Just like the sailors of old, you’d recognize this Venetian island by the picturesque pastel-colored houses and buildings visible from its shores. Burano also is famous for its intimate lace, an art its people want to keep alive.

Stroll between the canals, have some coffee, some homemade "Essi" (delicious typical biscuits), take some pictures, relax, and get lost in the small streets. :)

On any bucket list, this place should be enjoyed as the locals do, living slowly and quietly, learning ancient crafts, eating amazing food from the lagoon and drinking wine. If you had the chance to go there off-season, the foggy November atmosphere is truly worth...More
