Going Beyond Venice: Murano & Burano
Murano is known for glass blowing and Burano for intricate lace. If you arrive to Venice via the Santa Lucia railway station, you can easily get boat transportation to both islands. Since we were with a group, we opted for guided transport between the islands.
The brightly colored houses of Burano were the highlight of the day…well worth the trip for me!
Have some cash on hand so you can bring back an authentic glass souvenir or some lace. Venice, especially in the summer, can be quite crowded. Murano and Burano are well appreciated as “slower” places.
Below are some photo highlights of Murano and Burano. For more Italy pics, check out my Flickr album.
