What a pretty little town. Incredibly colorful with lots of stores selling home made linens and lace! Loved the slow stroll along the lanes. Spend a few hours here!

Burano is really pretty with beautiful coloured houses. I recommend that you keep off the beaten track, avoid the tourist shops and find the hidden houses. As with Venice, explore all of the island it is so peaceful and pretty.

While Venice stands out for its past glow and prosperity, the Burano island tells the story how the region development started. Small houses, small canals, small streets, and square. Burano people managed to keep their town the way how it was built many many years...More

You cannot go to Venice and not catch a short boat ride to Burano Island. Every single house is a different colour and the place screams vibrance and fun. The whole experience will take max 2 hours, boat ride there and back and exploring the...More

Burano such beautiful place. The colorful houses are amazingly beautiful. It is very crowded and you have to be very tolerant when catching the water taxi to return to Venice. But it’s worth to go there.

Anybody who visits Venice should make a trip to Burano to admire the beautiful landscape, brightly coloured fisherman's houses and to take postcard-worthy photos. Also, check out shops that sell lace products, like linens and clothes which Burano is also known. If time permits, stop...More

U will need to check with your hotel for all the local tours. It's best to do the morning tour as early as u can. It gets hot in the afternoon n the queue gets longer. Start your tour at 9 am sharp is u can.
