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 most beautiful place in Italy

We spent a day here. Its very small, but so beautiful! We ate and read books under trees. We drank in the sun and loved every second of our trip to Burano.

When you get off the plane, buy a citypass Venezia Unica that will cost approx 25 euros. This will give you travel on all the buses & boats for a long weekend. Much better than buying individual times. Can get to Murao & Burano too.

Burano is famous for its lace and houses a textile museum that my wife wanted to visit , so I was not expecting to be blown away by a fantastic village.

At some places I felt like in a dollhouse movie - it was so picturesque, colourful and cozy. If you plan a trip to Burano and want to visit the Lace museum, please check its business hours - e.g. it does not work on Mondays.

We travelled to Burano on the Vaporetto [water bus] from Venice. It took about 30 minute - an interesting journey with lovely views and photo opportunities. The island itself is stunningly beautiful. The multi coloured cottage on the edges of small canals are beautiful. The reflections of the houses in the water is stunning. The camera will be on overdrive!... More

Water Bus 12 from Murano about 1 hour from Venice. When you get off at Fondamente Nove you turn right into the lovely Mazzorbo Vineyard that leads to the town of Burano. Most people get off the net stop Burano but you miss the vineyard. While in town stop at Dalla Olga and say hello to Daniela. Have lunch at... More
