PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Meet our Hostess in the lobby of your hotel for departure on the private motorboat for the Islands of the Lagoon. You will first visit Murano Island, very famous for its glassworks. Here, you can observe a real glassmaking shop as they work on hand-blown glass in real time. Continuing on to the North of the Lagoon, we will reach the picturesque island of Burano, characterized by strong contrasts of light and color, an island of fishermen and lace makers.

Finally, we will arrive to the nearby island of Torcello, where time seems to have stopped. Although there is hardly anyone left living here, which boasts rich vegetation typical of the lagoon, this island preserves the most ancient monument of the lagoon: the majestic Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta and the famous throne of Attila.
 

With the full day excursion, you can also visit San Francesco del Deserto situated south of Burano - according to tradition its monastery surrounded by cypress trees was founded by Saint Francis of Assisi and the two small cloisters still house a community of Friars.

 

San Lazzaro degli Armeni was used as a refuge for lepers during the 12th century. In 1717 the Serenissima entrusted the island to the Armenian noblemen who founded a Benedictine monastery, restored the 15th century church and created an Armenian printing house.
