An ancient tale of
beauty and courage!
The Venice Lagoon is a wonderful region that holds an ancient and fascinating history.
This territory between land and sea spans across an area of 550 km² and consists of numerous islands, some inhabited, others not, and breathtaking landscapes where untouched nature meets the sea and becomes an integral part of it.
"Hundreds of islands
full of charm.
Today, the Venetian lagoon consists of approximately 40 islands, some larger and others smaller.
Over the years, some islands have been submerged by the sea and have disappeared forever from this territory.
This journey takes us to the discovery of the vanished islands of the Venetian lagoon, which today lie on the seafloor, but their history will never be forgotten.
Venice is not comprised of just one island, but numerous small islets that have come together over time.
The city’s historic center is made up of nearly 180 islets, connected by 435 bridges and crossed by 176 canals.
A day of discoveries, colors,
and intense emotions!
The Venetian Lagoon encompasses many other lagoon islands besides the historic center, among which are the famous islands of Giudecca, San Giorgio, Murano, Burano, Torcello, Mazzorbo, Mazzorbetto, Lido di Venezia, Chioggia, Pellestrina, and many others.
The islands of the Venetian Lagoon formed over time due to natural causes or human intervention.
Currently, there are approximately 40 Venetian islands, some inhabited and others uninhabited.
Every island in the Venice Lagoon is a sweet discovery.
The lagoon also includes smaller islets such as Sant’Erasmo, San Servolo, Lazzaretto Vecchio, Poveglia, Isola delle Vignole, San Francesco del Deserto, Treporti, Lio Piccolo, La Certosa, San Clemente, San Lazzaro degli Armeni, San Michele, and many others.
