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.

Wonderful island!

It was my first time on this island and I must say that it's fantastic! The day was sunny and so the colors were magnificent! A must to see!

A photographer's dream -- the buildings are painted many colors and most have hand made lace curtains at the windows. Of course it aims to sell to tourists, but it is also home to many people, with children in schools, people visiting shops. Our tour guide pointed us to one of the best lace shops and unfortunately the two women... More

A delightful, colorful island. Perfect for a nice lunch. One hour by boat from Piazza San Marco, but worths it.

We took a day trip to this place from Venezia and we totally had a great time going around the island. Try to make sure that you will arrive early or else it will be very crowded.

Interesting little island home of Venetian lace and a fishing community. Streets and canals bordered by multicoloured houses, apparently originating to guide the fishermen home. Many opportunities to purchase lace items and an interesting museum. Photographic opportunities abound making the island well worth a visit.

Fun visit and charming little town. Takes a little other to get to than Murano, but like it better. Less hustle. Beautiful brightly colored buildings. Nice place for lunch or a drink.

This was such a fun visit. The colors of the houses, particularly when reflected on the canals, was not only beautiful but great to photograph. There is a great artist that's near the vaporetto stop and you should buy her art that perfectly captures the color and look of the island...Nastasia Carraro

If, for any reason, you ever find yourself in Venice, you will be tempted to spend every minute exploring that unique place. But do whatever you can to spare a few hours so you can visit Burano, a small island in the Venice lagoon. The only way to reach it is by boat, 30-40minutes from Venice. One would be tempted...

It takes a while to get out to Burano, but it is incredibly rewarding. This island is known for lace making, but even if you have no interest in lace it is still very cute to see and walk around. The houses are vividly painted, and it feels like more more of a real neighborhood, with most of the tourist... More
