The wider lagoon is well worth exploring.

Very fortunate to stay on the 'Michelangelo' for several nights last Spring. Embarked when it was moored at Autorita Portuale Venezia, opposite the Western end of Giudecca, and... read more

Very fortunate to stay on the 'Michelangelo' for several nights last Spring. Embarked when it was moored at Autorita Portuale Venezia, opposite the Western end of Giudecca, and watched sunset over the industrial area over the lagoon on the first night. The following morning at sunrise sailed through the Giudecca canal and past St. Mark's before mooring at Riva dei... More

I stayed in Venice for 2 days, and I managed to explore the Lagoon. we got a taxi boat because of shortage of time. If you stay in Venice more than couple of days, you may save money by using vaporetto. If you take Vaporetto make sure you go to the right direction and not to the the wrong direction.When... More

After having been shuffled around like cows in a herd in tourist heavy Venice, taking a water taxi (Vaporetto) to Murano or any other island in the lagoon to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice is a very good idea. There are some awesome views to experience on the lagoon. Murano island's glass makers offer a free... More

If you fly to Venice, take a (boat)taxi to the city. The boatride will stick in your mind till you die.

In Venice we always devote a day to go to Torcello and visit the Churches. The largest has the most spectacular mosaics of the 9-10th century perfectly preserved in a most impressive Church. Walking from the jetty to the Church on a lovely footpath, along a small canal in almost complete silence is a real treat after the bustle of... More

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
