Burano is colorful and peaceful. It is about one hour boat ride from Venice. We like the colorful houses. It is quieter than Murano. It is a great place to take pictures of the canals.

Burano is a small island not far from Venice where all the houses are painted bright colours. It is a great place to take some wonderful photos. Cute shops, colourful houses and canals. It is very peaceful compared to Venice proper. Buying a water-bus pass ( 12 hours, 24 hours, 2 day or 3 day ) is the best way... More

Burano is so picturesque, full of brightly coloured houses sit alongside the canal. A lovely square with restaurants and pizzerias. It really is worth a visit.

We loved this island! It is very beautiful and has quaint shops selling silk. It is a better destination than Murano. We still found food prices to be high.

This is a stunningly beautiful island. The houses and canals are incredibly picturesque and I don't think it would be possible to take a bad picture here. The houses are colourful, the streets run at curious angles, and the canals permeate through the island. Each house is painted a different colour (all bright) and the opportunities to take photos are... More

We bought a 24 hour boat pass for 20 euros and travelled to the island which is so beautiful. The peace and tranquility after busy Venice is a welcome break. The colourful houses and little canals make it a picture postcard place to spend an hour or two.

I only had 50 mins in Burano (I took a Torcello, Murano and Burano half day tour) and man do I wish I had more time! I assumed there wasn't much to the place except for the colourful houses so I left the group and went and took pictures. I could have done that for hours! Afterward, I thought I... More

What a lovely place! We went to see this on our trip to Venice. It's about 40min with a waterbus to this Island and it is definetely worth while! If I were in Venice only one day I'll still go to see this. The little Island near Venice is the small Island where hand made lace is made. Each house... More

I was not that interested originally in stopping by at Burano, as lace is not my cup of tea. But I must say it is one of the sweetest little places I've been. The little rows of houses in bright colours down the small canals are a delight to walk down. Lot's of nice little shops and cafes. It was... More
