we had the great fortune of spending six hours with sara on a private boat, exploring murano, burano, torcello and, of course venice. mere words are not enough to describe the beauty, mystery and magic we found on these captivating islands. torcello has the beaufiful cathedral of st maria assunta,and it's stunning mosaics.and the fascinating hotel locanda cipriani with it's welcoming hearth and pictures of celebrities who have visited was just a delight to stop and visit. we had a light lunch, and visited with our guide, sara, about ernest hemingway's love of torcello. next we were off to burano, with it's giddily colored buildings, and beautiful lace. and, of course there was murano, where marco at mazzega glass kept us entertained and well informed about this magical art form. passing through venice's canals, and finally getting off very near the guggenheim exhibit, we had six hours of pure pleasure. sara was like an old friend, and kept a steady stream of easy conversation going throughout our day. my husband and i thoroghly enjoyed this tour, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to get a taste of the treasures in an around venice.
