  • Burano is a really nice beautiful island with nice colourful houses I found the locals to be quite friendly and helpful.  more »
  • Nice spot for a walk around. We came wit small kids - much more space for them to run around than Venice with a lovely backdrop for us.  more »
  • If you are tired of the crowd surrounding constantly Venice, think of spending a few hours to walk calmly away from crowds and photographers among the narrow streets of this pretty little island. A leaning Bell Tower acts as guardian to a well-kept square with shops of specialties and the Lace Museum. Relaxing to walk through the canals surrounded by small houses from colorful colors. At a glance ... A peaceful and colorful little Venice to soak up the atmosphere of the Venetian Lagoon.

  • Beautiful Island just off Venice. You have to get an all-day boat ticket when visiting this place; you can purchase this from the ticket shops which are normally located around the drop off points on Venice. Once you arrive to Burano, your attention will go straight to the colourful fisherman houses, they are the main attraction to this place and also the little canal which runs through the Island. I had a lovely time just getting lost in the little side streets and the walk by the canal was relaxing. The locals in Burano are friendly and welcoming, also very helpful for when you get lost! We sat at a pizza restaurant by the canal once our feet were aching and enjoyed a spritz, definitely would recommend to do the same and relax a little! I think Burano is a nice day trip away from the hustle and bustle in Venice. I cannot remember the price of the boat ticket, but whatever it was…it was well worth it! Overall, I think a visit to Burano is well worth it. The island itself is not too far away from Venice and is easy to get to. Most people have not heard of this island, so it is not too crowded, feels like you are in another country.
  • A cute and heartwarming town full of warmth and vibrancy. Though it feels quaint, it is by no stretch a faded tradition. All the buildings are very well kept and the owners are clearly proud of the bright colours that make this such an interesting place to visit. The people are friendly and local restaurants make you feel very welcome.
  • Beautiful island with colorful of fisherman’s houses. Just about an hour boat ride from big island Venice, you can experience a beautiful little town, cute shops, and peaceful. I went there in late afternoon on cold winter day so not so many people. Definitely a gem. Great place to take pictures, enjoy coffees. I didn’t have a chance to eat seafood here, but I’m sure it will be very good and fresh.
  • Beautiful island! Takes about an hour from Venice Island, and costs €7.50 one way (€15 for return tickets). Besides the colorful houses, there isn’t much else to do. Check the weather forecast before going. Sunny days are much better for photos.
  • This is a must do in Venice!! Its like everyone goes to Venice and they don't come here. Only a short boat ride from Venice itself. Beautiful brightly coloured homes are magic to see. Such a peaceful and relaxing place.
