Cruising around the Venice Lagoon in the mid afternoon of a summery day is very peaceful and relaxing but not particularly impressive.
The Venetian Lagoon is a huge enclosed bay surrounding Venice and the surrounding Islands. If you are visiting Venice for a couple of days or more, purchase a travelcard and visit the Islands of Murano ( where the glass factories are located), Lido (lovely long beaches) and Burano ( with its colourful houses and lace shops).

Morning coffee at the top of Via Garribaldi watching all the water traffic on the Lagoon and seeing the big cruise ships dwarfing the place.
