Today, visitors can hop on a boat and enjoy various islands and today’s existing towns—one of the most popular choices being the glass-making island of Murano, located on near the northern shore. Murano, aside from its industry, also sports an impressive canal-sides, delightful lighthouse and of course, the 12th-century Veneto-Byzantine Basilica dei Santi Maria e Donato.
Another of the lagoons famous islands, Burano, is known best for its charming canal-lined fisherman’s homes, each painted as brightly as the Venetian sky, and with an atmosphere that is intrinsically unique.
Also be sure to visit the beautiful, yet abandoned islands of Mazzorbo, San Giorgio Maggiore and the more popular Torcello.
