Setting sail by boat from the ports of Punta Sabbioni or Ricevitoria, in Treporti, you can get to the islands of the North Lagoon in a few minutes.
The first must-see is the island of Burano, famous for its colorful houses and lace. You can enjoy picturesque views by walking along the narrow streets which open up to a world beyond space and time, that create joy and serenity. Do not miss the bell tower and the "Bepi Suà house" which is multicoloured and decorated with various geometric shapes.
Before leaving for a new island, taste the traditional cakes of Burano, the "Bussolà" and the "Esse". Their delicious taste will add something to your memory of this island of unique charm.
The second place that cannot be missed is Murano. This is where glass-makers have been making true works of art for centuries.
Formed by seven islets crossing a canal, this island is home to the Glass Museum and the Lighthouse that lights up the mouth of Lido port. Do not miss a visit to a glass workshop. It is an experience that will blow your mind and which will be an extraordinary spectacle even for the little ones!
Finally, organise a stop in Torcello too. Now it is an almost uninhabited island, but it stands out for its priceless archaeological heritage. By visiting the old historic centre, the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta with its bell tower, the church of Santa Fosca, the Devil's Bridge and the archaeological and the medieval museums, you can discover the charm and richness of one of the oldest settlements of the lagoon.
