Venice – Islands of the Emerald Lagoon

  • 17 min
  • English

Explore Venice’s three daughters with Piri Guide, your personal travel guide. Our location-based audio tours in Venice offer a unique journey through the heart of these three remarkable islands: Murano, Burano, and Torcello.

Join us on an unforgettable journey through Torcello, the eldest sister, and wise sage of Venice. Unlike other Italian cities, Venice doesn’t have a Roman or Hellenistic past, but Torcello Island was the chosen site for the Romans to establish their city. Here, you’ll find the oldest buildings in the lagoon, steeped in centuries of history.

Next, we introduce Murano, the hardworking middle sister, known for her remarkable glass artistry. Explore the exquisite workshops where the world-famous Murano glass is crafted, and you might just find yourself taking home a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

Lastly, we present Burano, the youngest of the sisters, known for her vibrant charm. The colorful houses of this picturesque fishing village, along with its charming leaning bell tower, will leave you in awe. As you stroll through the very streets once graced by the footsteps of Vivaldi and Marco Polo, you’ll experience the unique magic that defines this island.

Don’t miss the chance to uncover the captivating stories of Venice’s daughters.  Piri Guide’s Venice audio tour is your key to unlocking the hidden treasures of the city. Download the app!
