While in Venice take time out to visit this beautiful and colorful island. One our best day trips we had was to go to Burano Island! The house make great photographs to hang on anyone's wall! Nice and easy walk around the island even for older folks! A must see place when you come to Venice!

Burano is worth the long ferry (vaporetto) ride from San Marco because you experience a quaint, colorful town that is not as touristy as the others. Multi-colored buildings and houses greet you and make sure to venture off the beaten path so you can really get immersed into the local culture. Restaurants are a bit spends but the food is... More

Really pretty place to visit with multi-coloured houses. Lovely restaurants and the locals friendly. We did three islands and it was a 4 hour trip. You can book at the kiosk near St. Mark's Square at the side of the Grand Canal. Cost 20 euros, which included an excellent guide.

The charming little island of Burano has won my heart. Just off Venice and a little jaunt from the blown-glass home of Murano, this quaint and colorful little village is not to be missed. A pleasant vaporetto ride took us to Murano, where we walked down the main canal toward the lighthouse. (These were the directions given to us to... More

I wish we had gone early in the morning. We were too tired, so didn't get there until almost noon and shared the tiny island with lots of other tourists, but it was still beautiful. Small canals, and charming houses, a large park with benches (oh thank you, yes I'd loooove to sit for a minute!) and while only a... More

Cruised into Venice and went on a tour to Murano followed by Burano should have settled just for Burano what a place just to wander, fantastic colours everywhere and the fast food pizza takeway was excellent value unlike some of the places in Venice, definately on my revisit list.

Every year we visit Venice once or twice and this island is still on top of our list. Staying always at the Lido island the cruise to this island is about an hour enjoying the laguna and the views. We prefer Burano because its more relaxed than Murano where sometimes it can be very crowded.

Burano is a small island in the Venetian Laguna. We travelled there by Vaporetto from Venice and spent a wonderful morning strolling around town and taking in the colorful buildings and charming shops. My wife loves to bargain and she found a lace decorated tablecloth which she bought after spirited haggling. Lacemaking is the local cottage industry on the island... More
