As far as day trips go, Murano is definitely one of the best. On previous Italian excursions, I had simply gazed past the vaporetto railing to the orange-walled San Michele, but this time we made the spontaneous decision to visit the peaceful island. It was truly a gorgeous and thought-provoking experience.
Following the hour spent on San Michele, we explored Murano and hunted for the perfect home decor and jewelry items. The shops were charming and the day passed splendidly walking along the canals. Definitely a successful day!
