This was an excellent overview of these three islands, and really intriguing. Susan Steer is very knowledgeable. I definitely will visit these islands now that I know more about the history, art and culture. Can't wait to go!

Susan's expert commentary made me realize how much I'd missed making a day trip just to Murano many years ago. Her lovely video clips and photographs brought the sites to life, and her specific practical suggestions on not-to-be missed places, dining spots and even best times of day to visit were much appreciated.
This is another excellent presentation done in a very professional way but also in a warm and pleasing manner. The personal videos taken by the presenter are a very nice touch. I have been lucky enough to have been to Venice 5 times and to the islands several times, and seeing things I already knew and learning new things from this seminar was very enjoyable and brought back many fond memories... Thank you, Dr. Steer
Susan took the listeners on a vaporetto trip to Torcello, and give a short historical background of the island. We then went to Burano and Murano, where we saw pictures of the salient points in each island. Taking us to these islands by boat was a very good idea, as that is how one would get to these places, which are totally linked to their watery surroundings.
