The Basics

Join a guided tour of the Venetian islands and stroll through the winding streets of this charming island to admire the brightly painted houses and watch a lace-making demonstration. A private tour of Burano, Murano, and Torcello islands is a fascinating way to explore the less famous corners of the Floating City by boat.

Murano and Burano Tour
We had a beautiful day for our tour of the islands of Murano and Burano. Our guide did a great job keeping everyone engaged, particularly since he had to give the tour in 3 different languages. The islands are charming especially Burano. The lace work there is exceptional and our guide took us to a shop off the main street where I bought some beautiful scarfs. It would have been nice to have more time to walk around. But all in all it was a fun day for us.

Murano Glass Experience plus Visit to a Burano lace island
Our guide was very skilled and spoke 3 different languages on the tour. The boat we took was beautiful and clean. The only issue is there is only time to shop, eat, or take photographs on Burano. You really have to choose just one. I wish we would have brought food to eat on the boat so we could have spent more time shopping. Also the lace is quite expensive - just to give you an idea it was 95 euro for a tablecloth. I only had time to go to 3 shops. Didn't see much under that price.

Best value for money outing in Venice

Morning Venice Lagoon Cruise: Murano Island and Burano Island
It costs Euro 6.50 to catch public transport each way to see MURANO or Burano. This tour costs 18 euro and you get a bit of commentary history; a glass blowing demonstration; two islands; what’s not to like. It’s a great experience and well worth the money. Best value for money outing we did in Venice. It’s not fancy or elaborate but ticks all the boxes.

Murano, Burano & Torcello Islands Full-Day Tour
This package gives you a good overview of the three islands near Venice, that are must-stops for all tourists; Murano, Burano, and Torcello. It also goes direct to the island and preferable to the Vaporetto (which is literally a slow boat with dozens of stops).

Needed more time on Murano and less time on Torcelo and Burano Good info If Murano was the last island there would be less chance of damaging glass purchases Very enjoyable

Venice Islands Day Trip: Murano, Burano & Torcello
I enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration and browsing the show room. Absolutely loved Burano with the numerous choices in shops and restaurants. Eat lunch in Burano- skip lunch in Murano.

Murano Glass Experience plus Visit to a Burano lace island
Tour was well organized and on time. Glass blowing experience was good. Unfortunately we didn't have as much time in Burano as I would have liked - it took everyone a while to get through the glass purchasing experience.

Full-Day Lagoon Tour Murano Burano and Torcello
Enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration and the opportunity to shop and grab and delightful lunch on Murano. The history of Torcello was interesting. The colors and quaintness of Burano, along with some tasty gelato, was the highlight. The guide did a very good job, although I would appreciated a little more context/background information regarding Burano.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour
Glass making in Murano was very interesting to watch. Torcedlo was not very interesting at all and could cut out of the tour and the hour spent there would be better allocates to more time in Murano and Burano. Burano was absolutely beutiful and very picturesque.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A boat trip to Burano is a must for photography buffs, who will love capturing the vibrant colors.

  • Venice island tours require getting on and off a boat, so confirm wheelchair and stroller accessibility ahead of time.

  • Burano lace, like Murano glass, is made entirely by hand and is very expensive. Don't be fooled by cheap industrial knock-offs sold at many souvenir shops.

  • The island's main street is lined with souvenir shops, cafés, and restaurants.

How to Get There

From St. Mark's Square, take the 5.2 vaporetto from the San Zaccaria stop to Fondamente Nove, then transfer to the 12 to Burano. Boats run until late, but if you miss the last vaporetto, you’ll have to take what may be an expensive water taxi back to Venice.

When to Get There

Though the small islands outside Venice are less visited than sights like St. Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace, they can still get quite crowded. The best time to visit is in early spring or late fall. If you’re there in summer, head to Burano first thing in the morning.

Visiting Burano and Murano

Burano is often mistaken for Murano, the island known for its long history of glass blowing. You can easily visit both in a single day on a tour that combines them both. You’ll want to see Burano for the photo opportunities and lace-making and Murano for the glass-making demonstrations in the island's many glass factories.
