Having returned to Burano from Mazzorbo, we walked around the island, taking in the sights of the pastel-colored homes. The rainbow of houses on Burano reminds me a lot of the Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan, South Korea, and it’s almost as if the island was built specifically for social media photos. Burano is also home to an old stone tower that’s not quite standing upright. Pisa isn’t the only town in Italy with a leaning tower, though the one on Burano is largely unknown to most people who visit Venice. We walked all around Burano for an hour or so but then needed to head back to the ferry terminal because it was starting to get late in the day. As we were waiting for the ferry I could see the nearby island of Torcello not too far to the north. I’ve wanted to get out there for years now since I’ve read that it’s where you can see what the main part of Venice used to look like before it got developed. On this trip, however, we were out of time and we boarded the ferry to start the long trip back to Venice.
