Burano, Venice

An Amazing Place To Visit

Burano is such a beautiful island in the Venetian Lagoon, so amazing, and a photographers dream! The name “Burano” arise from “Porta Boreana”, the northern door of the city.

Burano is very famous for its needle lace. Lace making is the main craftsmanship and attraction on this island.

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.

Ancient legend says that it was the fisherman who had decided to paint their houses very different colors so when they returned at night from a day of fishing, they could easily identify which one was theirs.

These days, the colors of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development. If someone wishes to paint their home, they must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colors permitted for their particular lot. It’s an Italian HOA!

For those that follow our blog, Instagram or Facebook, you know I have an obsession with doors. It continued in Burano although most of the front doors were open with a sheet hanging in front of it.

If you visit Venice, put it on your list to see. It truly is beautiful.
