Away from the hustle and bustle. Not much to see or do unless you enjoy visiting museums and churches, unfortunately you are charged to enter everyone. Prices range from 3-5 euros for entrance. Nice walk though.

Most travelers to Venice go to Murano and Burano and miss this gorgeous place. You can take the vaporetto from Venice quite easily, see the mosaics, have lunch, and then, return via the vaporetto in a few hours. The mosaics are beyond belief. I enjoyed...More

The island of Torcello is really worth visiting. It still has the original mosaics. If you can go up on the Campanile, the view is worth the 250 steps (more or less)

Definitely worth the boat ride out to this Venetian island - the birthplace of Venice. Follow the path to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and visit the Medieval mosaics. Some of the most beautiful mosaic floors and wall art in the world.
Where Venito started, this is its roots, Don't miss it. We used a day ticket on the vaporetto, just a 10 minute vaporetto ride from Burano. And a good 10 minute walk from the pier is the oldest church in the area. The church is...More
Visited Torcello to go to locanda Cipriana. The island is a flower filled delight full of birdsong and very relaxed. The church is extraordinary.
