Horrible public transportation on Sunday
Oct 2021 • Family
Actual fighting for a spot in the long queue, and agents shouting “calma” to pretty much no avail. Not a pretty sight. Never coming back by actv, must remember the nicely coloured houses.

Colorful island, a calm getaway from the city
Sep 2021
It takes about an hour from the city of Venice to reach this island near the old settlements at Torcello. Not much happens here, but it will give you pleasure just to walk around and look at the multi colored houses; and sit down for a nice seafood lunch on a half day trip

Wonderful Burano Island
Jul 2021
When in Venice, I always like to spend some time on Burano, which is for me one of the most beautiful places in the Veneto. The colorful houses, the canals, the campi, the atmosphere, the food here - I really like it. The only thing I dont like is the very hot and damp vaporetto ride from Fondamenta Nuovo. It would be so much more pleasant if the boats were more open.

Pretty, but not essential
Jul 2020
I enjoyed my time here, but there is only so much lace you can look at. All restaurants require reservations, so I just grabbed lunch from a grocery store and headed back to Venice. If I were to go again, I would make reservations somewhere outside and enjoy the view.

Pretty special
Oct 2020
Thought the brightly coloured houses were lovely and the whole place wasn't too touristy.

We found a lovely little cake shop with a kind owner and tried the local 'esse' biscuits, which were delicious.

Not a big place but pleasant to have a wander around and just enjoy the atmosphere.

The houses are painted in different colors what creates a special atmosphere. It's worth a visit. Small island but beautiful.

Balamory in the sun!
Aug 2020 • Couples
Went today on the number 12 Vaporetto from San Marco Zaccaria which took about an hour. Trip across the lagoon not that exciting. The island itself a wonderful mixture of all the colours of the rainbow and more. In nice weather such as today, well worth a walk around and lunch in one of the many reasonably priced restaurants. Nice to while away a few hours!

Photographer's paradise!
Aug 2019
This island is truly enchanting! The colors and scenes are quirky and beautiful! Highly recommend as a day trip from Venice. This place provides no shortage of photography opportunities - from the colors of the buildings to the leaning tower!

Tack this on to your visit to Murano. You can easily do both by lunchtime if you get an early start.
