Burano is a small set of islands connected by canals that is a 40-minute water ferry (or Vaporetto) ride from the main Venice island. It is known for its brightly-colored houses and has a history of lace-making.
The first three times I visited Venice I decided not to take the excursion to Burano. I’m so glad I decided to take the trip there this past time. It is such a magical little place! It almost doesn’t look real.
