* Bridge of Sighs and Prisons
* Grand Canal Cruise - Take #1 boat from Piazzale Roma and download Rick Steve's free audio tour
* Rialto Bridge
* Academia
* La Salute Church
* San Giorgo Maggiore Church - Best view from it's tower
* Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari
* Scuola Grande di San Rocco
* Church of San Zaccaria
* Jewish ghetto
* Ca' d'Oro

I think I would select a few of the many churches on the list based on your specific interests. You just can;t get to all of them.

As for the islands, Murano is just an excuse to sell glass (unless you are mad to see glass blown) and while Burano is cute the real winner is Torcello. The latter has an ancient church with original Byzantine mosaic work. This is where the Venetians hid in order to survive when the barbarians poured over the Alps into Italy and it has a very unique other worldly feeing that makes it worth while.
