The No 7 will take you from San Zaccaria round past the Arsenale and on to Murano, a lovely trip to do to give you more of a feeling of the size of the Lagoon.

Murano is easy and quick to get to once you have worked-out the vaparetto system. Focussed on glass and you need to sort out the wheat from the chaff, but something for every pocket. Lots of restuarants and not as crowded as the main Venice...More

Don't pay through the nose for a tour. Read up on the parts of the lagoon and then use the excellent vapooretti service. Venice is a working city so has to have an excellent network or water buses. A day pass for unlimited use is...More

about half hour by ferry
Hi Is it possible to do justice to Murano, Burano and Torcello in an afternoon (making use of our 24 hour travel pass!) or should we just concentrate on one or two? If we can do it, has anyone got a suggested itinerary complete with vaporetto numbers and timings please? From Piazzale Roma. Thank you

I am in a hotel on the grand canal, I was going to book a trip to murano and burano but it seems you can get to them without booking a tour. Is it possible to go in the places and pay or do you have to be on a tour

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.
