On a more cheerful note, the canals in Burano are lined with bright and beautifully coloured houses. This water suburb of Venice covers four small islands, linked by several bridges. The homes have had a bright colour scheme for many years and the area is also famous for its lacework. Visit the Museum of Lace to find out the history of the craft. While photography is not allowed in the museum, the rest of Burano is a photographer’s dream.
