A handy guide to Venice's hidden gems

Easyvoyage Logo By Charlie Campbell of Easyvoyage | Slide 1 of 10: The Island of Murano, just north of Venice, is famous for the delicate art of glass-blowing and thus attracts thousands of visitors each year, who swarm the streets and pile up in front of workshop windows. For an alternative island visit, why not discover Burano, a quaint and colorful fisherman's island, which promises to be less crowded than hectic Murano or mainland Venice. The island's main craftsmanship is lace making, but you'll also find glass making shops here, although not nearly as impressive as those on Murano. Best of all, eating out in Burano promises to be a lot less expensive than Venice, with the island's seafood coming in cheaper and boasting a much higher quality!
