I’ve just been sent a vastly improved photo of the Bisol Dorona vineyard I was lucky to visit a couple of weeks back (click for a full sized view). The Venissa hotel is the cream coloured buildings at the bottom – recently restored old buildings, well worth an overnight stay, the building immediately behind is the Venissa restaurant. (You hop off the ferry at the front of the hotel).

The dorona vineyard is spread out from the restaurant to just beyond the abandoned chapel with tower. The strip of land running from the central pond to the lefter-most corner of Mazzorbo island, with the bridge to Burano, are now bursting with vegetables used by the islanders and of course the restaurant. Towards the jetty on he left are fruit trees used for the same purpose.
A gentle stroll from the hotel, through the vineyard, over the connecting bridge takes you to the island of Burano. Here the tight streets buzz during the day with tourists, but is so attractive and colourful (photos on Spittoon Extra) that it is well worth a wander.
