Burano, a watercolor painting


Have you ever seen a place that looks like a watercolor painting? Well, let us introduce you to Burano, a magical little island located in the Venetian Lagoon, in Italy, where houses painted in bright colors –all of them different– create a water path between them.

Searching for color inspiration around the world is something we love to do… Have you ever seen a place that looks like a watercolor painting? Well, let us introduce you to Burano, a magical little island located in the Venetian Lagoon, in Italy, where houses painted in bright colors –all of them different– create a water path between them.

When you arrive to Burano and find yourself in front of pink, yellow, blue, red, orange and green houses on both sides of a small canal, connected by typical Venetian bridges, you understand you’ve entered into a unique place and you’ll never erase that picture from your mind. 

There’s also more enchantment to that image when we go to the legend that says sailors used to paint their houses with bright colors so that they could find them when there was a lot of fog… Today, neighbors have to paint their houses very often and the colors are the top attraction of the small island.

So, very famous because of its lacework and its beautiful composition of colors, Burano is really easy to get to from Venice: just take the Vaporetto, which will take about half an hour, and enjoy visiting the leaning bell tower; eating outside, at one of the small and tasty restaurants, with such a colorful view and the live notes of the accordions; and the unthinkable: walking within a watercolor painting!
