Buy a day ticket and you can visit Murano, Burano and Torcello. Also the Lido. Reserve one day for this.

If you are visiting Murano, Burano and Torcello you will see this body of water. You can take different boats to reach these islands but vaporetto is the usual and cheapest way to get there.

Decided to use the vaporetto to visit the islands of Murano and Burano. Loved Burano which was very picturesque with balamory style painted houses. There are some art shops and plenty of small shops selling Murano jewellery and items made of lace. The Murano jewellery beads and animals are often being made in the shops and you are welcome to...

If you go anywhere but the main island(s), you're going to see a bit of the lagoon anyway - enjoy it! Try for good weather, though - wind with no sun might be cold. And the water choppy. Again, a Vaporetto is the easiest and cheapest way to get around.

A must to understand the Venetian psyche! It is a delight to explore all the islands surrounding Venice, at any time of the day, and to realize that Venetians were above all sailors and merchants dealing with the sea all year long. Do visit the small Naval museum, near Arsenale, a few steps from Piazza San Marco

Venezia is the best of all and Murano is just a little Venice with a lot of glass factory's. La Giudecca deserve a visit.

We took a half day tour of Murano, Burano and Torcello and it was beautiful. Sadly, our time in Venice was marred by torential downpours and flooding, but this 1/2 day tour was just a bit overcast. A word to the wise...buy lace scarves in Burano. I only bought one and am kicking myself because it is so beautiful I... More

We visited several island in the lagoon - those, that are reachable by vaporetto. 18 EUR for 12 hour vaporetto (and bus) ticket is not on the cheapest, but there are nice pathways along chanels on these islands, where you rarely meet anyone. For me, such walk can be much more romatic compared to crowded narrow streets in Venice itself.... More

Murano & Burano touristy with glass/lace shops (beware Chinese fakes!) but unspoilt canal walks lovely esp. Burano with its multi-coloured houses. Torcello very special - it was the first island settled but nearly all the inhabitants left later to found Venice leaving an original 7th century Byzantine church next to a huge cathedral with massive mosaics which I liked far...
