Day 2
Venice | Venice

Today enjoy a half-day exploration of the Grand Canal and Murano.  Begin your day with a cruise on a private boat along the Grand Canal, see the city as it was made to be seen – from the water. Your private guide will pick you up at the hotel with your boat and driver.  Become reacquainted with the Grand Canal or Canallazzo, its Venetian nickname, as you see Venice as it was during the height of the Serenissima Republic.

After an hour or so, cross the lagoon to the island of Murano, home to Venice’s distinguished glass artisans. It is not known exactly when the art of glass making began, but we know that it was confined to Murano by a Venetian law in 1291. Murano glass is recognized worldwide for its craftsmanship and originality. This glass is made by hand with a team of artisans known as a “piazza” working around the glass master who is seated in his “scagno” from which he directs and works the glass with his team.  You will have appointments in the private studios of esteemed glass masters to see them work with their team.  Your water taxi will take you back to Venice after this excursion.
