Venice, home to canals that feature brightly coloured homes and streets, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its Burano Island is filled with colour, from the homes to the jade-green waters of the canals and lagoon. Even the boats in the waters are different colours, bringing even more vibrancy to the city. Bridges connect different sides of the canal streets to one another making it super easy to explore the colourful walkways.
