We used the 20 Euro 24 hour travel card to take the vaporetto around the lagoon. We visited Murano, Burano and then Lido. Murano and Burano are well worth visiting (with Burano being the favorite) and the Lido can be skipped unless you really want the beach. The water bus are pretty frequent and its easy to get around together... More

Buy yourself a 24 hour travel pass (20 Euros onboard) and visit the islands - We went to Murano and Burano and explored the wonderful glass and lace making shops. Burano seemed to have more restaurants than Murano. The trip across the lagoon gives you a chance to see the islands from a different angle.The trip from Venice to Murano... More

Pretty on a sunny day from a water bus or taxi! People had warned us about the smell but the water seemed really clean and smelt fresh!

Murano is well worth a visit to see the Murano glass but watch out for the cheap and nasties and also we found some of the big commercial operators a little over the top. Keep exploring and you will find skilled and passionate workers like Giorgio Bruno who loves his work and his prices are not over the top. Also... More

Murano is disappointing and no better pieces or prices than on Venice. Burano buildings are good for photos. The churches on Torcello are unexpectedly good. Definately worth the visit and lovely green stroll to get to them.

A definite thing to do. One can purchase tickets on the dock, the day before you decide to go. This is more economical than booking through your travel agent. I do believe the tour people should allow more time on each island--45 minutes not enough.Murano had a glass blowing demonstation. Burano, the "lace island" many, many shops along the main... More

Genuinely a true gem. Venice is truly stunning. After having travelled extensively - though id enjoy the region and area. Much better than I had expected. A true masterpiece of Italy.

You have not seen anything yet if you haven't been on this jewel of an island! Go and keep taking photos, because you'd wish to take away with you every piece of this beauty which encompasses every imagination!

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.
