Get to Know Burano
Burano is one of the many islands that make up the archipelago of the Venetian lagoon. Located 7 kilometers from Venice and 6 kilometers from Murano, this island attracts thousands of tourists every year.
The island draws the attention of tourists for its brightly painted houses. Why are homes on Burano colorful? According to a legend, fishermen chose striking colors to find their homes on foggy days.
Geographically, it is connected by a bridge to its neighboring island Mazzorbo, which is also visited by tourists for its vineyards and orchards. Burano is a small island, so it is very easy to explore it, and it has a population of around 7,000 inhabitants, who live off tourism and fishing.
When and How to Visit Burano
Any time of the year is a good time to visit Burano, although it is recommended to travel in spring as the heat is ideal for strolling through its streets. It is also recommended that you travel on a sunny day so as not to miss any tourist attractions.
To get to the island, tourists choose the most common and cheapest way: water buses, which are called vaporettos.
The vaporetto is a kind of boat that leaves Venice for Burano. It is estimated that it takes approximately 40 minutes, and you can take two lines: the 12 that leaves from Fundamente Nove or the 14 that leaves from Piazza San Marco.
Where to Eat in Burano
If you want to delight your palate with traditional Venetian food, we recommend the trattoria restaurants, and you cannot miss the osterias if your tastes lean towards seafood and fresh fish.
The island also has pizzerias and bars if you are not one of those who innovate with food. The bars, for the most part, have terraces where you can enjoy an alcoholic drink widely consumed in the Venetian region: The Spritz.
And we recommend you not to leave Burano without trying the Bussolá, which are traditional Venetian biscuits that are very well preserved since they were eaten by sailors during their long working days.
