Travel to Venice’s Smaller Islands
With an Azamara Club Cruises City Stay, you’ll have time to explore beyond the Piazza San Marco and the Grand Canal and also see some of the less-visited islands on Azamara’s excursions. Facing St. Mark’s right across the Giudecca Canal, the island of San Giorgio Maggiore is home to one of Palladio’s most impressive churches in the city. Another excursion travels farther out on the lagoon and includes the islands of Murano and Burano. Murano has an atmosphere similar to Venice
, albeit on a smaller scale, and is also world famous for the beautiful pieces created by its glass blowers. You’ll get to see them at work on a visit to one of their workshops. The quaint nearby island of Burano is known for its lace production if you are searching for a truly unique souvenir.
