Burano is all about colour-blocking!

Burano, much like Venice, is an archipelago of four islands linked by bridges. Travellers remain constantly intrigued by the coloured houses that are reflected on the green waters of channels, by the leaning bell tower, the calmness with which the elderly ladies embroider original Burano lace by their tombolo, laughing and chatting in squares among them.

Venice holiday

Was intimidating at first as many small allies and bridges to cross. But once I took a walking tour the city had many interesting stories and it gets interesting at every corner. It grows on you and the water town is one of a kind with tourist everywhere but it's also possible to find the serene and quite life of the people living there by just venturing out of the main tourist street into a slightly inner street. Overall a beautiful city but gets overcrowded in this summer season

A special and Unique experience

Venice is a very unique city based on back water lake and very beautiful by own. It is fully based on water and people commute by boat only. You will be amazed to see boat taxi, boat ambulance and Gondollas there. Local food, palace are very beautiful. Nearby attraction Murrano and Burrano are also very good.

Venice Overview

Venice, also known as the Queen of the Adriatic, is the capital city of the Veneto region. Located in the northern part of Italy, it is spread over an area of 414.57 square kilometres.

Venice is made up of 121 islets and connected with 435 bridges. Hence, it is known as the 'City of Bridges'. Furthermore, being surrounded by water bodies, most parts of the city is accessible only with the help of water transport.

Venice was founded in 421 AD on 25th March. Originally, people from cities like Padua, Aquileia, Treviso, Altino and Concordia settled as refugees here because of the invasion that took place in these places.

This led to the development of human civilisation on different islands in Venice. However, the city of Venice was hit by plague in the year 1348; as a result, the population of Venice became half.

Between the 9th and 12th century, Venice got converted into a city state. During this time, Marco Polo, a prominent name in the Venetian history, embarked on a legendary journey from Venice to China. Around the same time, the pirates along the Dalmatian coast were killed and the city started thriving as a trade centre.

Venice managed to emerge as a winner in the coming years by conquering the island of Cyprus and finding the first Ghetto. Besides, it also took active part in the crusades and war campaigns that were aimed at freeing Jerusalem.

All the buildings in this city are constructed on the wooden piles in water. Due to historical sites, cityscape, museums, galleries, shops and many other tourist attractions, Venice witnesses around 50,000 tourists a day (as per the record of 2007). The city has also gained importance worldwide because of the Carnival of Venice and the Venice Film Festival held annually.

The months of April, May, September and October comprise the main tourist seasons in Venice. The temperature remains pleasant throughout the day and the nights are cool.
