Here are a few pictures from the lovely island of Burano.... for anyone going to Venice I recommend going out to the islands.... A day at Burano, its sister island Mazzorbo (linked by a wooden bridge, worth getting off the boat at Mazzorbo and walking to Burano) and Torcello (to come later) are well worth it.

Burano is famed for its Lace!

Looking back to Burano from Mazzorbo

Venice from the Grand Canal

I've just come back from the lovely city of Venice a city famed for its canals. The weather could have been better (!) but here are a few pictures from a trip down the grand canal.
