The next day, you will step out into the wondrous labyrinthine streets to visit the Rialto Market and St. Mark’s Square. In the afternoon, you will take an immersive tour of the local Venetian bacari, also referred to as wine bars that feature small plates of regional specialties alongside paired wines. Venture next to the islands of Murano and Burano for an in-depth exploration of the lagoon to enjoy a glassblowing class inside the rich tradition of Muran, and then wander along the quiet canals of Burano for a sample of the fishing village culture.

Upon your return to Venice, you will enjoy a private gondola ride along the hidden canals of the historical center.
