Venice & Burano

Venice is a magical place. You only need to get lost along the beautiful canals and discover hidden spots. You can also visit a couple of charming little islands – just 30min away by boat, such as Murano (well known for what they do with glass) and the colourful Burano. Also, not to mention Italian food is amazing… so we loved it! and will get back soon.

Things to do in four days in Venice

Venice is a magical place. Imagine wandering the canals late at night, when the city winds downs. Enjoying a day trip to the colourful island of Burano. Getting a gelato and going for a walk. Simply getting lost in this idyllic city.


We stayed at this amazing Airbnb – The house is exactly what you see in the photos here and has everything you might need. It is very well located, out of the touristic areas but close enough to be able to walk everywhere. Supermarkets are very close and food and drink are literally around the corner. We even had the pleasure to meet Cristina on our last hours in Venice and had a pleasant evening chatting and getting to know better this marvellous city. We recommend it 100%!

Eat & Drink

↠ Have a romantic dinner (or just a quick meal) at Ai Garzoti – Delicious pizza and antipasti.
↠ Check out this hip place – Paradiso perduto – we thought it was a bit pricy but really nice.

Se & Do

↠ Catch the sunset from one of the bridges.
↠ Visit the lovely and colourful town of Burano – really worth it! It can be a half a day trip.
↠ Try to walk along the city and get lost – and discover lovely canals.

Of course, there are the touristy things you might like to do when you come to Venice:

Visit Piazza San Marco and the Doge’s Palace. Take a picture at the Rialto Bridge. Take a (very expensive) gondola ride.

If you walk the city and take a (purposely) wrong turn from time to time you might discover lovely canals

If you go to Venice during winter, the city will be emptier than during high season. This city is a tourist honeypot, it feels good to visit when the numbers are down and the city is more relaxed

Burano is one of the prettiest islands in the lagoon: it is a miniature Venice where all the houses are painted in bright colours
