Venice & the Veneto - Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands (Chapter)
A multitude of small islands dot the northern lagoon like shards of green glass splintering off the mainland. Here, the glass workshops of Murano have conjured writhing chandeliers, swirling goblets and gem-bright jewellery from their red-hot furnaces for centuries.

- bask in sun and culinary glory on the vineyard patio at Venissa or beneath the rose pergola at Locanda Cipriani
