The Lagoon surrounds the whole of Venice and has various islands dotted around it. So a review more of options than the lagoon itself. Definitely worth getting on the water and seeing Venice from the lagoon - or of course visiting some of the other...More

The Venice Lagoon is a hub of activity from business and tourist traffic, fishing, and even groups training for boat races. We took a private water taxi from and to the airport and was treated to an impromptu tour enroute. There are tours and water...More

Visiting all of the expanse of the entire Lagoon of Venice is well beyond what a Tourist can do in our time allowed, as the Lagoon comprises nearly 100 Islands, the best known & namesake is that of Venice. We visited the Big 3 outer...More

The Venice lagoon is the supporting waterway in Venice where you will find the smaller islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello. You can also get to places like the Lido. As we had the Vaporetto pass, we explored the lagoon visiting the smaller islands. You see...More

I know this review is bucking the tide of reviews heaping enthusiastic praise on the Venice lagoon but I found it to be just another body of water separating some islands that are worthy of visits. We took the ferries to Murano and Burano which...More
