went on a water taxi to Burano for a visit.The place was very busy with tourists coming and going.Lovely colours of houses [Italian version of Scottish Balimory]and plenty of small streets with canals too and two water ambulances berthed.Would recommend if you have time.

Decided to visit Burano and so glad we did. What an absolute charming and wonderful Island. A fantastic way to spend the day and so nice to wander around and soak up the atmosphere.

Just take the Vaporetto from Murano which will take about 40 mins (covered with the travel card if you have bought that). Have a great stroll through this cute and colourful place.

The rainbow of colours that are painted on the houses provide a vivid and eye watering attack on your visual senses but it is more than just a canvass of colour! This is a calm haven and respite away from the swathe of tourists that...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.
