Venice & the Veneto - Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

Small islands dot the northern lagoon like shards of green glass splintering off the mainland. The northernmost are sleepy, with only the pretty town of Burano attracting significant tourists. Murano’s glass workshops conjure writhing chandeliers and gem-bright jewellery from their red-hot furnaces.

  • engage with visions of angels, saints and dastardly demons within the golden glow of an-cient mosaics in the lagoon’s oldest church, Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta
  • maps
  • witness artistry in action at Murano’s glass-blowing showrooms, and reward the skill and originality with purchases of unique mementoes to take home
  • transport
  • watch colourful houses shimmer with delight at their own reflections in the canals on Burano
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating & Drinking, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
