Colorful Venetian Lagoon

The combination of pastel colored houses create a beautiful little Venetian island called Burano. dscf4245dscf4246dscf4261dscf4265dscf4268dscf4271dscf4313dscf4297dscf4301dscf4311dscf4321dscf4322Wearing: Michael Kors jumpsuit, Michael Kors purse, Aldo booties and white scarf from New York City street vendor.


Burano is a little island in the Venetian lagoon only 40 minute from Venice by boat. Today, less than 3000 people live in Burano. Known for its charming combination of pastel colored houses and famous for authentically handmade lace, Burano is a must-see. Women have been lace making since the 1400’s and usually begin at a very young age to become experts by their teen years.

Boating around the lagoon to admire the rainbow like houses was a good way to get a sense of Burano. Later, for dinner, we enjoyed a seafood feast, one of Burano’s specialties. I love how each house is of a different color, it really adds life to the town.  It must be even nicer to photograph this town when the sun is shining and the sky is blue but beautiful nonetheless.

On another note– I’d like to thank CHY- for nominating me for the 3 day quote challenge.  I will change the rules a little and include quotes to this post. Also instead of nominating  other bloggers, I invite anyone to leave a positive quote they appreciate and want to share in the comment section below.

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. – Maya Angelou

  1. Hi, beautiful photos Evelina! I loved Burano when I visited, with my family, in 2014. I wrote an article about it on my blog, I’d love you to have a read and give me your opinion of my blog post. Esther 🙂


  2. I think the rain added a bit of charm to the scene. Love the different color houses. Well worth a visit. Thank you for showing the place, which I would never have heard of had it not been for you.


      1. I liked the rain, the added a different dimension to the photos, most of the tourist information always is sunny and bright, but that’s not life, the unexpected always happens. I think rain is cleansing. I just hope it wasn’t a cold, chilly rain.

  4. Hello Evelina (beautiful name, by the way),
    Thank you for following me. It must be serendipity but I’ve just completed a post with relevant travel photos and am about to upload it onto my site. I’ve decided to make Tuesdays my ‘Travel’ photo days.
    Friends have put photos of the coloured houses up on the Facebook but have only given the names of the places they’ve visited and no other details about the place. I shall enjoy the extra information you provide. 👍🏻🌹
    Thank you for visiting. I will also follow you.


    1. Hello, haha thank you so much, glad you like it too. You’re welcome. Travel Tuesday is a cool idea, I will give it a look. Glad to hear my posts provided the information you were looking for. More cool travel post to come every Friday-Stay tuned and thank you for the follow.

  5. I’ve lived in Italy and been to Venice on more than one occasion but I have never been to Burano, heard about it of course but haven’t seen many photos of it. Your shots are great. Looking forward to following and read more of your posts. Louise


  6. I love Burano! Been twice but only for a couple hours at a time. Would like to experience it once living like the locals for a few days. Must be magical strolling the island after us tourists have left and soaking it in… thanks for the great post!


    1. I too have only spent one day but great to visit and enjoy nonetheless. I agree, living like a local must be a different experience, more of an intimate\ authentic vibe without us tourist! Hope you get the chance to spend a while one day!


    1. Yes a little rain during my time in Burano, no hat but that’s okay, I still enjoyed this cute little town! You’re welcome, glad you enjoyed the post, more to come on Fridays 🙂


  7. Images pop so nicely when the sky is overcast. I love the sunshine, but it does burn the heck out of photographs. This little place on the globe looks wonderful. I’m taken with all the colors, as any self-respecting highly visual person should be. You doll up nicely as well. I especially love your red lipstick. In my opinion, no matter the attire, the lips need a touch of color to bring it all together. Brilliant!
