The true colors of Murano and Burano

Hey guys! How are you all doing? So today I decided to talk a bit about Murano and Burano islands, close to Venice. Yeah… I know I should have started talking about Venice. But I think these beautiful islands are as awesome as Venice and needed a post of itself.

I was lucky with the weather and got the opportunity to enjoy the islands and what it had to offer. The boat ride from one island to the other island was quite nice, a bit chilly and windy, but that is how boat rides work out! LOL 

Murano is well known by its glass and in fact it is very unique. You can actually visit the factory where they manufacture the glass and have a sneak peak of how they produce it and how they make the different colours you see in the glass. The shops are filled up with items made of that traditional handmade glass. Each shop bears different and unique items, no shop will have the same item as the previous shop, with the same coloured glass. All of the items different and unique. Quite amazing!
Burano is an island filled with colours and water. Is just the perfect island to make your spirit lighten up, with so much life and so many different colours. The streets fill up with people and there is a lot of shops selling all sort of touristic items and typical Italian stuff. There are a lot of restaurants where you can pick and choose where to have a meal and if the weather allows you can sit outside and enjoy the movement and the surroundings.

When visiting Burano and Murano you must take a full day off to enjoy it and with all those boat rides it will take some time to go around from one island to another island. These two islands are quite small so you can visit them during one day and then go back to Venice. 

When and if you go there I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and let me know of your adventures out there.

Take care and Thank you :)

P.S.- I forgot to mention that the last 4 pictures are from Burano and the rest is from Murano! :S
