We love the Lagoon. It is best to take a water taxi or a cruise, but even just looking at it can be enough. Like all of Venice it is memorable & so very different.

I took a laguna sunset tour and loved it. First, you dispel the heat by being on the water. You might see a water ambulance or fire crew or just a rowing crew out there. And you can see the Lido and other islands and...More

Aside from coming in from the airport via water bus, coming into Venice on a ship is absolutely stunning. The views are magnificent as you approach Venice & the other islands from the Adriatic Sea.

This is such a beautiful place. The water taxi up and down the Canal and Lagoon is the best way to enjoy the views!

The Laguna never looks the same way twice, varying with the weather, the amount of water traffic and the tide but it is always fascinating. We took an organised trip around the lagoon, stopping off at three of the islands and each stage again offered...More

We spent our last evening on a boat trip around the lagoon and were blown away by the lovely views. No crowds, just lovely houses and churches, seen as they were built to be appreciated, from the water.

Visited with friends. Walked down the promenade at sunset, stood on the bridge overlooking the lagoon, wonderful view and absorbing the history of this magical place was a delight.

I think the master glass blowing demonstration in one of the factory on the island of Murano is free. But you need to check the time when demonstration is given to the public.
