Looking for the most colorful island in Italy? Be sure to visit Burano, a mere 45 minutes from Venice.
BURANO TRAVEL GUIDE
When I saw photos on Instagram of this cute and colorful island called Burano, I knew I had to visit. Burano is a small island that is about 45 minutes by ferry from Venice. Burano is known for all its colorful houses that are inhabited by less than 3000 locals on the island. If you love bright and colorful things and you love taking photos, this is the place to go for a half day visit. (Scroll down for the full Burano travel guide)
WHAT I’M WEARING
I decided I had to wear a bright colored dress to go with all the colorful buildings in Burano. I found the perfect dress on Metisu – this pink dress with flap and button details. It is lightweight and comfortable – perfect for traveling during the day and for photos! (Thank you Metisu for sponsoring this dress)

HOW TO GET TO BURANO
You can get to Burano by taking the Line 12 Vaporetto (Ferry/Water Taxi) from F.te Nove. The station is located towards the north east of Venice (See map below). We walked there from San Toma and it took about 20 minutes.
WHAT TO DO IN BURANO
Burano is very picturesque, and has been deemed a paradise for photographers. I would say it’s a paradise for bloggers too! The main thing to do here is, of course, to take photos. Wander around their streets and get lost. You will easily find your way back as Burano is not very big. If you come around lunch hours you can dine at one of their quaint restaurants. Alternatively you can also shop for lace, clothes and some accessories. There are no hotels on this island so the best way to visit Burano is to do a half or full day trip. I recommend staying here 2-3 hours at most.
This is my mum – a lovely petite lady and my favorite travel companion. We color coordinated for this trip to Burano, and went crazy taking photos!
