Venice Islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello
Although the whole of Venice lies on an archipelago, an ‘excursion to the islands’ generally means a half-day cruise on a boat to visit the islands of Murano, Torcello and Burano (photo), three charming, small islands, rich in history and tradition. Visitors love these islands, and there may be a risk of not finding a seat on the boat.
The island of Murano is also famous for its beautiful Glass Museum (Museo del Vetro in Italian) housed at the historical palazzo Giustinian featuring a vast collection of objet d’art made from Murano glass (click here to look for current exhibitions)
