Whichever way, whether by vaporetto, water taxis or gondolas, one can always appreciate the beauty and charm of this magnificent city!

We took Alilaguna Tours out to see the islands and it was pretty awful (see my review under their name). That said it was a great cheap way to visit Murano, Burano and Torcello. To summarize Murano is a total tourist trap selling seriously overpriced glass tuk, Torcello is is a lovely peaceful island with religious ruins and a lovely... More

Once in a while Venice can get a little claustrophobic. And thats when you take the Valporetto (waterbus) to Lido or Murano. Its only a 10 minutes ride across the laguna but the views on to S. Marco are breathtaking.

Having done it nine times you need to know what a magical experience it is, rowing through the lagoon from San Mark's Basin via Sant' Erasmo to Burano, then returning through Murano, re-entering in the Canale di Cannaregio to the Grand Canal is wonderful. For me too many canoes, kayaks who get in the way of the traditional boats who... More

The islands of the Laguna are very different. All have a history of their own. and all are worth a visit

Dont miss to take a trip to Lido or another island in the lagune. It is the best way to see San Marco and if it is a sunny day, you will have some nice fresh air.

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.
