Find out unusual things to do in the islands of Venice: someone once said that the islands of Venice have to be visited at least once in a lifetime. Not too far from the city’s historic center, you will find a panorama just as gorgeous with plenty of life and history. The islands of Venice are less subject to mass tourism; therefore they are surrounded by a peaceful natural environment. Setting foot on these islands will take you to an “out of this world” scenery you thought that you would not be able to find in the hustle and bustle of Venice!
The islands of Venice that are most visited are located on the north side of the lagoon. Here, the landscape changes according to tide, season… and “caigo”(a Venetian word for “fog”), so you may see (or not) pieces of land at surface level with local fauna and flora.
You will be fascinated by the soothing sounds of waves, the swaying motion of boats, and the lovely sunsets on the sea… just a few steps from the city!
