Discovering Venice in two days
Murano and Burano Islands
On the second day we took a boat Vaporetto in San Marcos square. Previously we acquired a full day ticket that includes all the routes throughout the day. Our destination is the islands of Murano and Burano
During the trip to the island of Murano, (famous for its glass sculptures) you can enjoy the views of Piazza San Marco, Palazzo Ducaly and the Lido of Venice.
We arrived in Murano and noticed that in architecture, it is very similar to Venice, but smaller. It also has bridges and channels and the same charm. We walk through the streets enjoying the shops that sell all kinds of objects and sculptures of glass and crystal.
You can also visit the Glass Museum and the churches of: Chiesa dei Santi Maria e Donato and the Chiesa di san Pietro martire ( see map & Pics)
Back at night, we could enjoy the same views in the morning but with the special charm of the night lighting of Venice. For the end of the day, we had dinner in one of the restaurants of the Piazza San Marcos.

The main public transportation means are motorised waterbuses (vaporetti) which ply regular routes along the Grand Canal and between the city’s islands. The only gondole still in common use by Venetians are the traghetti, foot passenger ferries crossing the Grand Canal at certain points without bridges. Other gondole target tourists on an hourly basis.
The Venice People Mover (managed by ASM) is a cable-operated public transit system connecting Tronchetto island with Piazzale Roma. Water taxis are also active. Venice in two days
