The north of the lagoon

The north of the lagoon Fish farms, lakes, salt marshes and ghebi (small canals in the salt marshes), with their particular vegetation and variety of fauna, are a source of beauty that has not been yet evaluated as it should and that offers new perspectives of tourist development, away from the traditional itineraries and aimed to a sensible use of natural resources through mild and controlled intervention in respect of ecological balance and according to the knowledge and defence of the environment.

In order to admire the beauty and magic of the lagoon, we take a Vaporetto, the public means of transport, that allows us to move easily through shallows of ghebi and the lakes of the so called “dead lagoon”. Visiting the lagoon also means discovering the traditional activities that have always been the distinctive features of every island: Murano with its glass, Burano with its lace and Torcello the first historic settlement in  the lagoon. All this will go together with typical food and wine.
