Take a vaparetto (water taxi) on a jaunt around the peaceful Laguna di Venezia...you can stop at Chiaggio, Lido, Murano, Burano or other smaller isles and spend a day hopping on and off the boat...see glass blowing factories, small churches and marketplaces to mention a...More

If you have time during your trip to Venice, try to visit some of the islands of the lagoon. We went to Burano, Murano, Lido and Chioggia, using the daily travel pass for the Actv boats, and enjoyed a variety of environments and atmospheres.

Great escape. From the city. And the crowds. Great to get around to outer islands, the Marco Polo airport and outlying towns. Heavily traveled and all sorts of vessels here. A real taste of the area around the city. And a must do thing for...More

Burano a must but get away from the tourist drag! We had a lovely lunch down a side canal at a little restaurant away from the usual drag!

Lived sailing across the Laguna but despite us going back and forth several times we didn't see George Clooney! Stunning views nevertheless.

Yet another beautiful sight in Venice. If you especially love the sea and water, this will be extra special. Some great views from the Lagoon/Laguna and really a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Grab some wine and enjoy the views here!

Amazing to see how this city is put together. You can understand why they built it where they did to protect themselves from marauders of the day.

We took a Hop on Hop off water taxi tour and the views were stunning. We visited Murano and saw an actual artisan blowing glass. It usually costs 5 euro per person to see. On the way back we were in the Lagoon.

Venice is the lagoon and thanks to the water buses and a pass you can travel to most of the islands and places of interest with just the problem of breathing in to squeeze abord - they are popular. We enjoyed St Elena, St Pietro,...More

about half hour by ferry
Hi Is it possible to do justice to Murano, Burano and Torcello in an afternoon (making use of our 24 hour travel pass!) or should we just concentrate on one or two? If we can do it, has anyone got a suggested itinerary complete with vaporetto numbers and timings please? From Piazzale Roma. Thank you

I'd prioritize them and do the one I am most interested first and then just see how it goes. My philosophy, even thought you didn't ask is that my vacation means not adhering to a schedule. Having a list of options and just... More
I am in a hotel on the grand canal, I was going to book a trip to murano and burano but it seems you can get to them without booking a tour. Is it possible to go in the places and pay or do you have to be on a tour

I think the master glass blowing demonstration in one of the factory on the island of Murano is free. But you need to check the time when demonstration is given to the public.
