HISTORY, ART AND CRAFTSMEN

Sat, November 25 - Sun, November 26

Cost: 280€

Considered one of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice is made up of a collection of more than 110 small islands, connected by a web of canals and bridges. The city appears to be floating in the Venetian lagoon, calm and serene yet oddly threatened by the nearby Adriatic Sea. Influenced by both eastern and western cultures, this once bustling port city has tons to offer visitors from all walks of life.

Murano Island, famous for glass-making, is the most popular island to visit. A few centuries ago, all glass makers were required to live on the island to protect the glass-making secrets.

The Island of Burano, in the Venetian lagoon, is made of picturesque canals lined with brightly colored houses.

Torcello is one of the most visited islands in the Venice lagoon yet it is still fairly peaceful.
