Accessible Venetian Islands Tour

Torcello is famous for being the first island to be settled in the Venetian Lagoon: the inhabitants of Altino moved here during the 5th and 6th century. Its cathedral was built around 1000 BC, and it preserves a wonderful mosaic, which depicts the Last Judgment, very similar to those found in the Baptistery of Florence.

However, today, the island is known as a relaxing place, since it only hosts around 20 residents. Visiting this place will feel like living in a completely different dimension.

Burano, unlike Torcello, hosts about 3000 people. It is mostly known for its handmade lace and biscuits, called bussolai, but also for the lively colorful houses that residents said they painted with different colors, to make them recognizable to the fishermen who came back home when it was foggy.

Murano is known worldwide, thanks to the production of artistic glass blowing. Initially, the production took place in Venice, but at the time, the buildings were made of wood, and often the fire of the kilns accidentally caused numerous fires. This way, the republic had to move the seat of the furnaces to this island, in which stands the Church of Santa Maria and Donato, known for its paintings by Bellini and Veronese. In addition, on the island you can visit the Glass Museum, which contains a large collection of very old glass.
