The famous Carpaccio dish actually originates from Venice!
This world-renowned appetizer is made of thin slices of raw or rare beef with pepper, capers, and other variations as well as a certain sauce marinade.
There are many shops around Murano Island that sell the renowned exquisite Murano glass as well as numerous museums and factories that can be toured during the day.
Tourists visiting the island especially enjoy the demonstrations of the glassmaking process by the talented glass-makers.
The most famous landmark of Murano is the the Basilica dei St Maria e Donato, which originally was built in the 7th century
It was, however, reconstructed in the 12th century after St Donatus’ remains were moved to the church along with bones said to be from a dragon he slayed, which now hang inside the church on the altar.
