We have explored many islands around Venice including Murano, Burano and San Giorgio. Murano is world renowned for its glass making industry. We had a chance to watch glass blowing up close and visited several of the glass galleries. Burano is a charming little fishing village famous for its lace making and brightly colored houses. San Giorgio is directly across from Piazza San Marco on the main island. We went to top of bell tower to get a nice view overlooking the lagoon.
