Surrounded by the beautiful environment of Burano and Murano islands, enter the elaborate handmade art of colorful glass masterpieces along with the old art of lace. Walk by the fishing villages houses and take an impressive photo shot of San Martino church. 

            Visit, by boat, two of Venice’s most prominent islands of the Northern Lagoon, Murano and Burano, famous for their glass blowing and lace making. The 16th century was known as the “great age” of Murano glass, glassware being one of the few Venetian exports and as such, the secrets of this skillful craft were tightly guarded.

             Although today glass making is no longer a secret, the Murano product of blown-glass mirrors, chandeliers, goblets and intricate works of art are renowned worldwide. Visit a major glass factory to view the masters of this delicate craft at work. The display rooms of the finished product provide beautiful viewing. Then, continue on to the island of Burano. Brightly painted houses beautifully decorate this small and cheerful fishing village.

             The banks of the canals are lined with fishing dories and the setting is indeed picturesque. Burano is well known for its lace making. Although not a popular art these days, lace making is still practiced today by some Burano women. Photography enthusiasts will definitely want to capture the sight of the curious tilt to the campanile, next to the 16th century church of San Martino.
