Murano, Burano and Torcello are the most famous small islands to visit near Venice, faithful guardians of their culture and traditional handicrafts that have made them famous throughout the world. Murano, one of the major islands of the Venetian lagoon, stands out for its beautiful glass processing.  The oldest glassworks guard the secrets of ancient glass work that is handed down from generation to generation through the creation of real works of art made by hand. You will enjoy the Glass Factory visit where you will learn the Murano ancient glass tradition. Burano home to the famous organist and composer Baldassare Galuppi. The island is famous for its brightly colored houses and the lace work.  The last stop of this fascinating boat tour in Venice will be Torcello, the mysterious island where history, art and spirituality combine with a wild and uncontaminated nature. Site of an ancient settlement, Torcello was the largest commercial centre of the lagoon before the birth of the Republic of Venice. During the tour you can see the remains of its glorious past while enjoying a quiet walk in nature. During the tour, you will enjoy your lunch in a typical Italian Restaurant.

After the visit your Captain will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
