What could be more authentically Venice than the Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge, Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica? Across the lagoon you will find it in the islands of Murano and Burano. Time literally comes to a halt here as the frenetic pace of mass tourism gives over to quiet squares and canals where traditions go on undisturbed.
Murano is home to Venetian hand blown glass and the kilns used to create these timeless masterpieces. This collection of seven islets linked by bridges has even more to explore. Visiting a glassworks and gallery is a quintessential experience here, however take the time to discover treasures like San Donato church after browsing the shops.
Colorful Burano has been making Venice’s exquisite handmade lace for 500 years. This intricate craft has been handed down from mother to daughter and you can still see it everywhere, even far from the souvenir stands. A demonstration will give you an idea just how long a doily can take, and don’t miss the pastel hues of the houses that crowd the sleepy canals of this village on the water.
