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.

Walking down to the seaside areas can be eye catching with the colorful building along the kernel. To be frank, the place is not quite well maintained. As a world destination, I would think the place can be upgraded to reflect a better quality the Venice as an overall. However, we took a less than hour time to explore the... More

A stunningly beautiful island to the north of Venice easily accessed by ACTV water buses. Spend an hour or two wandering around looking at the little canals and brightly painted houses. don't leave without buying some lace to bring home.

Burano is a pretty island in the northern part of the Venetian lagoon. Famous for its artisan lace-making and for its candy-colored fishermen's houses, the island is a photographer's paradise. They have a leaning bell tower that would give Pisa a run for its money. A walk through the main street is delightful.Blend in an enjoy this beautiful little paradise.

I would absolutely recommend a visit to Burano ! It's a small fishing village with the most gorgeous multi coloured houses - approx a 45 minute trip from Venice ! They also have the most amazing lace - something they specialise in ! If you were to pick one island out of Murano and Burano I would pick Burano -... More

I visited Burano because of the wonderful reviews here! I didn't find it worth the visit at all. Getting down from the water bus, i was welcomed by really foul smells first thing. I visited in Nov, which is low season. The turquoise water and colorful houses as seen in pictures on the internet looked all dull in reality. It... More

This island is one of the best in the Venetian Lagoon, it is very picturesque and not as busy as Venice. A few hours is enough to see the whole island and the Vaporetto service runs every 15 minutes from/to Fondamente Nove. Highly recommended.

This archipelago is four tiny islands connected by charming white-picket bridges. It truly is a paradise for the snap-happy. This community thrives from intricate lace-making, so you are in luck if you are in the market for beautifully crafted clothes, table linens, or tapestries.

Short 15 minute cheap boat ride from Venice. Quiet, great restaurants, beautiful lace shops, and just enough history. If you come to Venice you must come here

Recently my husband and I revisited Burano and Murano. The color, the glass and the charm are still there. Well worth the side trip because the boat there is an experience in itself.

I loved Venice for sure but on my trip to visit the three different Islands, Burano was definitely my favorite. So much that we asked the captain of the boat to leave us there on our way back to Venice and he did!! It was a great & unplanned day long visit in Burano. I recommend expending a whole day... More
