By no doubt, you cannot leave Venice without visiting the three gems of the Venetian Lagoon: the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. Get ready to set out on a journey around the Venetian lagoon, enjoying breathtaking views over the St. Mark's Basin then heading towards the northern part of the Venetian lagoon, where the three islands are located.
Following a pickup from your hotel (if possible), the first stop of the tour will be Murano Island. Here an amazing glass art tradition developed. You will marvel in front of the manual skills of a master craftsman showing how a glass masterpiece comes to life. The next stop will be the fishermen island of Burano, famous for its colorful houses and peaceful atmospheres. This is a true paradise for photography lovers and for people who wish to explore a deep side of Venice, where local people still live their simple and ordinary life on a little island away from the crowds. According to a local legend, Burano got its rainbow appearance thanks to the fishermen that lived there, who used to paint their houses in bright and light colors so that they could find their way home while coming back from the sea. The island is also known for its rare artisan lace. The last stop of the tour will be the quiet and green island of Torcello, a little island suspended between mystical tales and the ruins of a glorious past not many people are aware of. Apart from the timeless atmospheres and green sceneries typical of the wild lagoon, not many people know that Torcello was the first islands of the Venetian lagoon to be populated, and was once a thriving center. Today only a few inhabitants live.
