2 Days in Venice: Day 2
After going around Venice in your first day, your second day should be dedicated to visit Burano and Murano. Do you rememer I suggested you to buy the boat “Vaporetto” ticket for the number of days you stay in Venice?
That’s the time you can fully use your boat ticket. The ride for murano is included in your ticket. We personally took the boat for Burano form the following stop: F.te Nove.
You should walk to get to your stop because you can discover Venice and see different things you didn’t plan to visit. For example we saw the ambulances on the water when they usually are on the road!
Or a very nice square…
Burano island Venice
You have now arrived in Burano. Burano is famous for lace. Here you can find many shops where they sell lace handmade.
Burano is beautifull. In Burano all the houses have different colors. The reasons why the houses are so colorful it’s to be searched in its origins. Burano is in fact an island of fishermen who they could easely find their houses in the fog thanks to these colors.
In Burano go to see the bell tower. It’s slanting. Another tower of Pisa?
Murano is very famous for glass making art. The best thing to do in Murano is to go in a shop, ask to show you how the make glass and the go shopping!

The first thing you should do in Venice is buy the ticket for the boat “vaporetto”. You can find a ticket office in front of the train station. Do you remember I told you the best way to arrive in Venice is by train?

In your first day in Venice you should go:
- San Marco Square
- Rialto Bridge
Piazza San Marco Venice
What to do: Go around the square and visit the basilica.
What not to do:
- don’t take a coffe in a bar because it’s expensive.
- Ducal Palace: the palace is beautiful but a lot of time is needed to visit the palace. It’s better if you do it another day.
Ponte di Rialto
What to do:
- Take pictures: you can’t go back home without a Rialto Bridge picture.
- Buy what you need: on one side of the Rialto Bridge there is a supermarket. It’s a good shop to buy water or what you need.
