The Venetian lagoon.
A micro archipelago as a small island.
An islet made of five minor islets with fourth canals connected by several bridges.
An islet of lined colorful fishermen houses, rainbow-like tiny lanes and alleys,
with outside drying laundry on the Mediterranean sun as lively theatrical decoration
and dramatically leaning bell-tower of the San Martino Church.
An islet of vivid simplicity as contrast to nearby monumental aristocratic Venice,
with energetic atmosphere of the small tight-knit Italian community and coherently expressive Italian
culture “in situ“.
Burano, the joyful secret of the Populi Veneti and the bursting paradise of artistic happiness.
Where is it: Burano , 7 km north from Venice, is the best reached by a 40-minute secnic drive by “vaporetto”number 12, departing every half hour from Fondament Nove in Venice.
What to visit: The Lace Museum, because of famous lace making tradition on Burano
