Venetian islands tour on private boat
San Francesco del Deserto's Island and its Church, near the bell tower and the monastery. The area is surrounded by a garden, where you can enjoy pleasant walks with the only company of the twitter of the numerous birds that inhabit the garden.
Torcello's Island: right in front of Burano we find the island of Torcello. This is the birthplace of the venetian culture and here is where the first urban settlements in the lagoon were born. The houses and the churches were built by Veneto's citizens, escaping from the barbarian invasions. Due to the unhealthy conditions of the area, this zone was abandoned later on. Today, we can still see the VII century Cathedral "Santa Maria Assunta", Santa Fosca's Church, the interesting Torcello's Museum and the peculiar stone seat, better known as Attila's "throne".
Lunch at Locanda Cipriani. It was one of Hemingway's favourite places in the area and here he composed one of his most important books "Across The River And Into The Trees".
Walking through the streets of Burano: if you have a little more time or if you come back to Venice, you can't go home without visiting Burano, easily reachable with ferries. Visiting Burano is unique: the island is not very crowded, the houses are very colourful and it is impossible not to smile after a walk down its streets because the whole atmosphere is serene and relaxing. The island is also famous for its lace work.
