A short distance from Venice via a vaporetto is the island of Burano known for its lace. We went there one day to have a look. It was extremely foggy and I was hoping the captain of the boat had radar because I sure couldn’t see a thing.
All of the building there are painted in bright colors. Either so a drunk man can find his home after too much drinking or a sailor can see his home from the water, I’m not sure which, but it was pretty with canals and bridges everywhere. There were places selling lace but I passed.
