Not to be confused with Murano, which is one of the separate islands of the city of Venice, Mirano is a settlement that is on the Italian mainland, but still comes under the region of Veneto, in the north-east of the country. If you are looking for a perfect holiday in Italy, that is more reasonably priced than staying within Venice city itself, but still offers the same level of exciting places to visit and things to do, a holiday in Mirano will definitely be for you.
It is probably a good idea to think about hiring a car to enable you to get out and about more easily on your holidays in Mirano and the region of Venice. This will allow you to be in the thick of the most popular attractions in Venice in next to no time at all. Around the town of Mirano, however, there are more than enough activities to keep you totally entertained for the duration of your stay. These include swimming, tennis, fishing, cycling, horse riding, jogging, nearby gym facilities and there are even a good number of golf courses located throughout this part of the world.
As your holidays in Mirano will be spent a mere stone’s throw away from the actual city of Venice, you will have to be completely mad not to include this destination on your sightseeing itinerary. The impressive St. Mark’s Square is an absolute must and the small cafés around this part of the city are an ideal place in which to people watch and allow the world to go by. Rialto Bridge is best seen from beneath it on one of the many canals that wend their way through the city and there are actually cheap and frequent ferry bus services to allow you to get about. Such ferry buses will even take you out to the separate island of Murano - sorry to confuse you! - but this is definitely worth time spent checking out the glassware that this island is famous for the world over. Have your credit card on standby here as some of the examples of glassware you are going to see really are overwhelming and make for the perfect souvenirs or presents for the family back home.
Ostensibly, it would be difficult to state that the region of Venice enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate - personally, I feel it is just a shade beneath this level. However, that said, you can still expect to enjoy a relatively mild climate throughout the whole year. Summers see the temperatures easily reaching the high-twenties degrees Celsius on most days. During the winter, this is more likely to be around the low-teens degrees. The average annual rainfall for this part of Italy is around the 22 inches mark.
Your closest and most convenient airport for your holidays in Mirano is going to be Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE). This accepts flights through airlines such as Thomson Airways, Jet2.com, BMI Baby, easyJet and British Airways. From UK departure points such as London Gatwick (LGW), Heathrow (LHR), East Midlands (EMA), Manchester (MAN) and Leeds-Bradford (LBA).
