Lagoon islands of Venice, Italy

Venice being a very famous town in Italy adds up being among one of the most visited cities in the world, and it sure does have a lot of attractions but so do the two amazing lagoon islands near it which, according to me are definitely worth exploring.

Murano:

A gem of a place, lying in the north of Venice, Italy is renowned for its history of glass making. This charming island has several skilled craftsmen continuing their local tradition of making glass, a lot of visitors come here to explore the Museo del Vetro, which is a museum showing the history of glass through the years. This little town also has many glass factories which demonstrate the process of making the glass, and also quite a few souvenir shops where you can buy fine and attractive glass jewelry for your loved ones..

Apart from having a history of glass making, this place also has its own grand canal, shops and sidewalk cafes, and also many beautiful streets..

Burano:

A very picturesque island of fishermen having lanes full of beautiful vibrant colored apartments and houses that give a very rainbow vibe, lies near Murano and can be easily reached by ferry. This island, however, is famous for its lacemaking and has a ton of shops where one can buy various lace products, it also has many fascinating bakeries and other shops. Apart from the bright houses, this island has narrow and clear canals. Since its a very small town, Burano would be best explored by simply walking in its extremely scenic and colourfull streets.

The best way to get to these islands from the main Venice island is by the Vaporetto (water bus)

LAZISE, an Italian village

Lazise is a little village in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 120 kilometres west of Venice and is located on the eastern shore of the beautiful Lake Garda.

I am sure not most people would have heard the name of this wonderful place and that is the reason I wanted to write about it. I was amazed by the unique beauty of this place. This charming village lies very near to the famous town Gardasee also called the Garda lake which has the world famous Gardaland amusement/water park.

I loved to explore the lively markets of this place, it had some remarkability to it, and trust me you could spend hours just roaming in the market, having an ice cream. Sounds like a perfect holiday, doesn’t it?

Exploring the streets

Well if you are interested in history you can also visit the lazise castello which is a beautiful historical castle on the shore of lake garda and has a very pleasant surrounding.

Well when it comes to hotels, there are a few camping hotels nearby. I stayed in the hotel called ‘Camping La Quercia’ along with my family. This hotel was situated on lake garda, was perfect for someone who likes camping.

I am really glad that instead of going to the famous towns in Italy, I explored something different, moreover this village was very characteristic and full of life and also conveniently near to Gardaland.
