Murano aglow. Holidays in the Venetian Lagoon
About a mile north of Venice, in the Venetian Lagoon, is a collection of seven small islands that lie so closely together they’re generally known as a single island called ‘Murano.’ Visitors cross the narrow canals of Murano via pedestrian bridges. And during the holidays, those canals are decorated with lights, making the whole scene even more romantic.
