Tips

  • If you have a few days in Venice, take advantage of your multiple day vaporetto/water bus ticket and take the chance to relax and visit the iconic islands of Murano and Burano. Here you’ll find a slower, more traditional life style with amazing colors that bring these islands to life. If you need vaporetto tickets you can get them from MyPass Venezia.
  • Enjoy the views of Venice and the lagoon as the vaporetto trip will take you outside the main island so you can take in the full beauty of Venice.
  • For authentic Murano Glass don’t buy from unreliable vendors. For superior quality and a guarantee of quality visit Murano for a Venetian souvenir that supports traditional Murano artisan glass makers.
