If you look up photos of Burano you'll usually see bright blue skies, which match the brightly coloured houses that line the canals on this fishing island to the north of Venice. I didn't see it like that: leaving Venice in sunshine, the vaporetto vanished into thick fog which covered the whole lagoon north of the city.

The village was almost silent in the fog, with just a few people at an outdoor market.
