Lonely Planet review
Gourmet getaways are made in the shade of the vineyards at Venissa, which offers some of the lagoon’s finest, freshest dining as well as six Scandinavian-chic rooms under the farmhouse rafters. Breakfast – if that's what you can call the lavish gourmet affair – is extra, either prix fixe (€15) or à la carte. Pre-book for cookery classes with world-class chefs, crab fishing with Burano fishermen or photography and rowing outings.
In 2016, Venissa plan to add 13 more rooms in a handful of fishermen's cottages on Burano.
Our independent authors have visited Venissa and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands.
