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.

  • Burano is a really nice beautiful island with nice colourful houses I found the locals to be quite friendly and helpful.  more »
  • Nice spot for a walk around. We came wit small kids - much more space for them to run around than Venice with a lovely backdrop for us.  more »
  • If you are tired of the crowd surrounding constantly Venice, think of spending a few hours to walk calmly away from crowds and photographers among the narrow streets of this pretty little island. A leaning Bell Tower acts as guardian to a well-kept square with shops of specialties and the Lace Museum. Relaxing to walk through the canals surrounded by small houses from colorful colors. At a glance ... A peaceful and colorful little Venice to soak up the atmosphere of the Venetian Lagoon.

  • Beautiful Place. Need lot of travel by boat as it a separate island. Possible to go by public boats, and bus service is frequent. This village is known for Colorful Houses. You can see all possible colors given to the house, even Black :) Make sure you have good camera ! As just watching an coming back not worth. Village has beautiful canals with small bridges, and these are real photogenic places.
  • A beautiful and colourful island, well worth the boat trip. It has many little back streets to meander through and lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from. Lace making is the trade of fame for the island and many examples and shops are also available. Lots of little bridges allow you to criss cross the canals as you walk round. A must see trip to do.
  • We loved being on the island. We traveled there on a 3 island tour and this was the best. Would have been nice to stay longer. We wish we had time to eat there as the cafes seemed very nice.
  • With a few island near Venice to take waters taxis, we chose Burano as it was closest and we were attracted to the colors. From the closest pier, we were able to hop on and off 3 different boats to take us there. In total almost an hour. When we got there, you're able ot go your own way. We didn't follow the early morning crowd and roamed around different parts of the quite village. So quite, I wonder where all the people actually lived. Homes were for sale left and right to tempt the tourist passing by. Other than meandering around you can catch some food, contemplate buying the lace, and watch the sunset. Though, the water taxis start to come less and less often.
  • 100% worth a visit when you are in Venice. It was easy to get to and so beautiful and colourful. But get off at the neighbouring island and walk over the bridge and it was very picturesque and only a short walk
