Your experience


  • Discover the origins of Venice on a day trip
  • Visit the exciting Archaeological Museum of Altino
  • Enjoy the beauty of the lagoon islands


Walk in the footsteps of the first Venetians and explore Altino and the lagoon islands of Torcello and Burano.

Enjoy a day in the lagoon between interesting archaeology and quiet nature. Explore Altino, a strategic Roman city from which the Venetians settled on the islands. Located in the city is the National Archaeological Museum, where you can learn more about the early history of the Venetian Empire.

In former times, Torcello and Burano in particular were regarded as the headquarters of the Venizians. That is why they are the next stops on our journey. You can explore the islands on your own. If you are more interested in the nearby monastery on the island of San Francesco del Deserto than Burano, you can replace your visit with that of the monastery.

If you are not directly in Altino at the time of the trip, you can book a bus transfer from Lido di Jesolo, which will drop you off directly in front of the museum in Altino.
