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.

The colored homes of the city look like a movie scene, yet it felt more like a real community than Venice. Less crowded and slower paced. Shops had some quality merchandise that was a little different than what we had been finding. Tried a seafood set menu that usually would not be my choice of food, but it was delicious.... More

We made a last minute choice to visit Burano over Murano because of the hordes of tourists at the Murano vaparetto stop. What an excellent decision. The boat ride to Burano was relaxing and beautiful, to float past the other smaller islands that lay on the outskirts of Venice. Burano was colorful, quaint, less crowded and has the most beautiful... More

Took the water taxi and had a lovely time walking around Burano. Charming multi colored houses abound. You will take tons of pictures in this great little town. Perfect place to unwind from the chaos of Venice.

We visited Burano for a day visit, 2 weeks ago - took a vapperreto from Venice and changed at Murano. It's a quaint, pretty city with each house of a different colour.

The colourful buildings and canal streets. Very wheelchair accessible - were as Venice is not with all the stairs going over the canals. It was so peaceful and fun to walk aorund and met the people. We went on a day where it was raining - had the island almost all to ourselves.

It's most of to see islands when you go to Venezia. From the the big island of Venezia take a "vaporetto" to Burano island, is about 1:45 minutes ride.This island is full art crafts, excellent seafood restaurant and friendly people and colorful houses. Don't forget the gelato or ice cream..

My family and parents loved Burano. The buildings have a certain old charm about them, decorated with the most interesting of color palettes, so it's a feast for your eyes and for taking photos on a sunny day. Great place to stroll, enjoy the views, see the local way of life and oh, yes, there is also the lace that... More

Excellent alternative to the busy Venice. Lace Museum is a must, then you should be prepared to spend a bit. The trip itself to the island is pleasant, especially if you go back to Venice at sunset.

Don't miss it when visiting Venice! A unique and colourful delight for the eyes! Really charming and a quick vaporetto trip away from Venice, it's a great place to have lunch and take a stroll right after.

You can get a boat directly from Venice or if you go to Muranoyou can take the biat from there. The houses in Burano have beautifulky coloured exterior walls that liven the place. Burano is famous for handmade goods - mostly made of lace. Shop around before you decide to buy ad there are loads of shops and a multitude... More
