Overview

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 .

About a 45 minute boat trip from the main city, the island is the historical origin of Venice but is now a quiet place to get away from the hoardes. A short walk from the quay are the very interesting church & Basilica housing beautiful...More

Away from the hustle and bustle. Not much to see or do unless you enjoy visiting museums and churches, unfortunately you are charged to enter everyone. Prices range from 3-5 euros for entrance. Nice walk though.

Most travelers to Venice go to Murano and Burano and miss this gorgeous place. You can take the vaporetto from Venice quite easily, see the mosaics, have lunch, and then, return via the vaporetto in a few hours. The mosaics are beyond belief. I enjoyed...More

Everyone who can do so should come here both for the beauty and to appreciate some relevant history. Around 1100 when mainland Italy was the playground of "barbarians" and no one was safe for long (some would say this hasn't changed since then!) some refugees(!)...More

The island of Torcello is really worth visiting. It still has the original mosaics. If you can go up on the Campanile, the view is worth the 250 steps (more or less)

Delightful little island with several places to eat. The 3 day pass on the water bus includes the islands - very good value.

We only had 45 minutes as part of a half day tour of the three islands and unlike Murano and Burano this seemed to be enough time. It is quite a walk from the boat to the church (very old at 639AD), the bridge is...More

Definitely worth the boat ride out to this Venetian island - the birthplace of Venice. Follow the path to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and visit the Medieval mosaics. Some of the most beautiful mosaic floors and wall art in the world.

Where Venito started, this is its roots, Don't miss it. We used a day ticket on the vaporetto, just a 10 minute vaporetto ride from Burano. And a good 10 minute walk from the pier is the oldest church in the area. The church is...More
