Embroidery is a century-old craft bound to Burano’s cultural identity. Today, Martina Vidal carries out this tradition in her atelier. Take a tour and/or book an embroidery class with a local lacemaker.
THE LAST GOLDSMITH
The Berta Battiloro family is the last family of goldsmiths left in Venice (and in Europe) to practice the craft of forging gold by hand. Visit their workshop and experience this refined art first-hand.
SPORT E NATURA
Thanks to the partnership with the rowing association Voga & Para, guests can experience the magic of rowing (vogare) in the lagoon and explore the beautiful islands of Native Venice while guided by the master rowers of Burano.
BOATING ALONG THE LAGOON
Domenico is one of the last remaining fishermen of Burano and he still carries out the traditional method of fishing for moeche, or lagoon soft shell crabs. Discover the lagoon and its traditional fishing techniques with him.
