Excursion to Burano, Murano and Torcello, one of the best excursions in Venice
Taking a vaporetto or a boat to visit the islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello are one of the best things to do in Venice. You can take the vaporetto in various places in the city, but if you are looking for a central location, there is a stop near San Marcos Square called San Zaccaria.
You will take an hour to reach the island of Murano and during the journey, you will pass by the island Saint Michele, also known as the Island of the Dead, for its cemetery.
In Murano, you can see how their world-famous crystal works and stroll through little Venice to the lighthouse and from there board another vaporetto to Burano, where in 40 minutes you will enjoy what is our favorite island, in which its painted houses stand out of bright colors, the symbol of the island.
If you have time left after these visits, you can also take another vaporetto to Torcello, the oldest island, 5 minutes from Burano.
Another option to save time is to book a boat tour with a guide in Spanish.
Visit the Doge’s Palace
The Ducal Palace located at one end of St. Mark’s Square is one of the places you have to see in Venice. This gothic building has impressive pink marble facades, which are spectacular.
Inside you can visit sites such as the Scala d’Oro, the Duke’s party, the armory, the Great Council Chamber and the Bridge of Sighs, in which the condemned gave their last breath of freedom before entering the prison. The visit ends in the dungeons, from which the famous Casanova escaped.
A good option to skip the long lines and make the visit with a Spanish guide is booking one of these tours:
The Vaporetto will allow you to travel the Grand Canal and get closer to the islands of the Venetian Lagoon, although if you want to go through the narrowest channels you will have to choose the gondola.
The gondola ride is one of the most romantic and best tours of Venice since it allows you to enjoy the beautiful corners of Venice that are only accessible by this means of transport. Normally a walk of about 40 minutes can cost about 80 euros, a small whim that we loved.
To get a gondola, it is best to get away from the most touristic places since the gondoliers are hard negotiators and, depending on the demand, it is often better and cheaper to have the tour booked with one of these tours:
Visit the Basilica of San Marcos
One of the must-see places in Venice is the Basilica of San Marcos, the most important church in Venice. Of Byzantine architecture, this religious temple was built in 828 to keep the relics of St. Mark the Evangelist. The interior is dominated by gold and highlights the mosaics of the dome of the Ascension, the altarpiece the Pala d’Oro behind the altar, the treasure and the museum. In the museum, you can see the originals of the Horses of San Marcos since their copies are those that are located on the facade of the basilica.
The entrance to the basilica is free, although you have to pay to see the treasure, the museum or the Pala d’Oro. If you want to save the queue and learn more about the history of the basilica with a guide in Spanish you can book these interesting guided tours.
