"A quieter Venice among the Islands in the Lagoon" Islands of the lagoon Tip by whynotnorthcarolina

Islands of the lagoon, Venice: 31 reviews and 38 photos

Favorite thing: If visiting Venice, a trip to the various islands in the lagoon can provide a good overall basis for what Venice is like in terms of canals and life. The islands of Murano and Burano, the islands of lace and glass are provide a good microcosm of what the main sections of Venice are like. Both Murano (Glass) and Burano (lace) have canals, churches, and many of the typical elements one associates with Venice.

Fondest memory: The Island of Burano is a wonderful island with the houses being painted in a wide variety of colors. Although Burano is becoming a bit touristy, the island still allows for a bit more quiet than the main islands.
