Sensational guide

A normal tour of the Doge's Palace would pale into insignificance against this. make sure to check where you need to meet, the ticket office and security staff are particularly unhelpful when it comes to telling you where to wait.

Burano is one of the cutest city

We had a memorial trip to the islands of Murano and Burano on a very hot July afternoon. The guide was very informative and interesting on the way over. The factory at Murano was like an art gallery, packed with beautiful pieces, none of which we could afford.

Only for your small group, alone in that giant cathedral, supported by an excellent guide.

The person in charge explains very well.
