Just like the sailors of old, you’d recognize this Venetian island by the picturesque pastel-colored houses and buildings visible from its shores. Burano also is famous for its intimate lace, an art its people want to keep alive.

This place is great. I went here on a boat tour that also included Murano. The main attractions of this island are the colorful buildings. There is also a little store where you can buy handmade clothing, but it is fairly expensive. If you're in Venice, you should definitely come here and see the pretty houses.

We took a water bus from the centre of Venice as a half day excursion, took longer than we thought (about 1hr 1/4 each way) but was nice to have a change of scenery from the city. Really nice to just walk around, grab some food and sit by the canals. So picturesque.

Went to visit Murano and Burano via a vaporetti pass. What a great day! Even though the weather was very hot and humid, investigating the bright and colourful streets of Burano was sheer joy. If you have an eye for photography it's just a dream. Complete with a brilliant Restaurant on its small shores (El gatto Nero de ruggero )... More

Angular, brightly coloured houses surrounding canals and not quite square squares, looking like a housepainter from Oaxaca had staged a vista for a De Chirico painting. Unhurried, relatively peaceful compared to the other Venetian islands, and just a relaxing 30 minute ferry ride away.

With a water bus pass, travelled from Venice to Murano to see the wonderful glass. Had brunch in one of the lovely places available and explored the shops. Then took the water bus to Burano, famous for its lace and brightly coloured houses and shops. Both islands were lovely and I really enjoyed the day. Had a lovely late lunch... More

This is a wonderful island/town on the north side of the Laguna, about 45 min away from Venice by public transportation. It was and it still is a fisherman island with characteristic colorful houses. You can visit the island walking in less than one hour: there are nice churches, small canals, squares but the houses of bright color are the... More

This island with its quaint and gorgeous coloured houses was worth the 50 minute ferry ride. There isn't much else to do other than see the houses, but it was a lovely relaxing way to spend a couple of hours

It was suggested to us by our hosts to visit Burano rather than Murano, because our time was limited. It was a very hot afternoon, a long vaporetto ride and a crowded boat.....BUT...all was worth the ambience, the shops, the lace Museum,and the colourful site that greeted us as we meandered through the island. Our return boat ride was less... More

Lovely place to visit with only a quick boat ride from Venice. Lots of shops specializing in lace and some very nice restaurants. It is enjoyable just strolling down the canals and streets and taking in all the colorful homes. Worth the visit!
