When visiting Venice, you just have to include Murano and Burano to your itinerary.  Both are definitely worth a visit.

You can add visits to these islands as day trips and experience the fabulous cuisine, shops and views while visiting in Venice.  Or take more time to explore and experience the culture while staying on one of the islands.

Burano Venice Day trips

A gentle boat trip takes you to Burano

Burano is less than an hour by boat and the ferry will take you there without any worries.  When searching photos online before your trip, you’ll expect to be greeted by the brightly colored, beautifully painted buildings.

Things to do in Burano

Although some tourists rate Burano as “over appreciated”, the island does make for fabulous photos.  (It is known as one of the most colorful travel destinations in the world.)  Legend has it that the buildings (within this former fisherman’s village) were painted in bright colors for the fishermen to see it easily coming in from the sea. These days it is a tourist attraction.  But what also attracts tourists to Burano is the beautiful lace

3 Must visit-places in Burano

  1. The Lace Museum is located at the historic palace of Podestà of Torcello, in Galuppi square, on the island of Burano, near Venice, Italy. (7 min walk from Burano “C” ferry terminal)
  2. Martina Vidal Venice is a family-run flagship store selling luxurious handmade Burano lace & linen garments & household items. (Near ferry terminal – Burano “C”)
  3. Laces by Olga is a craft store offering lace handmade items, such as tablecloths, placemats, scarves & dresses. (7 min walk from Burano “C” ferry terminal)

Just wondering around the island you’ll find cute little shops to buy souvenirs, but if you do, you have to buy lace.  It’s sort of why you go there in the first place…

There are no shortage of restaurants and places to eat or stop for something to drink.
