MURANO – ISLAND OF GLASS

Known as Glass Island, Murano is indeed a glass-production centre. In fact, the locals have been blowing glass there since 1291. Venice’s glassblowers were sent to Murano, as their glassworks were fire hazard to the city, which at the time was build on wood. As the only Europeans who knew how to make glass mirrors, they further honed their skills to develop enamel glass, multi-colored glass and lattimo milk glass.

TORCELLO – ISLAND OF ANCESTORS

Torcello takes a long time to reach by vaporetto (roughly one hour) and is the oldest part of Venice. After the fall of Roman Empire in the 5th century, the first Venetians took hold there during foreign invasions of the mainland. If you plan to do a wedding in here I suggest the hotel that was build in 1934 by Cipriani family and is still owned by them. The cuisine of the restaurant Locanda Cipriani still serves traditional Venetian food. The world-renowned Bellini cocktail – prosecco and peach nectar – was invented in the 1930s by Giuseppe Cipriani.
