Burano is constituted by an island placed in the northern part of the lagoon, linked to Mazzorbo by a bridge. The current population of Burano is about 4,000.

It rose in importance only in the 16th century, when women on the island began making lace with needles. The lace was soon exported across Europe, but decline began in the 18th century and the industry did not revive until 1872, when a school of lacemaking was opened. Lacemaking on the island boomed again, but few now make lace in the traditional manner as it is extremely time-consuming and therefore expensive.

Burano is known for its small, brightly-painted houses. The colours of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development. This practice originated the myriad of warm, pastelly colours that characterises the island today.
