Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

5,014 reviews
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

... a quick look inside & the church is full of light helped by its towering roofline. Tintoretto paintings are huge & look back down at the congregation. The high ceiling/roof line makes for an airy & light filled area.

Rare example of church bridge, under the apse a waterway passes at low tide. This big church give the name at the Campo Santo Stefano and was built in 13th century together with convent friars of Sant’Agostino. The wonderful gothic portal was built in 1442 by Bartolomeo Bono. Inside with three naves with circular and slimy columns. Beautiful monument dedicated to Domenico Contarini on the wall against the facade. The most beautiful paintings are in the sacristy, the Last Supper of Tintoretto and the Baptism of Jesus by Pomponio Amalteo both made in 16th century

This large church located at the end of the eponymous campo is rather plain when viewed from the campo. Just 3 narrow and tall windows and 4 hemispherical windows on the upper order and all constructed of brick. The main entry portal is rather elegant in its gothic splendor. The doorframe is in two courses of scrolled stone, with an intricately carved border. Above the door is a highly detailed false ogive arch. Inside the there is a central nave flanked by an aisle on each side. The ceiling is of a vast wooden carena di nave design. This church is well worth visiting while in Venice

It doesn't look very special from the outside but it is lovely inside. The ceiling was very unusual and we sat in a pew so that we could look at it properly. The Tintoretto paintings made it even more special. Although there are other, more spectacular churches in Venice this was the one we chose to sit and light a candle in.
