Your experience


  • Explore the origins of Venice on a day trip
  • Visit the Archaeological Museum of Altinum
  • Enjoy the beauty of the lagoon islands


Walk in the footsteps of the first Venicians and explore Altinum and the lagoon islands of Torcello and Burano.

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

Torcello and Burano in particular were considered the headquarters of the Venetians at that time. Therefore you are the next stops on our journey. You can explore the islands on your own in peace and quiet. If the nearby monastery on the island of San Francesco del Deserto interests you more than Burano, you can replace your visit with that of the monastery.

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