    Another favourite of mine is a day excursion to Burano and then to Sant'Erasmo. Many people usually pick Murano (because of its glass blowing factories) and many times opt to leave Burano out. Big mistake: Burano is one of the most peaceful and beautiful islands you will ever see. And don't be put off by the fact that the vaporetto ...

It houses an old lazzaretto with a history that is the subject of much folklore. Getting to it is a bit tricky, as is getting around it, but ...

    Gondola Service

    56 reviews

    On my most recent trip, I was finally able to take my first ever Gondola ride. I have to say, this is an incredible way to see the city from within the canals. Touristy, obviously, but fun and informative as well.
