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.

When walking through the streets, you forget about the real world. The sound of locals chatting, laughing, and most importantly, drinking fill the lightly salted air. It is truly an escape from the real world. You'll escape to a place where instead of walking down the cobbled streets between the brightly colored houses, you'll believe you're walking through the paint... More

There are two very excellent reasons to go to the Island of Burano. One is that they are famous for making lace. Two is that the houses here are painted in a rainbow assortment of colors, and it is hard to find two of the same shade. Burano is much more quiet than a lot of places in Venice. If... More

We only had an hour on our tour but easily could have spent much longer in this picturesque town. The vaporreto goes here so that might be a better option.

Took the tour and when we got close to the island it looked spectacular, thankfully it was a sunny day which made the island look even more beautiful. Once on the island we walked around taking in the breathtaking streets, all the buildings painted fantastic colours and the lace shops, which the island is renowned for, is fantastic and while...

Burano is easy to reach by public Transport. At the Vaporetto stop "Fundamente Novo" take N° 12 and after a stop at Murano and Torcello you will arrive at lovely Burano. The island is very small and very colourful. You need one hour, if you stay for lunch a little longer. By then you will have seen most of the... More

We took the vaporetto over to Burano and spent a wonderful day wandering around and shopping. Burano is a small island located in the same lagoon as Venice, but its charming colored houses and shops create an entirely different experience from that of Venice. Burano is famous for its beautifully crafted lace goods.
