    Three islands in Venice

    September 13, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today we took the water bus and went to three different islands off of Venice. First we went to Torcello, it is the oldest island, 1600 years old. It's also really small. There's pretty much only a really old church and a few stores. We only spent 20 minutes there to look at the church and then took the water bus to the next island.

    Burano is known for its lace making, we saw a lady who was 77 years old. We got to watch her do some embroidery and she told us that she has been embroidering since she was 7 years old. There were lots of little shops with lace scarves, curtains and other stuff. We had lunch near a fountain and then we walked around taking pictures of the colorful houses which were all colors of the rainbow.

    After taking the water bus again, we arrived in Murano where they do glass-blowing. We went into a few stores with glass balloons, animals and jewelry. Neve bought a family of four little octopi made of glass. Then we went to a cafe where we got juice, tea and coffee. We sat there for a bit writing postcards. Then, we took the water bus back to Venice and got on a normal bus to our apartment.

    In the evening, we went out to a pizzeria and got some delicious pizza for dinner.

    Aujourd'hui nous sommes allés à trois différents îles de Venice, Torcello, Burano et Murano. On a pris un autobus d'eau pour rendre à Torcello. C'est le plus vieille des îles, il est environ 1600 ans. L'île est aussi très petit, il y a une église, et des petits magasins. On a passé environ 20 minutes lâ et après on a pris l'autobus à Burano.

    Burano est connu pour la fabrication du dentelle. On a vu ue femme de 77 ans qui brodait, elle brodait depuis qu'elle a 7 ans. On a mangé le dîner près d'une fontaine et après on a marché et pris beaucoup de photos des maisons, tous les maisons étaient des couleurs vibrantes: rouge, orange, vert, bleu, tout les couleurs de l'arc-en-ciel. Après, on a pris l'autobus d'eau à Murano.

    À Murano, on a regarder dans des boutiques de vitre. Murano spécialize dans la fabrication de verre, ils font des bols, des balloones, des petits figures d'animaux et des pendentifs. Neve a acheté une famille de quatre petits pieuvres fait de verre qui sont très beaux. On a arrêté à un café et on a bu du jus, du café et du thé. Après, on a marché à l'autobus d'eau, on l'a pris à Venice et on a pris un autobus normale à notre apartement.

    Pour le souper, on a allé à un pizzeria pour mangé le pizza.

    First impressions: Venice and Murano

    April 19, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Bei strahlendem Sonnenschein ☀️ ging’s erst per Bus (unser Campground hat direkt eine Haltestelle 🚉 vor der Tür) und dann weiter mit dem Wasserbus durch die Kanäle von Venedig und später auf die Insel Murano.

    Nachdem wir uns einen Sitzplatz ergattert hatten, ließen wir uns mit unserem Wasserbus über den „Canale Grande“ bis zum Markusplatz fahren. Ein kurzer Besuch in der Kathedrale ⛪️ und dem angrenzenden Markusplatz und dann schnell den Menschenmassen entfliehen.

    Im Anschluss ging es durch die verwinkelten Gassen zur „Rialto Brücke“ und dann in Richtung Murano. Nach einer kurzweiligen aber sehr amüsanten Fahrt mit dem Wasserbus, wir haben das ein oder andere Boot, was im Weg stand gerammt 🙈 ... schlenderten wir durch die Gassen von Murano.

    Hier gefiel es uns eindeutig besser, weniger Touristen und alles etwas entspannter und gechillter.

    Morgen soll’s für uns nach Burano gehen ... wir sind super gespannt, was uns dort erwartet und am späten Nachmittag gibt es noch eine Walking-Tour durch Venedig 😊.

    We are also on Instagram #finnweltenbummler ... see you there! 🤙

    Day 6: Art on Murano

    June 30, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We then went to a glass factory on the famous island of Murano where we first had to make a glass mosaic. We were just reproducing a child's mosaic with glass bits glued on wood, but it was fun and we got to cut glass rods into little bits.

    Next we went into the room with the glass forge and had to try to blow as large (in diameter) oblong of glass as we could without popping it like a bubble. Here is a video of Russell's effort:

    Finally, we had to try shaping molten glass into something (anything we wanted). It's really hard to shape the glass before it cooled. I ended up with something that might have been a flower (if you squint a lot) and R did just about as well on his interpretation of a hand.

    Murano & Burano, island hopping

    July 8, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We took a day trip away from the crowds of Venice to the island's of Murano & Burano.

    Murano is famous for its hand made glass sculptures and glass blowing workshops. A collection of assorted sculptures decorated the shops ranging from a 1m tall, minature human pyramid to a goldfish inside a pelecan! With lots of glass souveniour shops to choose from it was surprisingly hard to find a shop where we both agreed on something we liked, two glass sweets!

    The challenge was accepted!! To try and get them through the trip and back home in one piece. All will be revealed when we unpack them at home.

    Burano was an island which we absolutely loved, with the contrasting colourful houses each painted individually. We would encourage a visit if you're in the area 💜💛💚💙❤
