Overview
More
This small island is a bit off the usual Venetian path, but it’s worth seeing. Its Santa Maria Assunta church houses impressive mosaics, its bell tower offers great surrounding views—and it’s home to Locanda Cipriani, a well-regarded restaurant and hotel that played host to writing legend Ernest Hemingway .

We stopped here out of sheer curiosity on our way to Burano. So glad we did. It was a respite from the crowds. We enjoyed the green space, bird songs and laid back feel. Also there was only one artist with his stand, but his...More

Don't dream of visiting here on one of those wretched 3 island tours (you won't have time to see the even limited sights). Get a vaporetto 12 from Fondamente Nove, 41 minute ride. Torcello is a small, green place which is mostly of interest as...More

This island is worth visiting, but I would suggest going early, since throngs of people started to arrive. At the dock, there is a walkway along the canal. Lovely way to walk to the ancient church, one of the oldest in Venice. I wanted to...More

We made a day trip out of Burano, Mazzorbo & Torcello using the water buses. We thought it was worthwhile to visit all of the islands to see what they had to offer. Be sure to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta (625 AD)

This was a very pleasant walk, we loved this little island, like a countryside. The church is nice, and the views from the campanille are very nice.

Water bus number 12 usually runs from Fodemante Nove (Venice) to burano murano and torcello, each island is worth visiting.
