Sadly no George Clooney in sight !!

Lived sailing across the Laguna but despite us going back and forth several times we didn't see George Clooney! Stunning views nevertheless.

Yet another beautiful sight in Venice. If you especially love the sea and water, this will be extra special. Some great views from the Lagoon/Laguna and really a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Grab some wine and enjoy the views here!

Amazing to see how this city is put together. You can understand why they built it where they did to protect themselves from marauders of the day.

We took a Hop on Hop off water taxi tour and the views were stunning. We visited Murano and saw an actual artisan blowing glass. It usually costs 5 euro per person to see. On the way back we were in the Lagoon.

Venice is the lagoon and thanks to the water buses and a pass you can travel to most of the islands and places of interest with just the problem of breathing in to squeeze abord - they are popular. We enjoyed St Elena, St Pietro, Murrano, Guedecca, Lido, etc with great views and lots going on. St George abbey island... More

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 each has its own unique character.

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 to offer Consequently we made boat trips further afield to nearby Murano and the slightly...

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 you want on foot too. There are plenty of sidewalks and bridges so make sure... 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!

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.
