We went out on the waterbus to Torcellow via Murano and Burano. Murano was as crowded as Venice but Torcello was quieter. We got out to the Lido one day but did not have time to explore. The islands are not great for wildlife but...More

Venice is great but let's face it it's a bit of a Tourist trap and can get very crowded We were in Venice for 4 days and felt after a couple of days we'd done most of the things San Marco, Guidecca and Castello had...More

You'll get around a lot quicker on a Vaparetto. A vaparetto is basically a BUS that travels on the water. There regular route with a time able just like the city bus you are used too. You can probably get to just about anything else...More

If it would be a choice of the only one place from everything to visit, I would go to see the Laguna di Venezia one more time!

Worth venturing out of central Venice for if that is where you are staying, stay for a meal at sunset looking out over the lagoon (recommend Da Alvise restaurant) and enjoy that too after visiting the other islands.

Over the years, we have arrived at Venice by car, train and plane. It's an amazing city regardless of how you get there. If you happen to be arriving by plane, you will note that the airport is several miles from the center of Venice....More

There are many places to sit and enjoy the sunsets or to sit and watch the boats going about their business. The water is not so clean with Venice using this a dynamic sewage system to flush away things. Try to get to Dorsoduro area...More

The light coming off the Laguna is so amazing it explains why Canelletto and other famous artists have painted it so often It is so different from any place I have been. A real mystery color and unforgetable.

By going to Murano and travelling on different water buses we were able to see so much of the island and especially the fantastic skyline of San Marco as we headed away from and then back to the island

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.
