If you get the Vaporetto from Murano to Burano as we did, you might be put off by the long queues waiting at Faro Vaporetto stop, but once the waterbus arrives it moves quickly and they do get a lot of people on. Burano is a beautiful little island, certainly one for your photo album. The narrow streets do struggle with the sheer volume of tourists though but as long as your happy with rubbing shoulders and backpacks with everybody else, you'll soon find your way into the centre of the town with it's waterways and multi-coloured houses, which if the sun is shining is quite a sight to behold. The Piazza Galuppi is the main square with plenty of cafe bars and restaurants, so you can grab some food, a spritz and watch the world go by. Give your self time to get the bus or ferry back to Venice though, as the queues at the terminal will be long. The Burano ferry to S.Marco is huge though, so everyone gets on and it takes about 1hr 15 mins to get to S. Zaccaria. If you have a beautiful sunny day and you do as we did and get this early evening, you'll be treated to a magnificent sunset over the the city as you make the approach into Venice.
