  • Day4

    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! 🤙

    Murano

    May 12 in Italy

    Auf Murano gehen wir zuallererst einen echten italienischen Cappuccino trinken, bewundern die unzähligen Schaufenster, Kunst und Kitsch, und gehen shoppen. Leider haben wir ein bisschen Pech. Weil heute Samstag ist, haben wir keine Chance, den Glasbläsern bei der Arbeit zuzusehen. Für die Mittagspause finden wir ein Gartenlokal im Schatten und essen Tortellini. Auf dem Rückweg zur Anlegestelle von Alilaguna, hat dann auch die sehenswerte Kirche San Pietro geöffnet, die eine Malerei von Tintoretto zu bieten hat.Read more

    Day 6: Art on Murano

    June 30, 2016 in Italy

    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

    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 💜💛💚💙❤

    Murano

    December 28, 2016 in Italy

    Wieder zurück an der Bootsstation entscheiden wir uns dazu weiter bis Murano, der Insel des bunten Glases zu schippern, was wir dann auch kurzentschlossen tun. Dort schauen wir uns in den den Geschäften um und flanieren durch die Gassen bevor wir uns auf den Weg zurück in Richtung Hotel machen.

    The day of the Vaparetto

    December 23, 2016 in Italy

    We planned today to get out of Venice itself and into the surrounding islands. A 24 hour vaparetto ticket purchased, we walked to the north of Venice to get to Murano, home to the famous glass. A short hop across the gleaming waters, we wandered the streets of sleepy Murano making tracks toward the glass museum. The pieces in here were interesting enough but the video showing how they were made was fascinating. Back on the vaparetto, we circumnavigated Venice to the islands of Giudecca and San Giorgio before taking a scenic vaparetto up the Grand Canal to Rialto where we grabbed a coffee to warm up from the freezing day. We found late-afternoon lunch in Farini, enjoying pizza and espresso before deciding on one last vaparetto trip for the day - down and back up the Grand Canal to enjoy Venice at sunset and at night. A stunning pink sunset rounded off our great trip; we head home tomorrow morning but with enough time on our travel card to take the vaparetto to our bus stop.Read more
