Itinerary 1

We leave Venice behind by-passing the main islands of the north of the lagoon: Burano, Torcello; on arrival at the centre of the area, we can see the places where the first settlers of the lagoon lived, they later became the pioneers of the future Republic of the Serenissima.

We will go through the sandbanks rich in wildlife and ancient abandoned islands, towards a area of the original riverbed of the river ‘’Sile, that formed the landscape of the surrounding area. Returning we pass the Island of ‘Sant Erasmo’ well know the local agricultural produce, and finally passing the ‘Lazzaretto Nuovo’ before returning to Venice.


Sites to visit

- Island of Torcello
With its one thousand year old basilica and bell tower from which you can enjoy the  unique panorama of the North of the Lagoon.


- Island of S. Francesco del deserto
Within the rows of old Ciprus trees one can find and almost unknown monastery where around 1200 St. Francis of Assisi once stayed.

 
- Island of the Lazzaretto Nuovo
In the past the ships coming from the east suspected of carrying the plague to the city were obliged to remain in quarantine within the island’s wall, where crew and merchandise were rigorously controlled. Taking a short walk around the outside of wall one can see the typical vegetation of the Lagoon.
