It is easy to spot the Venetian island of Burano by the sea: the colored houses act like a lighthouse. According to the name of the island, the local fisherman began to paint the houses in vibrant orange, red, yellow and purple colors so that they could be seen as they fished in the mist and could follow their colors. Now this practice has become a law, and if you live on the island and want to paint your home, you have to ask for government permission, which will assign a color to your home. For visitors, these colorful houses have become a place of interest.

A popular theory is that blue keeps mosquitoes away, while another is that the Jews introduced the blue when they became refugees from Hitler in the 1930s. It is said that the blue symbolizes heaven and it serves as a reminder to lead a spiritual life.
