The lagoon in Venice has an incredible and impeccable view that amazed people from generation to generation. I am stunned by its ethereal nature beauty, enchanting culture and enriched history. This is where the story of Venezia begins, and for sure (hopefully, without the threat of the rise of sea level) it will last forever.

The laguna of Venice is like a busy motorway in some parts but it blows you away and is a must do experience either by vaporetto , taxi or even some of the hotel transfer boats

Really enjoyed our travels around the Venice lagoon on various vaporetto, visiting the main sites in Venice, Lido, Murano, Burano. It is nice to just watch the world go by on a vaporetto, get a vaporetto ticket for a few days, just ensure you get the ticket stamped by the machine before boarding the pier or vaporetto, reason you will...

Take a boat from S. Marco to Lido. Feel the laguna, watch the dance of the water and light. You will not find this experience anywhere else because this laguna is mystical.

Venice, a handful beautiful Islands scattered across the Laguna di Venezia, furrowed by canals which can only be crossed by foot or by boat; cars, bikes are forbidden. After heavy rainfalls combined with high tides the water level rises by about one meter forcing pedestrians to walk on raised walkways. To find your way through the spectacular historic center and...

Take a vaporetto tour of the grand canal & over to Murano. Very inexpensive if you buy the daily passes, and well worth the trip. These water "buses" can get very crowded, but we listened to the Rick Steves guide to the grand canal via our iphones, so had a narrated trip. Highly recommend!

The water, the water traffic, the islands and the buildings rising against the sky. Beautiful. TA doesn't like one to be brief!

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood 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.
