  • Quite stunning mosaics dating from a millennium ago. The Last Judgment is one of the wonders of the world. Everyone who goes to Torcello should visit both the Basilica and the Chiesa next door.  more »
  • The basilica is impressive and very well preserved with frescoes and mosaics. A little overkill ticket 5 euros but you do it again with the knowledge to contribute to the conservation of an exceptional site.

  • If you have a few days in Venice, make some time to visit this 7th-century Basilica on one of the lagoons agricultural islands. The mosaics alone are worth the trip out here. You can then take the No....  more »

  • A bit pricey, but beautiful Byzantine mosaics. Apparently it's the oldest building in the whole Venice lagoon. Lovely setting as well and worth exploring round the back and seeing the view antis the water. Topped off visit to Torcello nicely and great add-on to a visit to Burano. Would recommend.
  • This church is the highlight of Torcello. There isn't much else to see on this island. With that said, I highly recommend a visit to this church if you're interested in history and Byzantine art. The Byzantine influenced mosaic art is jaw dropping, and it's hard to believe it is 1,000 years old, and in the original condition. Get the all day ferry ticket for Murano, Burano and Torcello for 20 euros.
  • Amazing mosaics and audio hand set is great for information about the images. .climb the bell tower it's well worth it
  • This place is really magic! The cathedral is wonderful and the mosaics are incredible, expeccially the one with the Holy Mary, 5 meter high. All the island is wonderful, quite and relaxing. It worth a visit for sure!
  • Very peaceful place with good views of the lagoon.
