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.

Spent 50 minutes in a waterbus to reach this place. Easy to get there. A very small Island that you can walk across in only 10 minutes. Many shops, restaurants and a lot of houses to enjoy with all the colors!

From plaza roma or santa lucia, take no. 3 vaporetto to murano and then from murano take no. 12 that will take you to burano. It's a very picturesque island, the houses are beautiful and if you like shopping for murano glasses- do it in burano, its mich cheaper! The famous italian lace is found in burano too but its...

We went here on a spur of the moment decision, but what a cheerful place! Go early because the stores close early, but we did enjoy walking around the colorful "streets" in Burano!

Famous for its multicolored buildings and some of the best handmade lace in the world this small island is the gem of the Veneto. You can watch locals go about their daily routines or shop the many wonder shops and restaurants in the main town square. Well worth the day trip for a change from the crowds in San Marco.

Not too many tourist in Murano , few in Burano, and nearly alone in Torcello . Torcello is 5' by Vaporetto from... More

What a lovely place with colorful houses, little streets, restaurants, shops selling beautiful lace products typical for the island. You need 2 boats to get there. One to Murano and there you need to take another one to Burano. It's more worth to buy a day pass for 20 euro than to buy single tickets. The journey from Piazza di... More

What a fantastic place to spend the day.....just walking around everywhere on the island and enjoying the colourful houses and tiny bridges crossing tiny canals was amazing. The local handicrafts of lace were beautiful. The boat ride out to the island was exciting. It was a short day for me, and I recommend going first thing in the morning and... More

If you want to escape the heat and crowds of Venice, why not spend a couple of hours on Burano ? Not much to see, but its lovely to walk around and see the colorful houses, and have a nice meal. Im not sure how the locals enjoy the hordes of tourists taking selfies infront their home though...
