Burano Island

One of the most beautiful islands in the venetian lagoon is Burano: far from the centre of Venice, you can reach Burano only by boat. You can take a vaporetto (the public boat) or a private boat, it takes ca 45 minutes from Venice to the island....
A canal in Burano

When you arrive can really feel another world!!!!
Coloured houses, quiet streets, and the sound of the lagoon all around's a dream!!!!
Canal, boats and coloured houses
Bell tower

Burano is famous for its lace: you will admire old women sitting close to the doors and working with their "tombolo"....
You also must taste the typical "bussolai": yellow biscuits that are sooooooo good!!!!!

Spring in Venice

Spring is finally coming in Venice, but the weather is really crazy.....we are still having rain, humidity,  and cold days in the lagoon. 
Ernest Hemingway wrote that Venice is "the coldest town in the world"! I'm sure this is not so true, but maybe we should change our opinion about sunny Italy :-) :-)
Venice is in the Noth- East of the country, close to the Alpes and into the biggest lagoon in Europe. 
Winter time is really cold!!!!!!
But now we're all waiting for Spring: sunny days, good temperature, bright colors and that atmosphere that only Venice can give.....
Welcome Primavera!!!!!!!
