The island of burano in Venice is linked to Mazzorbo by a bridge as its mentioned in burano Venice map. The current population of Burano is about 2,800. Burano Venice actually consists of four individual islands, which are separated by narrow, 10 meter wide canals, rio Pontinello in the west, rio Zuecca in the south und rio Terranova in the east. Originally, there were five islands and a fourth canal that was filled to become via e piazza Baldassare Galuppi, joining the former islands of San Martino Destra and San Martino Sinistra. Burano Venice has historically been subdivided in to five sestieri, much like the historical center of Venice. They correspond to the five original islands. The sixth sestiere is neighboring Mazzorbo.
