Murano And Burano Italy

They are known as the famous islands of the Venetian lagoon. Located in Venice, northern Italy, Murano and Burano display an archipelago of islands, separated by wide canals and joined together by bridges. Other islands included in the network are Torcello, san Servolo, san Giorgio Maggiorie among others. While Venice contains many islands, Murano and Burano Italy are known for their glasswork, lacework, and painted buildings.

The islands are densely populated, being homes of anglers. For instance, in Burano the population is at approximately 13000 people per square kilometre. Chains of residential buildings cover the islands, with only a few green areas remaining uncovered. Murano is popular for its glassmaking industries that date back to 1291.
