"Burano." Isola Burano Tip by keeweechic

Isola Burano, Venice: 72 reviews and 112 photos


Burano is only a small island just 7 kms north of Venice proper. The homes and buildings have their own unique style and are brightly coloured. I believe we were told that this originated from days when fisherman came home late and could find their homes easier because of the colour - who knows.
