Italy Things to Do: 1,470 reviews and 2,257 photos
We took a boat tour from Venice to see some of the other 40 islands that are in the lagoon. We passed some with churches and monasteries, hospitals, a villa and gardens. One also has a Jewish cemetary, and another the city's burial grounds. On islands with towers, the towers were all leaning because most of the islands are sinking a little. When we got to Burano, we got off to explore this small village made up of 8 islands with canals between them. Houses are painted bright colors. Our guide told us that this helped drunk fishermen find the correct house when they came home at night. Boats used by the fishermen are flat bottomed to fish among the shoals and beds of sea grass.
