Beautiful, colourful....just such a picturesque island. When getting off the waterbus you're greeted by the sea of colours coming from all the beautiful properties. Lots of cafes, restaurants and gorgeous little vintage shops to visit amongst all the stunning colours on the island. Hugely recommend if doing a Venice weekender

Borano is about half hour from Morano by water bus you are still able to get there on your daily pass. The Island itself is famous for lace making and you can still see the ladies hand making table cloths and other items and are reasonably priced for the quality. All of the houses are painted different colours and are... More

A very beautiful and colourful place. A great place to walk with your girlfriend or your wife. Enjoy a view of Burano. A place with a lot of parked boat on the "streets". Take a lot of pictures and enjoy your trip. It worth it.

Every photo is more beautiful than the last. One of the most picturesque and colorful places I have ever seen. The artistry of the lace production and products is phenomenal.

Take the boat here for a peaceful feeling of true Venice life. Leave the tourists behind and wander. Meet and see locals and how they live. Take the best pictures of your trip.

On a Sunday in August, after a delicious and relaxing picnic by the water on the nearby, bucolic and almost-deserted Torcello, we took a vaporetto to Burano for a post-prandial stroll along the canals lined with pastel painted, stuccoed houses and shops. Burano was a welcome respite from the crowds being herded through Venice and we took the opportunity to... More

Don't miss a visit out to this small interesting island, with its colourful fisherman's homes, bizarre leaning tower and lace making shops. Also a few nice little places to eat or drink, if you get the time. I suggest you ditch the organised tours which also include Murano and Torcello, and make the visit by waterbus, that way you stay... More

We were in Venice for four days and though I agree with a prior reviewer that the main street is bustling with tourists and T-shirt shops, nonetheless it is still a place for a quick visit to at least see the colorfully painted houses, the lace shops (which it is known for) and a quick stroll through the neighborhood. There... More

It's worth a vaparetto ride for 45 minutes to Burano, just to get away from the crowds. A wonderful photo opportunity whatever the season. We married in Venice in May 2012 and on the day asked our photographer to include shots taken in Burano. We have revisted this quaint island twice since, the colourful buildings put a smile on your... More

If you have time while visiting Venice, take the water taxi out to Burano as it was a highlight for us. It only takes 40 minutes and we stayed on the island for one hour and took amazing photos...well worth the time.
