Venetian Lagoon Tours

If you haven't been to Venice, you might not realize that it's so much more than just a city laced with canals. It is, in fact, situated within a giant, Adriatic Sea-side lagoon that spans 19,305 square miles (50,000 square kilometers) and is home to loads of islands — the city of Venice occupies just some of them. The shallow-watered region in Italy was formed thousands of years ago, but it was man who shaped it into what you see today.

While here, travelers can hop on a sailboat or motorboat tour to visit Venice, of course, but also other islands, including Burano, famous for its lace and colorful buildings; Murano and its locally produced glass; and Torcello, the longest continually inhabited island in the region. Meanwhile, there are plenty more lagoon destinations, some quaint in their remoteness, others completely abandoned and all of them pretty spectacular.

Practical Info

Venice’s most popular islands can easily be reached from the city of Venice via numerous boat services and organized day trips. More remote islands are reachable by boat, as well, though may require a custom private tour.
