When I visited Venice a couple of weeks earlier, I was planning my trip mostly with the help of fellow travel bloggers and their inspiring reports. While searching the web, I stumbled upon a wonderful post on Travelettes about Burano. It’s one of those tiny Venetian Islands that can only be reached via boat. Although I was quite exhausted after a hot morning running around in Venice, I still made it to Burano. And what shall I say? I was completely fascinated by the colourful houses, the relaxed atmosphere and the intimate cafés. If you’ll ever visit Venice: Make sure to plan a half-day trip to Burano and check out the small shops, little alleys and quiet piazzas.
