Five cruise ships in port and very difficult to move about after the recent flooding due to storms. Murano Island trip to the glass factory interesting but put under pressure by staff to purchase items in the shop. Goods not value for money, far too expensive.

No real tour..on our own which is all you need here. the only reason we took this was because of the shortness of time. Otherwise go without a tour.

Burano is a beautiful place, all the different colours of the house is so unusual, and then you have the boats and canals instead of roads. We went to see a lace making demo but just wandering around the streets and sidewalks was the best part of all.

Wish we'd had more time in this colorful, charming place. Much more fun to visit than Murano.

Burano, where we were shown how the local lace products were made, was delightful. Much less crowded than Venice with pretty pastel coloured houses alongside a series of canals. Well worth a visit if you have already seen as much of Venice as you want.

We REALLY liked Burano.... traveling there via the city water taxis. It took a few connections, but once we got out there, we loved the colorful buildings, the cute shops where we purchased several things, and the restaurant where we ate lunch El Gato Nero (The Black Cat). Our waiter was very friendly and efficient, the seafood was fresh and delectable, and the wine crisp and refreshing. Go there & enjoy an outstanding meal!!! Loved Burano.

Easy ride to Burano where we saw a lace demonstration and then wandered around the town over the tiny venetian bridges. Tour guide explained the history of the different colored houses.
