The pretty little towns of Murano and Burano are two of the many islands in the Venetian Lagoon. Both of which are easily accessed by 45 minutes to an hours’ boat ride from the city centre and make a wonderful day trip from Venice.
Murano has become famous for glass. The skilled craftsmen create beautiful vases and other items through glass-blowing. Much of which is then exported around the world.
Burano is famous for lace and the brightly coloured homes that line its waterways.
Both islands make a lovely day trip outside of Venice. I would even argue that the food is better out here too.
To best illustrate this great day trip from Venice, I’ve put together a little photo diary. Enjoy the colourful inspiration!
