Beautiful Burano

Venice, Veneto, Italy
12 Kudos
After Murano, we were on to Burano. Burano is an even smaller island. And like Murano, there is something it is famous for: lace.
Again, it is immediately evident what Burano is famous for when you step off the vaporetto. There are literally lace shops everywhere. Careful though, a lot of the little shops and stands sell lace made in China as well. So be sure to check that it is in fact made in Burano.
Aside from the lace, Burano is just an absolutely beautiful little island. The buildings are very colorful. With the tiny little canals, it is like a smaller, more colorful and quaint version of Venice. We loved just walking around and seeing all the beautiful colors of the buildings which created great photo ops.
It is definitely worth visiting Murano and Burano during a trip to Venice. I loved the glass demonstration in Murano and seeing all the pretty glass items, but overall I would say Burano is my favorite of the two because of how charming the island is. If you only have time for one island, I would suggest Burano!

Tiny little ice cream shop that also serves crepes and churros. The crepes were delicious!
Ristorante Pizzeria Principe
We were very disappointed with our lunch here. It was not very good at all despite good reviews.
