A rainbow of colour
Around the world, there are hundreds of cities with brightly coloured streets and incredible graffiti that help to bring the streets alive with vibrant hues. Some streets have rows of houses that are known as a “rainbow row” because of the variety of colours. Some streets have ornate decorations flying high above as an art installation or as part of a local festival. And some streets are even painted varying shades of the same colour that means something to the community. We’ve rounded up 13 of the most colourful streets in the world to add to your list of places to visit.
