The next stop will be the fishermen island of Burano, famous for its colourful houses and peaceful atmospheres. This is a true paradise for photography lovers and for people who wish to explore a deep side of Venice, where local people still live their simple and ordinary life on a little island away from the crowds.
According to a local legend, Burano got its rainbow appearance thanks to the fishermen that lived there, who used to paint their houses in bright and light colours so that they could find their way home while coming back from the sea. The island is also known for its rare artisan lace.
The last stop of the tour will be the quiet and green island of Torcello, a little island suspended between mystical tales and the ruins of a glorious past not many people are aware of.
