Me piace Burano

23 May

Researching Venezia to narrow down what I would really like to do and see in a day. Burano is an intriguing little island out in the lagoon about a 45-minute vaporetto ride from Venice. The houses there are painted all different bright colors and look very festive. The island is also known for handmade lace. Here is a youtube video I found of photos of Burano with a sound track of “That’s Amore”. This would be a good half day excursion to a new destination for me. I’ve already been to St. Mark’s Cathedral, the Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs. (Did you know that there is an authentic chastity belt on display in the Doge’s palace?) I would like to get lost in little stradas and piazzas and take photos to my heart’s content. What do you think? Has anyone reading this been to Burano?

    I’ve been there! OK, that was 20 years ago, but I liked it 🙂 We went to a glass factory, of course. (BTW, do not, under any circumstances, buy any glassware from the factory. They pretend to give you a discount, but then you find the stuff for half the price you paid on sale all over the city!)

      The glass factory is on Murano, because I have been there also. I am not planning on going back to Murano.

        Ah yes, you’re right… Murano is where the glass is.
        But I’ve definitely been to Burano as well, I remember those houses!!

    It looks lovely and interesting. I am half Italian and my aunt was madly in love with Dean Martin. Then he divorced his wife for a younger woman and his name was never mentioned again…EVER. Italians know how to hold a grudge, at least in my family they do. I remember hearing the women sing this song. And the town looks like a photographer’s paradise.

      Photographer’s paradise. Yes, that’s what I thought too.

    Check out some of Rachael’s recent posts and photos on Burano! Her most recent one featured a collage: — it looks like a lovely spot!
