 Back to Home Page         Back to Italy Main Page       To Venice Island Page

The island of Murano is the home of Venetian glass, arguably the best production of hand blown glass in the world.

Burano is still a relatively sleepy fishing village, renowned for its lace making.  The houses are very colorfully painted.  No tourists are allowed to spend the night on the island.
