Museo del Merletto
"Merletto" is the Italian word for "lace" and it's the focus at this museum.
Spend a couple of hours on tiny Burano, "the jewel of the Venetian lagoon," famous for its magnificent lace. If you're lucky, you may even spy a traditional lace maker sitting outside one of the bright and colorful little houses. If lace making is of interest to you, make sure to check out the Museo del Merletto, or Lace Museum to view collections that date back to the 17th century.
