Burano – Island of Lace

Caught the ferry across to the island of Burano, a fishing village with brightly coloured houses. All the houses are painted in vivid colours.

Highly coloured, traditionally to distinguish the families who live there. Even today residents cannot change a colour of a particular house without permission from the  local Government who will advise what colours may be used.

Also known as the Island of Lace, there are many shops selling beautiful linen products for the home and exquisite fashions and made in Italy.
