This IS Venice

The water, the water traffic, the islands and the buildings rising against the sky. Beautiful. TA doesn't like one to be brief!

Take a vaporetto tour of the grand canal & over to Murano. Very inexpensive if you buy the daily passes, and well worth the trip. These water "buses" can get very crowded, but we listened to the Rick Steves guide to the grand canal via our iphones, so had a narrated trip. Highly recommend!

Beautiful blue all around with stunning views of Venice! Definitely an enjoyable backdrop when journeying out to see Murano island. Just adds to the anticipation!

I made use of the 24 hour water bus pass whilst in Venice to see the Grand Canal as well as Murano and Burano. Gives a very good overview of the lagoon and the various islands, and much cheaper than arranging private transport.

I love everything about my trip to Venice! This lagoon is full of life, and full of beauty. Make sure to gaze out onto the blue and everything next to it for as long as you can!

I recommend doing the Gondola Ride early in the morning to avoid the summer heat, long waits, and too much water traffic.

We used this as our taxi to and from the airport. It did take an hour to get to and from Lido but the sights are breathtaking and worth every minute. There's something about cruising around on a boat that just makes everything look so great.

It is worth taking a water bus around the lagoon etc. and seeing the siights from a different perspective and also a bit of how the locals act outside the real tourist areas.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
