Sagra del Pesce

Sagra del Pesce Burano Venice
12.00 - 20.00 Burano

If you have a few days in Venice then it is well worth taking a day out to visit some of the other islands in the lagoon. The Sagra del Pesce in Burano, taking place in September is the perfect opportunity to explore more of the Venetian archipelago. It is an annual celebration of fish and wine where you will find loads of stalls set up in the streets selling the catch of the day from the local fishing boats, all washed down with some delicious white wine.

Of course the highlight of the festival is the Burano Regatta which also marks the ends of the regatta year. The competition takes place in the waters in front of the island and the regatta is visible from the fondamenta so it is worth staking your claim to a good viewing spot early to ensure you don’t miss out on the action.

Burano is normally a tranquil place filled with hard working fishermen and tends to be a little isolated from Venice itself. So even if you are not here for the festival it is a great place to relax and catch your breath away from the bustle of the city.

Getting to Burano will take a little time but you can enjoy some lovely views from the boat as you cross the lagoon. Your first step from Generator Venice is to head to Fondament Nove on the north side of the city and catch vaporetto number 12. It stops off at Murano on the way and the journey takes about an hour at a fee of around 20 Euros for the round trip.

For a good first impression of the island alight at the small island of Mazzorbo, the stop just before Burano and walk the rest of the way across the little footbridge between the two islands.
