I loved the beautiful linens and art on this island. Wish I'd had more time. We also found a delicious pastry shop and tried several different kinds of goodies.
Next we headed for the Island of Burano, famous for beautiful handmade glass art. At the factory where we visited, they have made the glass chandeliers for the Bellaggio in Las Vegas. They are very expensive.
