“Best gelato in Burano”

Burano is great for exploring and enjoying a walking tour, taking in all of the visual and picturesque houses on the island. I think 2 to 4 hours is a perfect time duration to enjoy everything and its really nice to escape from the crazy busy tourist areas of Venice. Have a spot of lunch and enjoy the many restaurants of Burano.

I can imagine the sunset here would be amazing! I went mid morning and the lighting was super bright!

Burano has a population of around 2500.

What is Burano famous for?

It's brightly coloured houses and also lace.

Burano's small and brightly coloured homes follow a specific system which has been in place since its golden age of development. If someone would like to re paint a home they have to apply for strict planning permission and they have to paint it a colour which has been designated to that property building.
