It is said that Torcello Island was the first settlement of the Venetian populations developed by those who were fleeing the barbarians invading the mainland. With only 11 inhabitants currently, it is hard to imagine that the islet was once a lively town with markets, luxurious palaces, churches and thousands of people living and trading there. Enjoy this guided tour for an in-depth and passionate experience – that you can’t find elsewhere – and learn about the origins of Venice. The guide will take you on a discovery of the antique treasures and landmarks of Torcello, including the stunning golden mosaic representing the Last Judgment. Highlights of the visit:
A private tour is also possible if you wish to discover the islet at your own pace and taste.
