  • This is a museum of bits and pieces - but so worth the visit because it is on the most delightful and little visited tiny island. This is the very original Venice - there before Venice itself, so the ...  more »
  • I was quite confused, by what I saw at this small, tiny museum. It lacked organization, structure, cohesiveness. It was as if it did not have a purpose at all: a few, archaeological finds strewn about...  more »

  • Great little museum. I was very impressed with the collection and the use of technology. Way above expectations
  • Terrible Torcello. Quite boring.
  • The small but interesting collection is divided between two buildings, the Palazzo dell’Archivio (archaeological finds from the mainland) and, in my opinion, the more interesting Palazzo del Consiglio (medieval artefacts, many of which come from the handful of churches and convents that once flourished on Torcello). The exhibits are well displayed with labels in both Italian and English.
  • Very isolated place ... the town seems deserted.

  • If there are any in stock a few days visit to Torcello. Interesting will train on a boat, which will be held by the cemetery island of San Michele, then past the island of Murano glass, Burano lace island. Behind the blue and green colors will dissolve the lagoon of Venice. If you are lucky enough to be here in low season, you will feel peace and even puustynnost' of this place. Few people here even in summer. Venice was built after the village on this island and it and killed. Residents left Torcello, founded back in the 5th century. Stayed here a few. Explore Santa fosca Church and a large Basilica of Torcello. Mosaic in them are very different from Ravennskih uproshhennost'ju, ornamentalizmom, but this does not diminish their grandiosity. Great place. Meals can be enjoyed in any Cafe-them a little and they are cheaper than in Venice.
