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 Island is reachable by Vaporetto from Venice in about 40mn. It's worth doing Murano and Burano the same day. You can admire a beautifully colourful houses and lunch on delicious fish and seafood since it's a fisherman island. I would Highly recommend.

Get off the bus at Mazzorbo (the stop before Burano) and walk over footbridge. The absolute silence is almost deafening! Ignore the 'lace' shops - either astronomic price or imported shoddy. Good bars and modest prices. would have loved to go into 'leaning tower' church but it closes 12 - 3. Crazy house colours. Combine with visit to Torcello.

What a wonderful day trip from Venice this is. Burano sure is an eye feast - so many beautifully colored houses, small canals and decorated shops to wander about in, far from the Venice crowds. Easily accessed by public water buses from Venice, or via a day tour. Numerous restaurants in which to have a fabulous fresh seafood lunch, many... More

Beautiful magical island, full of life, scenery, colorful houses, vibe, great restaurants and art, everywhere you turn. all of this so close to Venice- a boat away from the city or the other islands near by.

A trip to Burano well worth it. Pretty painted houses lining the water front. Island of lace, plenty of shops places to eat. Enjoyable to walk around. Further away from Venice than anticipated.

This is the island famous for handmade lace. Looks nice, but close your eyes and the stores, restaurants, etc. could be in Venice. Nice 1/2 diversion from walking around Venice. Scenic ferry ride over and inexpensive. Good food.
