The Island of Burano
The Island of Burano is about a 30 minute vaperatto (water bus) ride from the San Marco station in Venice. Maybe it’s longer…to tell you the truth there were a few stops in between so I lost track. The guide book says that if you were going to pick between visiting Burano, Murano or Torcello, the Islands of the Lagoon (Laguna Veneta) to pick the former for it’s a picturesque village with bright colored painted houses and known for its lace-making. They were right. Each narrow canal was booked ended by streets lined with pretty little homes each in a different color. Local residents could be seen sitting outside their homes enjoying a beautiful Sunday morning.
Back in Venice….had to include this shot. Everywhere you looked merchants were selling the Comedia Del Arte masks. The different styles and colors are beautiful to photograph.
Now on to Florence.
