Murano Canals and Boats

from: Fisheye Venice

photo

Museo Vertrario photoMurano is a great place for boatspotters: Its canals are filled with motoscafi, water taxis, barges, and small boats of every kind. We took the photo above as a barge carrying gas bottles roared away from a quay near the Santi Maria e Donato basilica and the Museo Vetrario or Glass Museum (see inset photo), which was founded in 1861 and is one of the island's tourist highlights. Entrance is free with the Venice Museum Pass; the museum is closed on Wednesdays.
