If you're visiting Venice, you'll be on the lagoon at some point. The vaporetti are very convenient to move between sites and the islands of Venice. I'd recommend purchasing an unlimited pass for the time you're in Venice to avoid having to reload your card for each ride. I was a bit intimidated traveling alone and not sure which routes to take and where to board, but after the first time riding a vaparetto, I picked it up really easily.

Once a year the canals in Venezia become reserved for an international event Vogalonga in which thousands of enthusiasts paddle around the city to give a tribute to its magnificent history and to generations of sailors entering of Europe via the port of venezia. The regata starts right in front of the Piazza di San Marco by a gun shot and ends in approximately the same place after crossing the city via Canale Grande. High credit needs to be give to the commite organising this big event. Being a memeber of a massive crowd of man-propelled ships, barcs, kayaks, rowing boats and many other types , as it moves along the island trying to make the best time is fantastic experience.

It depends where from you are going to Venice. But if you don't go by train straight to "city centre" then you will most probably come over there by boat just like I did. Beside that diesel stink of our boat I was enjoying my time out there smelling salty sea air with its typical breeze. Plus I saw some jellyfish! You can find it pictured at this review.

It's the big body of water that surround the islands that make up the city. When the tide is high, the lagoon can flood parts of the city. There are massive efforts underway to protect the city from sea rise. The lagoon's waters are not so clean and they are busy with lots of boat traffic.

The whole city is built on a lagoon so of course you are going to see this. Also, NO MOSQUITOES - my girlfriend hates them so is always looking, and we both saw maybe one or two over a 4-day visit. Who knows where they have migrated to this August??!

The Venice lagoon is very large. It stretches some 60 km from the northeast at Jesolo to Chioggia in the south. The island with the old city of Venice is about halfway. Due to the sediments of rivers flowing into the Adriatic sea here, most of the lagoon is shallow (approximately 10m). Dredged channels ensure vessels can sail through the lagoon especially near Venice. When the tide is low you can observe vast areas with mud flats.

Most tourists are attracted by the string of islands that border the lagoon and mark the Adriatic coast line. Of course Venice, but also islets like Murano and the Lido are popular. You can get a good impression of the lagoon by walking from Mestre on the mainland along the causeway to Venice (4 km walking right through it).

Visit Murano, Torcella and Burano by boat. A great afternoon, well spent for Euro20 p.p. Experience the old glass-blowing skills of craftsmen. Take a gentle stroll to the Basilica on Torello. Have a cold beer on Burano. Be astonished at the size of the Venetian Laguna.

So surreal to be there versus seeing Venice from movies, TV , or print material. We were 5hwew a couple of days after Venice had to raise the dam sue to high waters. Italy and Venice had serious flooding in May 2023. Made us appreciate how fragile Venice is. Did a water bus, gondola and sat in a cafe watching for hours. Nothing like it in the world.

An amazingly fantastic part of our world. Who dreamed of building a city in and around these beautiful waters? A great way of seeing the waters is by jogging around the islands in the early morning before the majority sightseers come out, or use the hop-on, hop-off Vaporetto water bus system. The latter is inexpensive but can get crowded.
