Colourful Houses, Burano: 21 reviews and 58 photos
The gaily painted fishing houses along the canals were supposedly painted such viivd and differing colours so that the sailors would recognise their homes when returning from sea. Hardly likely though for the homes facing inland to the canals and other houses!
However it does help in property boundaries and for fishermen to discern their homes when returing in the dark after night time fishing.
