Venice and the lagoon Islands – Murano, Burano and Torcello – worth well a visit! Do not miss the chance to discover the beauty of Venice, the coloured houses of Burano or to attend a demonstration of glass making in Murano! Even if you are traveling with kids or you have only one day free…
How to do? Join a tour organized by Turistica Penzo! On Monday and Thursday a full day trip to the islands and Venice will leave at 09:00 a.m. from the centre of Ca’Savio (about 1 km far from the campsite).
On board of a comfortable boat equipped with indoor and outdoor seats for 250 persons you will voyage in the lagoon and discover the beauty of these places. During the voyage the guide will give you some information about the places you will visit (do not be afraid: she speaks Italian, English, German and French!).
Curious to know what you will see? Here the programme:
1st STOP – BURANO
The boat stops close to church. From there you can reach the centre on foot in few minutes. You have about 1 hour to visit alone the island: we suggest you to walk along the main road until Piazza Galuppi – the most important square of the island – where you will find the Lace Museum, many shops if you want to buy some souvenirs (Burano is famous for the lace but also for the typical delicious biscuits called “Bussolai”) and several bars where to have a rest.
2nd STOP – TORCELLO
Here you have about 1 hour. On foot you can reach the centre of the island where the most important buildings are located only in 10 minutes. You will have time for a quick visit of Santa Maria Assunta Basilica or Santa Fosca Church
3rd STOP – MURANO
Murano is famous for the glass. Here, accompanied by the guide, you will visit a furnace and see how glass is made. You will have few time to buy some glass souvenirs at the shop located close to the furnace or to make a quick walk.
4th STOP – VENICE
You will reach the city in the afternoon and spend there a couple of hours. St. Mark Square, Doge’s Palace and the Basilica are only 10-15 minutes far on foot.
