Download the eBook version of Lonely Planet's PDF Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands chapter from the Venice & the Veneto guidebook

Venice & the Veneto - Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

A multitude of small islands dot the northern lagoon like shards of green glass splintering off the mainland. Here, the glass workshops of Murano have conjured writhing chandeliers, swirling goblets and gem-bright jewellery from their red-hot furnaces for centuries.

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating & Drinking, Shopping and Sports & Activities.

- engage with vivid biblical tales at Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta, where devilish imps steal all the attention away from a glittering, golden heaven

- witness artistry in action at the glass-blowing showrooms in Murano and reward their originality with your purchases

- bask in sun and culinary glory on the vineyard patio at Venissa or beneath the rose pergola at Locanda Cipriani

You can pick and choose from complete guides and individual chapters, and download them to any device you like.
