It is a good way to walk, or better, navigate thru the lagoon and see how big is the island. You are going to see others islands and local habits like walk at the park (giardini), the hospital and the water ambulances, the marina.... it has a lot to see

We went on the tour of the three islands. Was good for the first time there but when we return will take a water taxi to Burano to have more time there. Murano and Tercello were ok but much preferred Burano.

It is worth paying for a guided trip round the lagoon there is so much history and interesting detail on the various locations a commentary is worth the extra

We wanted to see Burano in particular and then found a tour for a very reasonable price that took us to Murano and Torcello, also. We didn't have much time at any of the places, but just enough to wander, take some photos, have something to eat or drink. Burano was so lovely - I would go back there!

Venetian lagoon is really an interesting place. It is not really a "natural" place. Human beings have lived here for thousands of years and have changed this environment shaping it to suit the needs of a big human community thas has been close to 200.000 people. Nevertheless it is wonderful, It ia place where sustainable human activities have shaped the... More

Take a trip on the "waterbus" around the lagoon to visit Murano or Burano, a must if visiting Venice. Stand out side to get the full benefit of the lagoon rather than sitting inside with the other sweaty tourists. Get a day ticket for 20 euro and if you know you are coming more than 1 day you can get... More

this is beautiful island - 50 min water bus ride to the island. Jump on bus to Murano (glass making) and then Burano (famous for lace). Burano is full of colourful houses along the canals, the people are friendly and its just lovely.

Although the lagoon looks fabulous during the day time, it also looks spectacular at night from one of the public water transport boats. Travelling up the grand canel late evening on a vaporetto is beautiful with all the glittering lights and spectacular buildings and then to finish at the lagoon is breathtaking. It's a 20 min ride from Piazzale Roma... More

Venice Lagoon has numerous islands to explore for its rich history of local craft making activity and delicious local specialties. Go to Murano for colorful glass art, Burano to get married, Torcello for its lacemaking, Venice to get lost in history and art, and Lido for good fun beach going!

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
