"Torcello" Torcello Island Tip by cheapskate

Torcello Island, Venice: 11 reviews and 25 photos


Quiet little island.... It's really open the wind blows really strong around here.

You get to see the range of snow cap mountains on the mainland which is very very breathtaking.

Here the buildings are built in Byzantine style. The chapel is nice. But i thought the entrance tickets to the church, bell tower and museum are a bit steep though. But i still went into the church and up the bell tower (campanile) coz i didn't go up the one in St. Mark's square.

Directions: Take a water bus to Torcello. It's the last stop. Journey takes about 1-1.5hrs.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
