The first stop on our visit to the Venice islands lagoon will be to the Venice island of Murano, known throughout the world for its ancient tradition of glass making.
The excursion then continues to the Venice island of Burano, the bustling island famous for its colorful houses and the hand-crafted lace work, true works of art made of lace that can be purchased at local shops or street stalls.
Torcello, the largest center in the Venetian Lagoon before the birth of the Republic of Venice, will be the last stop of this fascinating Venice boat tour. This mystical island combines intense spirituality with many examples of great historical and artistic importance, such as the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, the legendary Devil's Bridge and Attila's throne.
