Venice Lagoon isles
Around Venice into the lagoon there are some isles of great glamour: Murano, Burano, San Giorgio Maggiore, Torcello and the Venice Lido beach.
Burano is a small town full of coloured houses where the Venetian tradition of the glass working is preserved. The isle of San Giorgio Maggiore faces San Marco square and it is an isle where there are no hotels but it is a place dedicated to the religious meditation. There the are the Palladio church and the Benidictine Monastery.
The Torcello isle is very interesting for those who want to know more on the Venice origins. It is one of the first inhabitated cores of the Venetian Lagoon. Today the isle is almost uninhabited and there are the remainders of a basilica.
