Finding a place to stay in Venice
Venice is a tiny city and there is never enough accommodation for every 20 million people visiting this beautiful city every year. Because every room counts, vacation rentals in Venice may prove a good money-saving alternative to traditional hotels.
Rent an apartment in Venice and you get a home with all the comforts and perks of independent living. You can cook, make tea or coffee, bring in alcohol, have guests over, work and rest whenever you like without being bothered. Apartments in Venice provide much more living space than a standard hotel room, and you will feel much more comfortable in a separate bedroom, a living room and with a fully functional kitchen.
If you are travelling with family or friends, renting a 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom vacation rental in Venice allows you to save money. Booking two or three adjacent hotel rooms is a pricey endeavour regardless of the city you want to stay in. Apartment rentals in Venice, however, are usually priced per unit, not per guest, which makes vacation rentals a great option for money-savvy travellers.
Because Venice is so tiny, you will be close to all the attractions and historic sites of the city - guaranteed, regardless of the location you choose for your Venice accommodation. There is a right combination of price, size, amenities and location that will make a perfect Venice vacation home.
Sweet Home Abroad offers apartment and villa vacation rentals all over Europe and North America as well.

Burano

The neighbour of Murano, the island Burano attracts tourists by romantic stories of its multicoloured houses and Venetian lace. Come here by vaporetto from Venice (keep the vaporetto route map for travels around other islands of the Venetian Lagoon) and you will be carried away by the rainbow of colour, light and bright contrast.

To see the mastery of lace makers, visit the Museum of Lace. Since the 15th century young girls have been taught the difficult art of lace making in monasteries, handiwork had grown in demand, and even today the lace makers of Burano create pieces for sale by hand. Disregard meters of lace for sale on the main square of the island - this is imported from Taiwan, whereas the true Burano artists sit right in front of their houses or workshops, paying no attention to tourists while creating thin and air-like Merletto. Some of them could tell you a story...

The legend goes that Burano men had not hurried home to their wives at nightfall, saying that they could not tell the identical houses on Burano apart and often arrived to the wrong door. To make sure their husbands did not have this excuse anymore, the women of Burano each painted their house into a different colour. The local fishermen have another version of the story! They loved their wives so much and wanted to make it home so fast that they decided to paint their houses to easily distinguish them and accost closest to them.

You can decide which version you like better while walking towards the 52 meters long leaning Campanila and the church San Martino. Here, just like in Venice, there are numerous canals and embankments, only much smaller. The water in Burano is special, everything is reflected in it like in a mirror, including the bright fishermen houses and even the unusually bright eyes of many local cats.
