TOUR ITINERARY

Your private Burano, Mazzorbo & Wine Tasting Tour will take you on a charming journey to discover two treasures of the Venice Lagoon: Burano and Mazzorbo. Your guide will meet you at your accommodation in Venice to take you on a four hour excursion.

The journey will start immediately while you enjoy the delightful views from your private boat.

Your first stop will be the unique Burano. Your guide will unveil the beauty of this small island in front of your eyes guiding you through its enchanting little streets. The island is internationally well-known for its specialty: Burano lace. Burano’s colorful houses are also a reason of popularity all around the world! The legend says that fishermen chose to paint the buildings with brilliant colors in order to be able to see them from the sea. In reality this was a practical way to delimit the properties. Today Burano is a marvelous island, a heaven that enchants the tourists, not only for the historical themes, but for its charm, for the unreal silence of its mornings, for the happy bawling, and for the peculiar local dialect, that has the characteristic to lengthen, almost to double, the consonants.

At the end of the Burano’s tour get ready to continue your journey through the enchanting Venetian Lagoon! A quick boat drive will introduce you to the hidden gem of Mazzorbo, still not touch by mass tourism. The city was found during the barbarian invasion and its name means literally great city; this small town was in fact once inhabited by thousands of people. However following the decline of the nearby island of Torcello, during the 10th century, Mazzorbo slowly lost importance and became a getaway for the rich Venetians. The unique Santa Caterina Monastery is the perfect example of the golden age of this little gem. The original church was built in 783, the one that we can admire today is a 13th century building. The church’s bell is one of the oldest of the entire lagoon. You will visit this little fishermen village where you will experience how the locals live!

Mazzorbo is also house of the Venissa Winery where you will try the famous Veneto’s wine! Your tour in fact will continue with the visit of the Wine Estate with its vineyards and cellars. You will taste both the Venissa Red Wine and the famous Venissa White Wine. The white wine is made by a unique grape the Dorona an autochthon grape once loved by the Doges! This Golden Grape grow only here and it was forgotten and almost lost until 2007 when the production started again.

At the end of your degustation your guide will return you to your accommodation in Venice.

TOUR ITINERARY

Meet your driver to begin your private, full day excursion to the awe-inspiring Dolomite Mountains.

The Dolomites, as they are more commonly referred, are a mountain range in the northern region of Italy, part of the Eastern Alps. Their name stems from the minerals that compose it, which give the mountains a light pink and coral color when the sun sets.

Your first stop will be Misurina, passing via the scenic Auronzo di Cadore (alt. 1759m / 5770ft). There, you will be able to admire Lake of Misurina, the largest natural basin of the Cadore region. Walking around the lake, you will be able to spot several summits: to the north are the “Tre Cime di Lavaredo”, to the east the “Cadini”, and to the south the “Marmarole” and the “Srapiss”. After your visit to Misurina, you will continue to Cortina via the “Passo Tre Croci” (1805m).

Cortina, the capital of the Dolomites, is a winter sports and summer resort with an international reputation. Set in the heart of the Dolomites at an altitude of 1210m / 4000ft, Cortina is one of the best spots to enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery. While you are here, we suggest an excursion to the “Tofana di Mezzo”, the third highest peak in the Dolomites. It is accessible by a cable car which climbs to 3244m / 10 643ft and offers a superb panorama over the surrounding mountains. While in Cortina, you will have some time to get lunch. If you wish, the driver can suggest a restaurant.

After lunch you leave Cortina to drive along the “Passo Giau” where you will reach an altitude of 2233m/7382ft. From this height, you will have a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. On the opposite side of the steep road, you will continue to Selva di Cadore, Zoldo Alto and Longarone.

At the end of the excursion, you will be on the highway, bound back for Venice.

The slow pace will allow you to discover and enjoy the most important monuments of this once powerful maritime republic.
