An excursion to discover the North Lagoon and its most famous islands. 

An relaxing itinerary, away from the noise of the city to get in touch with nature to relive the birth of the first Venice.

Murano is the island made famous by the art of glass, an ancient origin which still preserves its traditions. Here you can admire the master glassblowers at work and follow the evolution of glass production by visiting the Museum of Glass.

Further north lies the picturesque Burano with the bright colours of the houses, still famous for its handmade lace, whose playing technique is inspired by the weaving of fishing nets.

And finally the nearby Torcello, where time seems to stand still. The island is now almost uninhabited (residents are little more than a dozen). Surrounded by a rich typical lagoon vegetation, the island preserves the oldest monument of the lagoon: the majestic Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, founded in 639 and rebuilt in 1008. Inside, the ancient and beautiful mosaics, including the famous depiction of the Last Judgment.

 

The tour requires a minimum of 5 hours.

 

The Museum of Glass in Murano is closed on Wednesdays.
