There are many places to sit and enjoy the sunsets or to sit and watch the boats going about their business. The water is not so clean with Venice using this a dynamic sewage system to flush away things. Try to get to Dorsoduro area...More

The light coming off the Laguna is so amazing it explains why Canelletto and other famous artists have painted it so often It is so different from any place I have been. A real mystery color and unforgetable.

By going to Murano and travelling on different water buses we were able to see so much of the island and especially the fantastic skyline of San Marco as we headed away from and then back to the island

The Vaporetto to Burano or the water taxi to the airport tranist the lagoon and provide unmaatched views of Venice and its landmarks. A great experience.

I loved being on the lagoon going from island to island - it is a great way to take in the sites and to remind you that you are in an amazing city that is floating on the sea. A perfect day.

The lagoon in Venice has an incredible and impeccable view that amazed people from generation to generation. I am stunned by its ethereal nature beauty, enchanting culture and enriched history. This is where the story of Venezia begins, and for sure (hopefully, without the threat...More

The laguna of Venice is like a busy motorway in some parts but it blows you away and is a must do experience either by vaporetto , taxi or even some of the hotel transfer boats

Really enjoyed our travels around the Venice lagoon on various vaporetto, visiting the main sites in Venice, Lido, Murano, Burano. It is nice to just watch the world go by on a vaporetto, get a vaporetto ticket for a few days, just ensure you get...More

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

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.
