Nous avons adoré cette expérience. Tout d’abord la balade en bateau taxi en acajou était géniale. nous avons pu profiter d’une bonne balade en bateau avant d’arriver sur l’île de Murano où nous avons pu découvrir le soufflage de verre, les enfants étaient ravis. nous sommes ensuite allés sur l’île de Burano pour visiter L île et ses maisons colorées ainsi que fabrication de dentelle. La Guide était française et super sympa , cela a faciliter grandement les echanges. nous recommandons vivement cette expérience
