Casa Burano

You might have seen my Burano pictures all over my Instagram in the past days… couldn’t help to post them all, I simply loved the scenario of this little colored island.

It’s funny how my hometown is only half hour away, but last time I was in Burano it was probably more than 30 years ago during a primary school field trip 😉 When you grow up surrounded by beauty it’s quite normal giving it for granted. After college I started traveling the world, and every time I am back to Italy it’s much easier to reach Venice (30 minute train) than Burano (Train+Vaporetto). This time I thought it was nice to bring Olivia to see those little colored houses, and imagine which one would be ours. Guess which color she would has chosen!

To avoid the crowd of tourists coming on a day trip from Venice, I planned to spend the night there, to be able to enjoy the slow life of this little island, admiring the old ladies sitting outside their colored houses sewing the famous Burano lace, the fishermen coming back at sunset with their boats and being able to sit at the edge of the canal. There are not many options to spend the night on the island, and we chose Casa Burano, an hotel made of few little colored houses in different areas of the island, beautifully restored in cooperation with local artists, and some of the most famous Veneto region design companies, such as Arclinea, Moroso, Orsoni, Fontana Arte and others. I promised to myself not to wait 30 more years before going back there, and actually have a plan to bring my husband on our next trip to Italy.
