Burano

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageA peaceful village which has brightly painted houses lining the canals. As this village’s fishing based economy dwindled, the residents took to lace making to earn a living. As soon as you enter the village, by the time you reach the Piazza Galuppi, the main square you would have passed dozens of stalls of lace vendors. These ladies are very proud of their unique product so they don’t offer great bargains. Authentic handmade Burano lace costs $1,000 to $2,000 for a 10-inch piece.
The Museo del Merletto or the Lace Museum offers an awesome insight into the delicate intricacies of lace making. The museum also serves as a skills center as on weekdays one can see women practice lace making. Sometimes a few pieces are also put up for sale. 
Address: Piazza Galuppi 187. 041/730034
Musei Civici pass EUR 18. Apr.-Oct., daily 10-5pm; Nov.-Mar., daily 10-4 pm
Location: Islands of the Lagoon
