Burano Island ; Italy
It is sad that many tourists who visit Venice miss the hidden gem Burano Island: only 4 miles away from the center.
All it takes is a 40-minute ride on the water taxis or Venetian motorboats (vaporetti). For instance, LN water bus departs from San Mark’s , stopping at Lido, Burano Island, Murano, and others.
Another fun fact: residents of Burano Island must send an official request to the local government if they wish to paint their home, as the change must be pre-approved plus fit with the color scheme of their neighborhood.
