Murano Island it about 3/4 of a mile north from the main part of Venice. When the ferry arrived at Murano we got off and did a short tour through the island, following one of its main canals. Murano is sort of like a suburb of Venice and the island is best known for its glassmaking industry. The island gets a lot of visitors, though it’s nowhere near as crowded as the touristy parts of Venice. At one of the island’s bridges we briefly stopped to eat some snacks and then continued along until we got to the end of the canal. From there we made our way over to another ferry terminal to catch a ride deeper into the lagoon.
