After shopping for a couple of very nice items in Schiavon, a store in Murano, the owner graciously offered to have us taken by her private boat to Burano where we were met by Nora who works for Lidia, a store owned by Paula and her son David. Burano as everyone knows is very well known for its lace and... More

This was one of the best stops of our tour of Italy. We visited Burano to see the lovely island and had no plans to go shopping. Walking down the street, the shop caught my eye. I ventured inside to discover that this family run shop had it's own lace museum inside for free. Beautiful pieces! I went back out... More

I visited this FABULOUS lace shop/factory, in this stunning and colorful town, and marveled at not only the shop itself but all of the treasures that I found to be show cased inside... More

Quite lovely pieces of work all hand made... From dresses, to table cloths, mantles, beddings, shoe patches, runners, monogramed hankies, fans, etc. There was an old lady, maybe in her 70s, creating small patches for a pair of black pumps... Such a sweet lady who has been doing it for years. A young lady, maybe in her teens, was also... More

When my wife and I were there in October 2010 the Lace Museum was closed for renovations (I understand that it has now re-opened) The Lace Museum is one of the Venetian museums covered by the museum card and I understand that it is worth a visit.
