The fishing village of Burano, located in the  Venetian  Lagoon (map), is famous for its lace-making industry, and its streets and canals lined by pastel colored houses. If you're in Venice, consider a side trip to Burano.d62358a0-6e3f-445e-b8aa-77f5d6b897b3.jpgbeeb55f5-0df1-498f-8178-ab0a79a0758e.jpgaa702656-560e-462c-9152-a01059bc0cda.jpgd3d905dd-1497-46be-ae85-801a779dca5a.jpg6e99704e-e749-43fc-b38e-bc6e5ba5aa77.jpgc903deb5-ad4b-4881-8606-8cb1488b4b35.jpg372b8e3f-7e7e-4b68-8fc7-35307ca09060.jpgd62358a0-6e3f-445e-b8aa-77f5d6b897b3.jpgbeeb55f5-0df1-498f-8178-ab0a79a0758e.jpgaa702656-560e-462c-9152-a01059bc0cda.jpgd3d905dd-1497-46be-ae85-801a779dca5a.jpg6e99704e-e749-43fc-b38e-bc6e5ba5aa77.jpgc903deb5-ad4b-4881-8606-8cb1488b4b35.jpg372b8e3f-7e7e-4b68-8fc7-35307ca09060.jpg

Bello!  Did you also visit Murano?  If you only could choose one which one would you choose?

Also, any souviners you really glad you bought or wish you could have?

Murano and Burano were both included on this tour. The glass making at Murano was very interesting, but I could have spent the entire day exploring the streets of Burano, taking photos of the town and its people.

As for  souvenirs, buy something that will remind you (and friends) of the places you visit. We bought a couple of Venetian carnival masks and some Murano glass jewelry.

It would be a shame to visit Murano and not come home with a nice piece of hand made glass ware.   We bought a heavy hand blown bowl the last time in Venice, and a similar item on an earlier visit.  The heavy bowl was shipped home by the store.  It arrived at my house a few days after our return.

note some trips to not go to Burano and only to Murano.  If you can, I suggest doing both.  You can always go on own to Burano and Murano in same day.  It's long and a bit complicated, but if you are good with directions and easy going to use the vaparettos or water taxis then do it. I had been to Venice on my third trip and I did the Murano and Burano on same day in a rain storm and it was fun... long, but fun!  The first time I went to Venice we just did Murano because that is famous; this third trip, I had to do Burano. It was a cute little town with colorful houses and nice lace scarfs etc.  A nice adventure.  But, the core of this trip is Venice Island - enjoy that - lots of walking and discovering and eating....
