A really fine day out, we travelled to Murano (famous for its glass factories and glass-blowing) and Burano (famous for lace making and the beautiful multi coloured houses) and of course much much sailing on Laguna di Venezia.

From the campus of Management and Economics of the Ca' Foscari University in San Giobbe, (Cannaregio) you will have one of the nicest views of the Lagoon. From there you can enjoy a 20 minutes walk along the Fondamenta de Cannaregio and the Tre Archi...More

Cruising for over an hour through Venice islands for 17 euros each felt like a bargain. We had a very good tour guide who explained lots of historical facts I wasn't aware about like the Armenians or Jewish islands as well as the cemetery of...More

It was a island-hopping tour. I loved the Burano, beautiful place and colors! Island is often overlooked by visitors to the famous canal city...highly recommented!

You first experience Laguna di Venezia enroute from the mainland. There are numerous islands to explore within the area.Murano, Lido, Le Vignole, Giudecca and many more. Venice is more than just the main tourist destination. Use the Vaporetto to access the other islands.

Venice by boat, leaving to tour the water is magnificent. The vaporettas are convenient and fast. The scenery is great.

Response from jeannie g | Reviewed this property |
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'd prioritize them and do the one I am most interested first and then just see how it goes. My philosophy, even thought you didn't ask is that my vacation means not adhering to a schedule. Having a list of options and just... More
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.
