The Venetian Lagoon: Murano, Burano and Torcello

Excursion in Venice

Duration : a minimum of 4 hours is required Languages:

An extremely relaxing tour, which combines many different characteristics of Venice: the natural beauty, craftsmanship, a genuine fisherman village atmosphere and the history of the earliest days.

Burano is the most cheerful and one of the most populous of the lagoon islands. Its brightly painted houses give it the air of an Italian opera set, while the success of its most important industries, lace making, fishing and boat building, account for the well-being of its people.

Murano is the famous island of glassmaking, a traditional activity that still preserves the ancient techniques of the past.

Torcello can be considered the “Mother of Venice” and was settled between the 5th and 7thC by the fist waves of refugees from the Barbarian invasion on the Mainland. Today preserves the most ancient monument of the lagoon: the solemn Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, founded in 639 and rebuilt in 1008, decorated with impressive Byzantine mosaics.

Very enjoyable and relaxing!

My husband persuaded me to visit islands. I was not going I must say:)But still - why not to attempt? We contacted with Cinzia and booked the tour in the Venitian Lagoon. Now, when almost a year passed I think - visiting Venice, you NEED to visit islands! Murano, Burano and Torcello are wonderful! Cinzia told and sohwed us so many interesting! I didn't expect that I would be delighted with glassmaking, fishing, boats, everything! it's really another world:)
