  • I didn't expect to find such a nice place. We arrived in san Francisco from Burano thanks to Massimiliano taxi + 393479922959 (10 euros per person round trip). Scheduled part so you better call and reserve. The tour lasts one hour and is only in Italian! For other languages there are brochures available. Eventually small shop to offer free, great for original gifts.

  • Small island where there is a convent of the Friars Minor (today are a half-dozen) where St. Francis stood back from the Holy land. You can reach by boat and you can see the cloister and Church led by a monk. Oasis of peace.

  • Friendly island, visited with the Scouts and despite our lack of booking we were gladly accepted. Very well kept and manicured gardens.

  • The island is so called because it was inhabited by Saint Francis who began a small community. Later it was abandoned for its unsanitary environmental conditions became a powder magazine for the Austrians, and passed into the hands of the Diocese of Venice, saw the return of the friars. You can only visit with organized tours or by being accompanied by a boatman, upon contact with the brothers who serve as guides. Particular and striking, totally out of disposable tourism.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
