To make your holiday even more special, we recommend a trip to Venice; a lagoon city rich in art, history and culture. It's easy to fall in love with the beauty of this city; just take a walk through its alleys, cross its campielli (squares), peek into its hidden courtyards and let your gaze wander from its shores to the horizon. Then you will forget the passing of time if you indulge yourself in hearing the stories that Venice's palaces, museums and churches tell through stones, paintings and sculptures. In Venice you will fall in love forever.
Venice can be easily reached by land or sea and the journey is enchanting, whichever method you choose. We will provide you with all the necessary information, you have only to get ready to be amazed.
It is worth staying in Jesolo for a few days more to visit the lagoon islands, some of which can be reached by motorboat straight from Punta Sabbioni. All of these islands have their peculiarities, which will stick in your mind for a long time to come.
In a short time you can familiarise yourself with the ancient history of Torcello. This island was originally the domain of fishermen dedicated to collecting salt in Roman times. It then became an important episcopal site in the Middle Age; the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta is, in fact, today a precious testimony of one of the most prosperous centres of the ancient duchy of Venice. The island has just 15 inhabitants and still maintains a special charm; it would really be a shame not to experience it.
It only takes a minute to fall under Burano's spell. This cheerful island, with its typical houses painted in bright colours that only a playful painter could use, welcomes you with the smiles of its famous lacemakers. The women of Burano lovingly pass down the ancient art of lacemaking on bobbins; a craft originated in the 16th Century that has been continuing until today.
Sometimes you may also have the chance to see enthusiasts standing on gondolas and paddling them with two oars in the waters surrounding the island. Most probably, these are rowers from the Regatta of Burano, training for the race which takes place in September (third Sunday of the month). This event is the hotly awaited rematch of The Historical Regatta of Venice that finishes just two weeks beforehand.
Under no circumstances you can leave the island without trying a bussolà; a typical ring-shaped biscuit with a simple yet tantalising flavour.
Venice is also famous for its blown glass industry. Since 1291, the production site of blown glass has been the island of Murano after the Maggior Consiglio (Great Council) banned production within the city of Venice for safety reasons (risk of fire). The furnaces therefore moved to the nearby island of Murano which became the only place authorised to produce glass in all the regions of the Republic. The art was passed down over the centuries from fathers to sons, so much so that today it is still possible to see a master craftsman at work, shaping the material with fire. To enjoy this show simply walk into one of the island's workshops. Murano glass is a precious objet of art, sought after by collectors from all over the world, why not come and see how it is created?
