Burano is a small island north of Venice in Italy.

Get in

Burano, Venice

From Venice, get on LN line vaporetti from Fondamente Nove - north side of the town, near the hospital.

From Jesolo - and from all the beaches on the Adriatic north coast - get on the LN Line Vaporetti from Tre Porti or from Punta Sabbioni.

When you get off, turn left into the park, then right into the village.

Get around

The only way to get around Burano is by foot.


The colorful houses of Burano

There are many colorful houses to see in Burano. Every color of the rainbow is represented. The village is quiet and peaceful. It is relaxing departure from the busier islands of Venice and Murano. Enjoy lunch or a drink and buy some lace from a local artist.


As of 26 April 2011, the Lace Museum in Burano is still closed. The sign in the windows simply says "The Lace Museum is closed until Spring 2011 for requalification and restoration works. We apologize for the inconvenience."


Almost every shop on this little island sells lace products. However, beware that there are many cheap foreign products, and the real stuff is quite expensive.


Why not try Burano's biscuits called "Essi": yellow "s" shaped cookies. You can buy them in any food shop along calle Galuppi, the main street.

Go next

Vaporetto's leave about every 30 minutes in each direction. A worthy visit is to the nearby village of Torcello, only 5 minutes away by boat.
