Atmosphere and beautiful Burano can't be described. You must go there and immerse yourself in a maze of colorful houses

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.

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.
