I finally made it to Burano on our last family trip to Venice. This colorful fishing village is an island in the Venetian archipelago. There’s not much to do there other than stroll, shop, and eat a fresh seafood lunch, but it’s unique and fun to pair with a trip to a glassblowing factory in Murano. Burano also is famous for traditional lacemaking and there’s a lacemaking museum, Museo del Merletto, to visit as well. Although, that was a tough sell for my boys so we didn’t go.
When I say colorful village, I mean colorful … as this picture of Burano shows, the palette is seriously bright. The more colors clash, the more they are combined. It’s something to see!
ACTV, the Venetian public transport company, has regular boats from Venice Fondamente Nuove and the Murano Faro stop. The trip from Venice directly takes about 45 minutes.
