Need help deciding on Venice Day Trip.

Jump to last reply

I am hoping for some informed advice from the great Fodorite community.
In October my wife and I will be in Venice for the first time for a full 4 days. We have decided, with the time we have available, we want to devote one day to a trip outside of Venice.
Originally Murano and Burano seemed like very good options to see a bit more of the Venice lagoon and islands, even though we're not planning on buying any glass and know they are very touristy.
However, the more we read about what's available within a reasonable train ride we start thinking we may enjoy Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Treviso, or some other reachable place even more than the touristy islands.
So, I'm asking for help and advice. What have you enjoyed in the above areas? What do you recommend for a day trip? Maybe Murano and Burano are a "must do"?
A little about us: We are in our forties, love beautiful "places" (history / architecture / churches / destinations), love to just walk around and experience an area, see the sites, take some awesome pictures and have a nice lunch (my wife made me add that bit about lunch). We do enjoy art and see as many museums as we can, but wouldn't take a special trip to see one. Not into shopping or buying "I heart Italy" t-shirts.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
