Burano Picturesque townscape


The picturesque island in the lagoon

Burano is, without doubt, the most picturesque island in the lagoon. Colourfully painted, the little houses on the island line up next to each other and form a truly picturesque townscape. According to legend, the colours were used to show returning fishermen the way in the fog. The fishing boats are also brightly painted and, together with the houses, are reflected in the water. The leaning campanile of the church of San Martino fits perfectly into this townscape. There is also a crucifixion painting by Tiepolo. So if you have a little time while in Venice, you should not miss out the 40-minute ride to the idyllic Burano – the trip is worth it in any case.

Burano is famous today mainly because of its lace. You can admire lacework in many window displays and, of course, buy it as well. But watch out: Really cheap laceworks are mostly imitations from the Far East and not made in Burano. In this context, it is also worth visiting the small museum of Scuola del Merletto, where you can learn all about the art of lace and lace-making.
