Assessment: ** Recommendable
When we travel to VeniceIn Italy, the attractions not only focus on the city of canals, but on the Venetian Lagoon We found some islands that are well worth a visit.
That is the case of the Murano Island, going by vaporetto, just 20 minutes from Venice, which throughout history has gained worldwide fame as a center of artistic glass production, from lamps, decorative figures and vases, to glass jewelry.
At our visit to Murano we can see how the island lives around glass, being able to visit a factory to see the art of blown glassor see large glass sculptures in its streets and squares. But in addition, it is worth approaching theBasilica of Santa Maria and Donato to see its impressive mosaic of Byzantine style.
