LAGOON ISLANDS
Visit a part of Venice most tourists never see!


Most tourists never get a chance to visit Venice's Lagoon Islands.  But if you take a vaporetti water bus, you can spend a comfortable day enjoying these islands away from the hordes of tourists crawling through Venice's old city.

Murano
All Venetian glass has been made on the island of Murano since 1291, when the fires were moved away from the city as a fire precaution.  Visit the Glass Museum to see how the skill of glass blowing has evolved over the centuries.

Burano
Burano is old Venice without the crowds.  The island a fishing community with colorful canalside houses, narrow streets and sun-splashed squares.  Lace is also a famed product of this community and there is even a Lace-Making School on the island.
