Just like the sailors of old, you’d recognize this Venetian island by the picturesque pastel-colored houses and buildings visible from its shores. Burano also is famous for its intimate lace, an art its people want to keep alive.

Burano is the perfect island. Hop on a vaporetto from Venice and 45 minutes later soak up the atmosphere. Picture perfect houses and shops, peaceful and full of character. Treat yourself and spend the day here.

Nice half day trip out. Here there are lots of lace shops, a few restaurants, and a vineyard. Famous for its coloured houses. Nice to soak up the sun on another island.

Easily accessible from Venice by waterboat/ferry. Definitely worth a visit, the colours are magical, and make for some great photography too. Plenty of little eateries, speciality fish dishes, fab pizza and worth investigating Burano lace, masters at work :)
