The islands of Venice

The islands of Venice

by davide

The visit of Venice should not be limited only to the city: its lagoon is home to some famous islands that are definitely worth a visit!

Murano, famous for its glass processing, is the biggest island of the lagoon. Here you can visit The Glass Museum at Palazzo Giustinian and the traditional furnace, with glass masters who explain step by step the process of creation of glass works.

Burano, where the colours of the houses are reflected into the water, is counted among the 10 most colourful places in the world. Walk through the narrow calli of the island and lose yourself in the little shops of typical local products: the art of lace has been for years the main manufacturing activity of the island!

Torcello: the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta has beautiful mosaics inside. Near the Basilica you can cross the famous Ponte del Diavolo, one of the two bridges of the island and, finally, a visit to the Provincial Museum of Torcello is interesting for all archaeology lovers with finds about the history of Venice and its islands.
