The second and last part of my trip to Venice. I really shot to much photos in 4 days. On the third day we’ve visited the islands Burano, Torcello and Murano. We bought a day card for the Vaporetto, which costed €20,-. It’s expensive for one day, but if you did al the boattrips with a single card it was more expensive. When you’re more than three days in Venice, you really should visit these islands! It’s really great and you escape the crowds of Venice.
At day 4 it was time to go home. Before it was time, we did some beauty shopping in the Sephora (beauty lovers: there’s a Sephora in Venice <3 It’s a few minutes walking from the Rialto Bridge). After the shopping we walked around in the district of San Polo.
On our way to Burano, the first island we’ve visited.
Burano is the island of the coloured house. It’s really beautiful to see. I almost got the feeling like I was on a Caribbean island.
View of Torcello.
Look how nice this is!
This photo is not crooked. The church tower is crooked just like the tower of Pisa.
Next island please!
The second island we’ve visited was Torcello. Before the rise of Venice and before there was a malaria plague, thousands of people lived here. You can’t imagine this, when you walk here. Now there live a handful of people. It’s a peaceful and green island with just one street. A big contrast with Venice.
In the distance you see the cathredal Santa Maria Assunta.
Later that day we’ve visited Murano. This island is well known for it’s glass blowing. You’ll find a lot of shops with glassworks. I think this island impressed me less than Burano or Torcello. But it still is a beautiful island to see. I recommend you to visit this island also when you have the chance. It’s little Venice. It’s Venice without the crowds.
Cometa di Vetro, a beautiful and big artwork of glass.
We wanted to stay longer at Murano so we could have diner there. But at the end it wasn’t a real good idea, because of the weather. When we got back on Venice, the weather became better.
We were the only ones of the hotel with our own balcony.
When you’re in Italy, you have to eat a real Italian pizza. As a pizza lover I did that more than one time. At the airport I said goodbye to the lovely Italian food. You can really wake me up for Italian food. The time went really fast and it was time to leave Italy. I really enjoyed it.
