I have to agree with most other reviewers, this island is very attractive. The vaporetta journey is pleasant and although there were plenty of visitors it still felt relaxing, much more than Venice of course. The sun helps to show off the attractive colours of the houses along the canals. We were no different to the many others who just... More

This is the most beautiful Island, with its gorgeous multi coloured houses. It is so peaceful, and so different to main land venice and St. Marks Square! Take the water boat to Tocello and then to Burano and if you have time Murano (I did all three in one day with plenty of time to spare). You can go into... More

An absolute must visit if you are staying in Venice for a couple of days. It is easy to get to by Vaporetto from various stops in Venice, and it is a pleasant journey out to the island. The coloured houses are simply stunning. This is a unique and quaint town that was my favourite part of my stay in... More

A beautiful unusual island, unique very photogenic. Lovely just to wander and sit on the main street and have a coffee and people watch. We just came using our 72 hour vaporretto pass.

Taking a short thirty minute vaporetto ride from Venice will put you in Burano. The island is a cacophony of colors, quaint homes and lovely canal side restaurants. Still in April there were too many people for this artist to sit peacefully and paint - thus numerous photos were taken to satisfy the creative urge and memories for future paintings.... More

Burano is located approximately 45 minutes by Vaporetto from Venezia Santa Lucia train station. While touristic, it is not as crowded as Murano and less than ever Venice. The trademarks of this small island are the colorful small houses that characterize its small centre: simply awesome! Bright red, yellow, purple, blue and green constructions that creates an awesome effect. I... More

The houses are painted sunshine yellows, grassy green, vibrant blues amongst other colours. The waterways reflect the colourful buildings and when a boat goes past the water ripples leaving wonderful photogenic effects. This place is full of tiny restaurants and lunchtime is a leisurely affair taking in most of the afternoon. Burano must be one of the prettiest Islands in... More

Burano is a picturesque island worth visiting. 2-3 hours gives time to stroll the streets and explore the edges of the small town made famous by it's lace making industry. Possibly best visited as part of a typical "3 islands" tour to Murano, Burano and Torcello.

This is a 'must see' island if you have the time - a welcome escape from central Venice. It is about a 50 minute trip on the vaporetti ferry, popular and thus crowded in summer but attractive nonetheless with the highly colourful houses. The island is renowned for its lace-making and you can watch the ladies creating their stock in... More
