Vibrant Street in Burano Italy

Vibrant Street in Burano Italy

Vibrant Street of Burano, Italy

The most distinct feature of the Burano Island is its vast collection of brightly colored houses, which are some of the most photographed in the world. This island is nestled in the Venetian Lagoon in the northern part of Italy.

The colors of the houses are not random. These follow a specific system that originated from the time that it was first developed. If an owner of a home wants to repaint his facade, he needs to send a formal request to the government. He will then be given a set of colors that are permitted to use for that location.

Other points of interests include the Museum and School of Lacemaking, the Oratorio di Santa Barbara, and the Church of San Martino.
