Question About Burano

Hello, I was wondering if traveling to Burano for dinner is feasible. We only have 3 days in Venice. So, while I would like to check out Burano and hopefully dine at Da Romano, if it's not easy to get there and back in an evening I'll probably cross that off my list.

You could do but it is a long way to go just for a meal, the Ferry service is not that regular,

Thanks Sophie, that's all I need to hear. We have such a small amount of time in Venice that if it's not easy to get there and back, I'll wait until next time.

It is definitely reachable for dinner, and is actually very easy.

The service is perfectly regular (see www.actv.it/pdf/navigazione/linea12.pdf ), just slightly less frequent in the later hours of the day. From Burano you have return vaporettos at 20.26, 20.56, 21.30, 22.25, 23.11, and 0.11 so there is no problem. If you were to stay later, the Linea Notturno Laguna Nord runs all night ( www.actv.it/pdf/navigazione/notturno_LN.pdf ).

The ride takes the same amount of time as any other time of the day, so that is not really a factor compared to any daytime visit.

Oh wow, that's great and super helpful. Thank you, perhaps I will reconsider. Does it make much of a difference in the off season months? We will be in Venice in mid-November.

Also, and this is slightly off topic, are most restaurants closed on Sundays?

The journey still takes approx 45 minutes each way,

Restaurants close in turn, there is always Restaurants open, Mondoy seems a day when there are a lot closed, maybe because Fish is prominent , and the Markets close on Mondays,

Hi Sophie!

My wife and I really liked Burano...and an advantage of staying later is that most of the crowd will have gone back and the life of the town seems to take on a different quality in the evening.

Attending to the return vaporetto times, it certainly is worth considering the visit!
