Burano is a small island north of Venice in Italy.

Getting there

From Venice, get on LN line vaporetti from Fondamente Nuove - 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.

Traveling around

The only way to get around Burano is by foot.


There are many colorful houses to see in Burano. Every color of the rainbow is represented. The village is quiet and peaceful. Enjoy lunch or a drink and buy some lace from a local artist. A relaxing departure from the busier islands of Venice and Murano. There is a lace museum called Museo del Merletto. However, it is small and does not offer much to see.


Try Burano's biscuits called "Essi": yellow "s" shaped cookies. You can buy them in any food shop along calle Galuppi, the main street.


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.

Vaporetto's leave about every 30 minutes in each direction.
