This is the Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Venice & the Veneto guidebook.

A multitude of islands dot the northern lagoon like shards of green glass splintering off the mainland. The northernmost islands are sleepy, with only pretty Burano attracting significant tourists. Murano’s famous glass workshops continue to conjure magic from their red-hot furnac-es.

  • engage with visions of angels, saints and dastardly demons within the golden glow of an-cient mosaics in Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta, the lagoon’s oldest church
  • maps
  • witness artistry in action at Murano’s glass-blowing showrooms, explore glass-making his-tory at the Museo del Vetro, and shop for a unique memento
  • transport
  • watch colourful houses shimmer with delight at their own reflections in Burano’s canals, and learn about the island’s lacy legacy
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Shopping.
