Island of Burano, Italy – Part 2

I thought it was high time we visited the Island of Burano in the Venetian Lagoon for a second look. Next to Venice itself, Burano is one of my favourite places because of the colours of the fishermen’s houses, the cleanliness of the whole island, and as I said in my ‘Island of Burano, Italy – Part 1’ post, the ‘spaghetti western’ look of the whole place. I hope you enjoy the photographs:

Looking out on the cloudy, wet weather we are having at this precise moment in May, I can only say that I wish I was in Burano now! Hope you enjoyed the photographs!

    • Hey Xandre – The colours are what makes the island different from Venice! Venice is all history and natural deterioration of buildings. Burano, even though the buildings are old, is better looked after and the colours give the place a clean, fresh and almost ‘arty’ feel. I assume you didn’t have time to visit when you were in Venice itself?

      Cheers!

      John
