From: Venice Waterbus Stops
Tis where Venice began: It's an island in the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, across from Mazzorbo and Burano, and at one time--more than 1,500 years ago--it was the largest and most important settlement in the lagoon, with a population of 20,000 or more.
Today, only a handful of people live on Torcello, but it's a fascinating place to visit. Attractions include the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta (a cathedral dating back to 639 AD), the adjacent Church of Santa Fosca, and a Campanile or bell tower that offers fine views of the island and the channels that wind through land and mudflats that are submerged at high tide.
The Torcello waterbus station is served by:
Line 9 is a shuttle boat from Burano, with a travel time of only five minutes.
Line 12 is the renamed LN or "Lagoon North" line, which runs from Venice's Fondamente Nove station (pier A) to the commuter stations at Punta Sabbioni and/or Treporti with intermediate stops at Murano Faro, Mazzorbo, Torcello, and Burano.
Torcello has several restaurants that are open during the warmer months, including the much-celebrated Locanda Cipriani, which is also a luxurious inn with five rooms. Another place to stay is the Executive Suite Venezia, a vacation apartment with a restaurant, bar, and children's playground on the premises.
