We visited Venice, Burano, Murano and Torcello in march. Breathtaking view, charmful, wonderful…I can not imagine to find the words to really describe what makes this part of Italy so magical. It’s like going into a dream and you just wake up during your flight back to home <3
4 days & 4 nights
It is the perfect duration (3 days in VENICE & 1 day to visit burano, torcello & murano with a cruise)
Day 1: Arrival in Venice
Find the perfect place to stay in Venice by booking in advance. Do not stay in San Marco area if you want to find peace of mind after one entire day trip. Cannareggio was good to us because it is not far from touristic attractions by foot but it remains quiet and peaceful and very authentic. nice terrace where you can relax and take a spritz.
Walking tour in Cannareggio and the heart of Venice : St. Mark’s Square. Just there, you can visit with a guide (or without) the Doge’s Palace and the St Mark Basilica.
Then, let’s go to the famous Rialto bridge where you can have a nice view of the Canal.
Visit the Castello area if you want to go on with your touristic tour.
Day 3: Cruise to Murano, Torcello & Burano
Book a tour to Murano, Torcello & Burano. The best way to see all these small pictural islands in one day. Everything is so cute and charmful. Burano is definitely our fav. you can also take the regular Vaporetto (No 12 vaporetto from Fondamenta Nove). Touristic center will give you all information !
Enjoy a night at the rooftop of Hilton on Giudecca. They offer free sea shuttle to get there and go back. What an adventure !
Day 4: Other Venice areas
Take the vaporetto for a nice tour in Grande Canal. Plenty art museum or palace may be visit during your day trip. You can also book to see the “Fenice”, the famous opera of Venice.
You can also take a tour to Dorsoduro (very nice & relax atmosphere) or Santa Croce, other less touristic areas in Venice.
Streets of central Venice at night < when tourists are gone…
where we stayed 4 nights in Cannaregio. This area is authentic and quiet. Believe me you could use quiet after a day visiting Venice. San Marco is so crowded, in some streets, you cannot walk, you just make your way through the crowd! Foscari palace was just in the perfect location and a very nice place to stay and relax.
