Burano – The Most Colourful City, Italy

Share/Bookmark

The Island of Burano, in the Venetian lagoon, is made of picturesque canals lined with brightly colored houses, about an hour away from Venice. It is also famous for its artisan lace makers. Visitors can enjoy lunch or a drink and buy some lace from a local artist. Families used to paint their homes in bright colors to designate where their family’s quarters ended and a neighbor’s began, as well as to make their homes more visible from the sea. The typical Burano’s houses are mainly squared-shaped and are divided into two or three floors. At the low ground there is the kitchen, the breakfast nook and the toilet. At the next floors there are the bedrooms.
