There’s so much more to see and do around the Venetian lagoon which is anything but uninteresting.
There’s plenty to experience within a short of our base on the Certosa islands: the islands of Sant’Andrea (foto), Sant’Erasmo, Vignole and Lazzaretto Nove, and marshes full of small winding canals and a plethora of birds.
Tours to Burano through the lagoon are full day tours, of circa 20km.
Torcello was once a city to rival Venice, but it went into decline in the 13th century, and now little is left but two beautiful churches. The larger church was founded in 631 CE, making it the oldest church in the lagoon. The Byzantine mosaics alone is the worth the trip.
Tours to Torchello through the lagoon are full day tours, of about 25km.
Kayaking to the island for a visit to the monastery is a special kind of pilgrimage.
The marshes surrounding Venice is a rare type of natural environment. It is a tidal salt marsh, which lives and breathes with the tide. It is also home to a plethora of birds and plants, many of which can only be found in the Venetian lagoon.
A day kayaking in the Venetian lagoon is a side of Venice few people experience.
