The Island of colours, Burano is known for its brightly coloured houses and lace needlework. In actual fact, the built-up centre covers a total of four islands, in the southern part of the Venetian Lagoon. The only square in Burano is Piazza Galuppi, lined with typical restaurants and souvenir shops. In a Gothic residence next to the Palazzo del Podestà, you can visit the Museo del Merletto (Lace Museum): it houses more than two-hundred unique pieces from the local school’s collection. Burano’s most colourful house? That of Bepi Suà, just behind the square. Other brightly coloured homes can be found in Via Giudecca, Via San Mauro and Via San Martino Sinistro. Meanwhile at the Pescarìa Vecia, the town’s oldest fish market, you can treat your eyes to truly breath-taking sunsets: it’s the preferred location for photographers and romantic couples! A gourmet stop? The taverns of Burano serve “Gò Risotto”, the island’s traditional dish, and “Bussolà”, the Buranello sweet par excellence.
