An excursion of 6 hours and 30 minutes to discover Burano, Torcello and Murano.
With the time needed to eat in Burano!

Burano is certainly the most picturesque of the islands of the Lagoon thanks to the brightly colored houses outside of which, even today, fishermen put away their fishing nets and women embroider the famous lace.

Torcello is the most famous of the islands of the Upper Lagoon. When in the fifth century the Huns, led by Attila, invaded Altino, its inhabitants also took refuge here, then after the danger returned to the city.

Murano is the largest of the islands of the Lagoon. Founded by the fugitives of Altino, at the time of the Longobard invasions also the population of Oderzo took refuge there. The fame of the island is however linked to the famous art of glassmaking and during the visit to the island a stop at the furnaces and a must where a master glassmaker will make a demonstration of the processing (always explained) of glass is blown and molded. Don't miss the glassmaking museum and the Church of S.S. Maria e Donato, a masterpiece of Venetian-Byzantine art.
