Call me basic or nerdy or whatever, but if it weren’t for the combination of Pinterest and Rick Steves, I probably would have gone my entire life not knowing about the existence of Burano. For those of you who haven’t heard of Burano, it’s one of the islands that make up the city of Venice, Italy, and is a 45 minute water taxi ride from mainland Venezia. One of the popular excursions people make when visiting Venice is to take a day trip to both Murano and Burano to see the famous Venetian glass blowing and lace making, respectively. But Burano is also known as one of the most colorful cities in the world. WE. HAD. TO. GO.
It was a rainy day in Venice and we missed the first boat because someone had to have two slices of pizza for breakfast (guilty as charged!)… We ended up taking the afternoon boat straight to Burano to visit at magic hour. Besides marrying Joel, this was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Burano in the late afternoon on a Monday is PERFECT.
I mean, all the heart eye emojis, right?! We spent a couple hours on the island just drinking it all in. My jaw was at the floor for most of it because I love all things colorful so, so much. Rick Steves and I would recommend visiting Burano in the late afternoon/early evening on a weekday to avoid the crowds AND MAKE SURE YOUR CAMERA IS CHARGED.
p.s. if you notice that my jumpsuit ebbs on the sheer side, I apologize. If you didn’t notice then IT’S NOT REALLY DON’T GO BACK AND LOOK, YOU PERV.
