The island of Burano is easily accessible by public or private transportation from Venice and is an ideal destination for spending a pleasant morning or afternoon.

Join this 60-minute tour and discover the island’s colorful houses and hand-made laces, and many other surprises! Your guide Silvia, born and raised in Burano, will lead you on a walking tour of the island, intended not only as a simple sightseeing tour, but also a chance to learn about the history, customs, and traditions of the picturesque community.

Visit many interesting monuments, including the Church of St. Martino and St. Barbara and its famous leaning bell tower. Attend a short demonstration on the making of world-famous Burano lace. You'll visit a typical lace museum of Burano island where you'll have the chance to admire precious laces from about the XVI and XVII centuries, and buy home made products for special rates.
