The Venetian gondola was the primary form of transportation in Venice from the 12th century until speedboats roared into the canals in the late 20th.

The island of Burano in the lagoon of Venice

bona giornataThis is just a small glimpse of how much Venice has to offer. Having spent 3 days in the Venetian lagoon, I didn’t have enough time to see everything in the area. I highly recommend it as a weekend get-away, nonetheless if you want to travel around the somewhat lesser known islands of Murano, Burano, Lido or Torcello, you need to spend at least 4 to 5 days in the region.

Great food, the central island of Venice is well-organised, while the timing couldn’t have been better – mid March, just before the tourist season kicks in and one week before the Easter break.
