For a Personalized Travel Plan

An appreciation for the ancient art of glassblowing; live demonstration and do it yourself!
Next stop is tiny Burano, famous for its lace making and for the colorful houses crammed along its canals (so painted by fishermen who wanted to spot their homes from a distance). Visit a small building where women sit stitching lace the old-fashioned way, just as their mothers and grandmothers did before them. After this introduction to the island, take your time to admire delicate lace in the museum, shop for keepsakes or wind your way along the kaleidoscopic streets.

Burano is by far the most photogenic spot in Venice
Euganean Hills & Wine Tasting Leave Venice for a while and enter the fascinating backcountry! Discover the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills, a natural area dotted with small villages, vineyards and cute typical “osterie”. You will visit a family-owned wine cellar and drink its sparkling wines: an extraordinary experience to meet local people and taste genuine products. Experience the amazing ancient village of the Poet Petrarca, unchanged since the 14th  century.
