Overview

This small island is a bit off the usual Venetian path, but it’s worth seeing. Its Santa Maria Assunta church houses impressive mosaics, its bell tower offers great surrounding views—and it’s home to Locanda Cipriani, a well-regarded restaurant and hotel that played host to writing legend Ernest Hemingway .

We made a day trip out of Burano, Mazzorbo & Torcello using the water buses. We thought it was worthwhile to visit all of the islands to see what they had to offer. Be sure to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta (625 AD)

This was a very pleasant walk, we loved this little island, like a countryside. The church is nice, and the views from the campanille are very nice.

While visiting Venice it could be interesting have a trip to Torcello island: it is the ancient place from which Venice originated. It is completely different from the characteristic and touristic Burano, you can find there a little village with the cathedral of S. Fosca...More

Went there because I was curious to see the famous mosaic and it is really worth while seeing, although the entrance fee is quite expensive for a church in the middle of nowhere

Water bus number 12 usually runs from Fodemante Nove (Venice) to burano murano and torcello, each island is worth visiting.
