Burano is one of the islands in the Venice lagoon and the interesting thing about this quiet place is all the brightly colored houses. It is said that the fisherman who lived here painted their houses bright colors so they would be easy to recognize when they returned from the sea. I'm not sure that still applies or if it ever did but, the tradition has lived on.
If you are there in the late afternoon as we were, the bright colors will reflected in the canals making interesting photo opportunities.
The colors are incredibly bright and vibrant on every street. It's impossible to put your camera down.
