Venice and its islands
Discover the islands of the Venetian lagoon and experience this location's timeless atmosphere thanks to the suggestive excursion.
VENice - LA SERENISSIMA
We recommend that you visit Venice, the most important city and, at the same time, the capital of Veneto. It is the third most-visited city in Italy after Rome and Florence. Venice and its lagoons have been on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1987. For a century, the old city's economic structure has been unilaterally tailored towards tourism, while the industrial activity has mainly been concentrated around Mestre and Marghera on the western mainland. The pulsating heart of the city is Piazza San Marco with its wonderful basilica.
BURANO, TORCELLO & MURANO
Burano is a wonderful island full of colourful houses that offer an unforgettable scenario and is known throughout the entire world for its traditional, top-quality art. They are true works of art that can be sold in characteristic shops or stands on the street. Be sure to try the "Bussolai” too, the typical biscuit from Burano.
Torcello was the centre of the Venetian lagoon until the birth of the Republic of Venice. Visit the basilica Santa Maria Assunta, the legendary "Ponte del Diavolo" bridge and the throne of Attila.
Murano Island is famous throughout the entire world for its antique tradition of glass blowing. In addition to a general visit of the island, there is also the option of visiting a glassworks where you can see the glass blowers do their artistic work.
