Venetian Lagoon

It is crescent-shaped and lies within the arms of three strips of land that are broken along a length of some 30 miles (45 km), creating a marshy environment that is fed by rivers yet flushed by salt water from the Adriatic. Many of the Lagoon’s islands are reclaimed land and some entirely artificial. Some are essentially dunes, including those of the coastal strip (Lido, Pellestrina and Treporti). Murano (glassmaking), Burano (colourful houses and lace) and Torcello are the most important islands on the lagoon.
