Everybody know Venice, but only very few also knows that in a 20 minutes ferry from Piazza San Marco you can reach a little island that has same bones and blood as Venice (houses, canals, bridges) but a completely different look. Burano is Venice little sister, a pretty island in the northern part of the lagoon, famous for its lace-making and for its brightly-coloured fishermen’s houses.
Essentially there are no tourist attractions there and, despite “her opulent Big Sister”, Burano looks very humble and real. The colors of the houses are nothing more than the reflection of the people, all with their own unique personalities and stories.
At Casa Burano guests live side-by-side with locals. The thirteen rooms are located in many different areas of the island, nearby the old fish market, in the main piazza, and along the beautiful rainbow-colored canals. The island is still inhabited by fishermen and lace makers – a community that continues to follow the rhythms of nature; genuine, real people.
