The Venice lagoon and its islands: Jewels for the taking
The Venice lagoon and its islands Murano - Burano - Torcello: Jewels for the taking
Among the city treasures there's one you should be keen on seeking out: Venice Lagoon with its historical, naturalistic and also human heritage is indeed a precious jewel. It is like a mother, a primordial element that over the centuries has given birth to Venice, pretected it (from the elements of the Sea, from the Barbarian and Turkish invasion, ect.) and ultimately made it so very unique in its configuration.
Needless to say, anything you do around the Lagoon involves a dive into the past in search of bygone times, of the early beginnings and the fundamentals values of life. Depending on how much time you have at your disposal, you can put together a very loosely former itinerary (considering also the high frequency of city transportation service.) Here are a few tips, noting that the main itineraries (at least those heading to the northern Lagoon) depart from the Fondamenta Nuove landing ramp.
