Looking at these photos I can’t believe that a place like Burano is real. This tranquil island is bursting with color in the Northern Venetian Lagoon, close to Venice and Murano.
This stunning island is actually an archipelago of 4 islands and there are 5 quarters. Burano is most famous for its colorful landscape with its brightly hued houses. Tourists love visiting the island, and you can get there by boat from Venice in just 45 minutes.
This delightful island is home to 3000 residents, and the main industries are fishing and lace making. The local women have been making lace since the 1400s and their beautiful handwork is coveted and sold around the world.
If you visit the island, make sure to visit the lace making museum. While nearby Murano is more famous for glass and Venice for masks, the island also partakes in these activities and you can see them being made in local studios. You can also peruse shops and dine at a number of restaurants on the island.
