One of the most beautiful locations in Venice is the Venetian Lagoon. On this lagoon, three stunning islands can be found, each containing a unique characteristic or feature that endears it to the arts, making them precious to the art-loving locals. With the company of a very informative local guide, you'll first head to Murano Island, which is known throughout the country for glass blowing and crafting. You'll get the chance to enter one of their glass factories and see masters hard at work in creating unique glass crafts and art. Then you will journey to Torcello Island, which holds the Byzantine Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, and the Church of Santa Fosca. Both these churches have a rich history. This is also the island that has endeared itself to Ernest Hemmingway, as it is where he wrote his novel “Across the River and Into the Trees”. Then, you'll head into Burano Island and see its lovely colorful houses. As you take a stroll through the streets, you'll catch sight of the local ladies knitting intricate lacework. You'll enjoy this journey over the water to these shining locations under the Mediterranean sunshine.
