My luck was holding strong when I randomly saw that Canadian bloggers, Hecktic Travels were also heading to Venice as well and invited me to stay with them in their apartment. Jaime left me with one piece of advice, above all I must see Burano.
Burano is a series of four small islands connected by bridges, much like Venice, and is painted as brightly as El Caminito in the city of Buenos Aires and also originally a fishing village although without all the crime of Boca.
Burano is known for its lacework and apparently there is a lace museum there, but all we did was walk around taking more photos than anyone would ever need.
No two house colours are the same. The colours follow a system and if someone wants to paint their house they need to get permission and will be assigned a colour appropriate for their home.
Jaime was right, Burano is definitely something you need to see when you go to Venice.
