Isola di Burano, Burano
(4.8/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
The small Venetian Isola di Burano is famous for its elaborate laceworks. You can browse several traditional lace shops and even the lace museum. Stroll among the reds, orange, blue, and green houses and buildings to Galuppi Square, the center of the island. Visit the Church of San Martino, which has its own leaning tower, as well as Giambattista Tiepolo's 18th-century painting of the crucifixion. Stop at one of the pastry stores to try the typical Burano cookie, bussolà buranello. At the waterfront, watch fishermen haul in their catch. Isola di Burano is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Burano Edition.

  • This used to be the lace-making area and when I first came here - incredibly, more than half a century ago (!) - the little narrow streets had old ladies sitting outside on stools making lace by hand....  more »
  • The island is friendly, full of color. But it can be visited in one hour. Before landing; make sure you go to the toilet on the island because the boat it is 1.5 euros. However Beware you employee of the vaporetto that allows to leave the island. When the boat arrived he said clearly that this ship wasn't up to Venice. As it seemed strange (in English and even in Italian) we asked several times and confirmed each time. We are all the same mounted on board, to discover that he was fine until Venice... It really felt that this "mistake" was voluntary.

  • strongly recommends a visit to Burano, alias in my view, going to Venice and not visit this small island, it would be like to lose a 1/4 of the stay. The beauty combined with the mixture of the colours of the houses, makes this place, something unique! Note: each color symbolizes a family!
