Ever since I came across it on Instagram (where else), I’ve wanted to visit this beautiful colorful little island called Burano, but whenever I’d go to Venice, there was never enough time. Finally, one day my boyfriend and I decided to dedicate a full day just to relax, enjoy each others company and do whatever makes us happy, so I saw it as a perfect opportunity for us to go and check it out.
Our adventure started at 7am, when we had to catch a train from Vicenza to Venice and only 45 minutes later, we arrived. I must admit you, wondering the empty streets of Venice is really something special, it’s truly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. We made a quick stop for breakfast in one of the local pasticcerias, took a boat and headed to Burano.
Before we got there, I really didn’t know what to expect, I’ve only ever seen photos of it, but I truly hopped it was as beautiful as I imagined it. And it was. It was all colorful and magical and I instantly felt like we stepped into a fairytale. We started exploring the island and with each step I fell more and more in love with light pink houses, tiny bridges, flowerpots everywhere… It’s hard to believe some people actually live here and get to experience the magnificence of it everyday. But, since we’re not that lucky and only had a few hours, all we wanted was to get lost in the dozens of short narrow streets and soak in as much beauty as possible.
The only thing I didn’t quite enjoy is that it’s overcrowded with tourists, so if you want to have some time for you and Burano alone, I would recommend you to skip the lunch at 1pm and go explore the island at it’s quiet times. Plus it is the perfect opportunity for you to get a photo in front of any tiny pastel house, without having ten people in the background doing the same thing 🙂
After walking around for hours, we decided to end our little journey by treating ourselves to some aperitivo, just because a perfect day deserves to be ended in no other manner. Now, lets talk about the outfit I wore:
What I Wore
Knowing it was going to be almost 40 degrees celsius, I decided to go for a light, easy going outfit. White is the color I’ve been constantly wearing the entire summer season, so it was no surprise that for this occasion my dress of choice was wide white cotton one from Zara, which I combined with white cross-body bag from Moschino and nude color espadrilles from H&M. For a pop of color, I accessorized with a bright orange twilly from H&M around my wrist, which I absolutely love.
Have you ever been to Burano and do you have some place you would really like to visit?
I would love to hear about it 🙂
