    The location is exceptional: it's good for what you pay, you still pay for recorded explanations, any leaflet or publication with the ticket of entry... it tells you the shop for purchase of books!... I forgot: at the entrance, you the "mouth", into it, we don't answer to your requests for information... y' enough to meet people jaded and not smiling. Really, what? If you don't like your job, no contact with tourists, then change. I forgot: impossible to take pictures... to buy cards...!

    I think there are a few places so solitary and vivid and superfrequentati at the same time for their beauty. Torcello is unique, and you have to go there and come back many times to grasp the nuances and flavors. Torcello exists for each season ... The history, art and beauty are everywhere ... so how is always present unutterable emotion of wide open spaces open lagoon.

    We visited Torcello island to visit this church, as I had heard about it. Walking up to it from the waterbus stop it didn't look very impressive from the outside and I visited the first small church (...  more »

  • 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!
  • A friend with a private boat suggested this place to my sister and I. It was beautiful. Wish I had more time!
  • Great view on top of the belltower. Watch the time when you go up because of the bells!
  • Small, beautiful church, practically hidden. You wouldn't expect to see it in such a small, distance island, but it helps you understand that the old times really prosper Venice was not just the City of Venice, but it also had a lot of population in the nearby islands.
  • The price for this church is not very friendly... 9 euro for the church and Bell tower, including a free audio guide, which just include 6 points inside the church. The mosaic is fantastic. Bell tower is not hard to climb, but it's really tall... You can get a pretty view from the top. You can even see Burano and it's colorful buildings. However, the protection at the top kinda ruin the fun of taking pictures... There is also a museum to visit, which cost extra money. Tickets are cash only, which doesn't make sense...
