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 areas

Went on an Organised tour to the 3 islands in the lagoon - Murano; Burano; Torcello. Foggy morning trip but interesting stops on each island - Murano - glass blowing; Burano - lace and multi coloured housing; Torcello - ancient church and walk to/from boat landing. Torcello was very interesting to discover a peak population of 30,000 was now at... More

We booked this through Viator as an English speaking tour. One lady gave the entire trip in 5 different languages and we had a problem understanding her accent. Murano gave an exhibition of glass blowing that was interesting then takes you through its facility in an attempt to sell. Burano was a colorful and beautiful little town that we would... More

Experience the Great Murano Glass articles making. Know difference between authentic and duplicate Murano glass. Visit some of the best manufacturing facilities on this tiny island/ lagoon located away from main land. Take boat no 4.3 to take a 2-3 hrs grand tour of entire Venice.

After the culture of the city the boat trip round the lagoon is a bit of a let down. There is not much to see but it is quite interesting listening to the guided talking about the city itself and the issues with the water etc. Not a necessity and you're not missing out if you give this a miss

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 just 20 euros

My wife and I took a day long river boat ticket to travel over to Murano and Burano. A short journey to Murano to see the glass making factory. Worth a visit to see how the glass is made. We decided to buy a glass sculpture and found that there was quite a difference in prices for similar pieces. We... More

We travelled the Venice Lagoon many times during our visit, as were were staying on Lido. from the first time into the lagoon, on the car ferry to Lido, to our departure, we took so many photos just of this area. Fantastic!

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.
