Postcard: Sunset over Burano Island and Venice, Italy

BuranoatSunset

Sunset over the Venetian lagoon island of Burano, known for traditional, handmade lace, and located a short walk from the Venissa Wine Resort, where I stayed over the weekend.

Venice and the 118 islands that constitute its whole, testify to the ingenuity, artistry, and humor of humanity. The city is exquisite in every light, in every circumstance; quixotic in its ornate persistence, and seductive in the details of its decay.

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous. The painted sunset and the painted buildings in the 1st picture exquisitely complement each other. Venice would really be such a fascinating place to visit. And wow, 118 islands. Was not aware of this.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
