A 40-minute boat ride from Punta Sabbioni will take you to the open-air museum of Venice. Strolling from St. Mark’s square to Rialto Bridge and the Academy is a marvellous experience. Visiting art galleries, churches and museums or simply roaming through calli and callette, the city allows visitors to combine a relaxing holiday with unforgettable cultural enjoyment.
The northern lagoon and more besides
Just a few minutes’ boat ride from Cavallino-Treporti Ricevitoria one comes to the islets of the northern lagoon: Burano, with its characteristic coloured houses, famous for its lace; Murano, world-famous for centuries for the quality of its glassware; Torcello, the cradle of Veneto civilisation, with its basilica and archaeology and medieval museum.
