  • Well worth a visit to see spectacular religious mosaics from the 12th century in this ancient church, then have lunch in style at Locanda Cipriani adjacent.  more »
  • A must see place. Great interior and lovely setting. The church is over 1000 years old and still active.  more »
  • It's located on Torcello, so it takes a Vaporetto ride to get there. This is the original island where people settled in the lagoon, and this is the first church in Venice. It has some original Byzant...  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...
