I took the Vaporetto to Burano - stopping in Mazzorbo and walking the final half a mile over the bridge. It was incredibly pretty with all the brightly painted buildings but very touristy with most shops selling tourist gifts and souvenirs.

Burano is a must visit when visiting venice, it is about 45 minute boat ride to the island but well worth it, the buildings are all painted different colours, the little shops a lovely, just sit have a coffee and a pizza and watch the world go by. Stunning.

A good place to eat, shop and sight see. Easily an all day experience. Don't forget to buy some Burano Cookies. Try Palmisano Carmelina at Via Galuppi, 335!

THis is a beautiful place. The houses with their colour coordinated exteriors are amazing to see. The people are very friendly and we enjoyed just wandering aroun taking in the sites. We took the ferry from Venice and it was also a nice trip out past Murano as well.

A short boat ride from bustling Venice. Very pretty little island with lots of very old bright coloured buildings. The lace is superb and some shops have lacemakers working so you can see it in action. Great food at Gatto Nero (black cat). Don't use the public toilets in town. There is a psycho girl in there trying to rip... More

I don't know what to say that can adequately describe how beautiful the island of Burano is. We went here on the first day of our holiday and it was the perfect start to our trip to Venice. Just a 20 minute vaparetto ride from Venice it's definitely worth a visit if you've got more than a day in Venice.... More
