How To Get There

To get to Burano, you will have to take a water taxi from the center of Venice. Whether you take a water taxi from Piazzale Roma (the large bus-station and train-station) or somewhere else in Venice is completely up to you as there are multiple spots to get on the water taxi.

The quickest way to get to Burano is to take water taxi line 3 to Murano. And from Murano, take water taxi line 12 to Burano.

Buy tickets for the water taxi at Piazzale Roma. In total you have to get 2 water taxis, 2 in total one way and 2 to return. I highly advise you to buy a full-day pass for €20 per person. This day-pass is cheaper than buying separate tickets, and it is convenient not having to buy a single ticket every time you step on a water-taxi.

To get back to Piazzale Roma, you need line 12 back to Murano, and from there, you can either take line 4.2 or 5.1.

What To Expect From Burano

When you step off the water-taxi, you can already spot the first colorful houses. Walk into any street, and you will be hit with a rainbow of colors! Every house in Burano has a bright color, and the people who live there really have made an effort to make their house stand out with little details.

Along the canals, small restaurants are serving local dishes. These are perfect for a Spritz Aperol and a lovely lunch. Furthermore, there are little lace and soap shops.

Watch the fisher boats in the canal, shop for a cute souvenir, and enjoy a cocktail on the terrace. Burano is very small, and in a few hours, you have seen the entire island, but every minute on this island is a rainbow party.
