A nice little island and a good place to stay with good Resteraunts and bars along with hotels. I liked the idea of using the boats daily to get into Venice from different routes and the views are amazing as you approach!

You can use the Vaperetto but it’s not easy to work out if you’ve never been before. We were so glad to have someone to meet us at the airport. They then drive you to your water taxi which is around a 15 to 20 minutes... More
