Burano is located approximately 9 km from the City of Venice and it is famous all around the world for the art of lace: the production started in the XV century, supported by the doge's wife Morosina Morosini, first, and by Giovanna Duodo, wife of the doge Pasquale Malipiero, later.
It is also known for its brightly-painted houses: during winter time Burano has many foggy days and when the fishermen come back after fishing they can easily recognize their own home.
The island's traditional cake is the "bussolà", a circle made by a sweet and hard dough with eggs, whose diameter is about 10 centimeters.
Burano is comprised of 4 smaller islands linked by a long bridge to the island of Mazzorbo.
