  • 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.

  • Think colored houses on a canal which reflect the colored houses. The story goes that the drunk fisherman would come back from the sea only to be confused by the houses that are very similar in architecture and size. The wives then decided to paint the houses a distinctive, bright color so it could be easily identified by the fisherman. There are delightful Piazza’s flanked with restaurants and coffee shops. The local bakery is excellent. Lace making is a craft that is not making it through the ages but is also something Burano is known for. Accessible by boat it is well worth the time and small expense. This was a highlight of our Tour of Europe.
  • It's a beautiful island near venice. You can reach their by boat . One can buy an all day boat ticket and visit all the nearby islands. It's a fisherman island and is famous for colorful houses.
  • Awesome experience to be in a such colourful village. Ferry 12 goes to Burano from Murano. But it will be crowded. So be prepared. Take your time in the island and relax.
  • Everywhere we went is like a picture in a book. Very nice place and good for taking photos. I would like to come during summer time.
  • I did love it but just don’t go to both Islands on Christmas day. They took too many people over to Island without enough boats to get them back timely. We had to wait passed dusk in very pressing, nearly panicking, line of people several hours, with a toddler, to get on an over crowded boat. This was my only scary time on a much beloved trip. Venice on Christmas was a dream, just don’t recommened trying to do both Islands on a Holiday.
