The Colorful Houses of Burano - Sundays in My City

A popular Venetian destination is the island of Murano. Murano is known for glass making.  We went there.  I was bored out of my mind and mom and Gran weren't that impressed either.  So we hopped back on the water bus and moved on to Burano; an island known for lace making.  I wasn't looking forward to this stop and lace making was equally boring for me but the colors on this island were incredible and taking pictures of the houses was more than enough to occupy me so mom and Gran could do their thing without me wanting to run away.

There were so many colors!!!

Orange over purple with teal blue shutters!
Apparently there is striped fabric available to match every house color so that you can fashionably let some air in without giving all the tourists a view of your living room.

Colorful reflections!

Such a beautiful little island! I'm glad I got to see it.

Have you ever been pleasantly surprised by a place you didn't want to visit?

  1. The colors of the houses are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your photos.

  2. Oh my what a totally cool place. I love all the colours


  3. Wow, I love all the colors-- it's so happy there!
    I was in Venice once and it poured rain the entire time. We stopped at Murano and bought a couple of glass pieces. Hmm, I wonder were they are now. I think I'd rather have visited here!
    Happy SIMC,

  4. All the colors just make me happy. I was wondering what all the striped curtains were for. Interesting. And I love how they hang their laundry on the front of the buildings. Looks like a unique place to visit.

  5. So pretty! My favourite picture is the first one.

  6. Very cool pictures! I am sorry I missed this when I was in Venice.

  7. I love the colors found in abundance in the European countries. Lovely shots. Thank you for stopping by Sanukipity and leaving the kind words.
