5 Reasons To Visit Colourful Burano In Italy! 🇮🇹
Picturesque Burano is known for its brightly coloured fishermen’s houses, and its casual eateries serving seafood from the lagoon.
It’s also home to Italy’s best gelato...
...for as low as €1! My favourite is the pineapple pins colada from Sall Di Luca Rossi & C. Snc 🍦
Every window in Burano is as unique as the colour of its house.
Ancient legend says that Italian fishermen were the first to paint their houses in the rainbow of colours we see today.
According to the story, the bright hues allowed them to see their homes from long distances while fishing.
And upon returning home at night, in rain or during heavy snow storms. Now, residents must notify the local government before repainting their homes.
This is also where the art of lace making took off! The Lace Museum in Burano offers regular tours, history lessons and guided workshops.
