Visiting the Venice Lagoon Islands

Visiting the lagoon of Venice is definitely an experience that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime.

Being a fairly large area, we prefer to focus your attention on the so-called Northern Lagoon, which includes the wonderful Venice and its beautiful islands: Murano, Burano, Torcello, Mazzorbo and Sant'Erasmo.

Organizing your one day trip to Burano is certainly a good starting point to include in your trip the other islands of the lagoon.
Imagine you and your friends on a boat, in a sunny day, traveling to places full of charm: Burano with its colorful houses, once owned by fishermen, now maintained as they are by the island's inhabitants, with a meticulousness to details that leaves nothing to chance. Why not? Maybe even turned into handicraft shops of lace or "lume" glass.

If you are fond of design and artistic glass, a visit to Murano worth a look. There are several organized tours to Murano which include the classic guided tour in a glass factory, a bit 'as with the demonstration of lacemaking in Burano.

Are you lovers of peace and bucolic atmosphere? Are you curious about the fact that even on these small islands, surrounded by saltwater, can grow vegetables, fruit trees and vineyards?
Then you'll have to visit Sant'Erasmo and Mazzorbo. These two islands have several things in common: they have an elongated shape, a large part of their surface is cultivated and they are the home of the purple artichoke, a true refinement.
Recently, the Dorona grape is attracting a lot of attention: it's a variety that has developed a particular resistance to salt in the soil and for this reason was very popular during the Serenissima Republic.

Of course such a varied archipelago can only be the result of a long evolution over the centuries and it's natural that history has left its marks.

Torcello is undoubtedly the island which more than any other carries the indelible mark of the presence of the populations in the Venetian Laggon. Visit Torcello means to come back in the Middle Ages, at the time of the Attila's invasions, which pushed the inhabitants of Altino to settle in these areas. Places that were unhealthy at the times, but a real stronghold against invaders.

In short, no matter how far is your home from the Venice's North Lagoon, or if you are spending your vacation at the littorale of Cavallino-Treporti, in Jesolo or in Caorle, for example in a camping.
The important thing is that you plan to visit Burano from Jesolo or that you book your excursion to the Venice islands from Punta Sabbioni, Cavallino-Treporti or Caorle.
