The small island of Burano greets visitors with an unparalleled blast of colour. Brightly-hued paint covers every one of the buildings in the small town in the Venetian Lagoon.

Venice’s verticality sees numerous areas swathed in shadow even when the sun is at its highest. Burano’s lower buildings and more open plan lets the light bounce from the rainbow colours lining the canals.
