If you have never been to Venice before your stunned at the size of the area, must larger than I had expected. The boat ride is longer than one expects partly due to the speed restrictions, and the multiple stops the water taxi's make. But it's breathtaking to look around you and wonder what it was like centuries ago

My wife and I took a boat across the lagoon to Murano to see some glass making at one of the factories there. We saw some great views of Venice on the ride. Upon our departure we went across the lagoon to the airport. It was very interesting and I am not much of a water person. Venice is just... More

Nothing is more romantic than a quiet, foggy evening along the lagoon. It is the living representation of some of the melancholic notes of Vivaldi's Winter. Everyone should visit Venice at least once in life.

From every corner the view on the Laguna is always beautiful. Sunset or sundown, the glittering on the water and the diversity of boats is a joy for your eyes.

Travelling from St Marks to Murano or the Lido, you travel across the Laguna and it gives you a great view of the many islands around the lagoon. Can be a bit choppy so not recommended if you are easily seasick!

Whether it's just a trip around the city's perimeter or a visit to an outer island (we only saw Murano), going out on the lagoon provides you with yet another side to the city.

Had the special opportunity to traverse the lagoon at night in the bow of a cruise ship, one of many tours from Venice) and watching the shore covering The Grand Canal to St. Marks Square to Lido to the open Anionic Sea through the shipping channel brings home Venice as a global sea port both yesterday and today.

If you have time, take a vaporetto to one of the islands, for example Burano. The trip itself makes it already worthwhile. Beautifull vista's everywhere, very romantic and relaxing.

It has to be crossed to get to Venice and to be honest it is the most beautiful shuttle I have ever had to get to a holiday.

To be honest I have no love of the Lagoon, it is like a motorway, just a means to and end i.e. getting to the Islands that are so wonderful. The vaporettas and other boats give a great service.

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.
