The islands of the Venice lagoon

The truest and lesser-known Venice is revealed by visiting the wonders enshrined in the islands that dot the lagoon among myths, historical memories and breathtaking views. A true “walk on water” to discover the treasures that each island offers. You will admire the famous islands of Murano, with its historic glass factories and discover the ancient Art of Venetian glassmakers. This will be followed by a pleasant walk to the island of Burano, where you can admire the famous houses of a thousand colors and visit the ateliers where traditional lace is made. Last you will be taken to Torcello, the oldest settlement in the Lagoon, once a thriving commercial hub, where you can admire the Basilica dell ‘Assunta, dating back to the year 1000, and the splendid mosaics including the Last Judgment.

The day begins by departing from the Hotel Heureka with a private taxi at your disposal that will drive you and be at your disposal for the entire day and return you comfortably to the Hotel.

We suggest combining the tour of the islands with lunch at the famous restaurants located in Burano and Torcello such as Gatto Nero, Da Romano, Locanda Cipriani and Ponte del Diavolo or Venissa where you can enjoy the best of lagoon gastronomy.

Duration: Minimum 5 hours for the 3 islands
