Basilica di S.M. Assunta & Campanile Torcello Reviews
Lovely old Basilica with a Campanile with a grand view Jun 16, 2006
Torcello is a lovely island, where it feels like the time has stopped.
Its basilica is the oldest cathedral of the laguna, and evidence of the first settlement here. The interior is wonderfully decorated. You can find mosaics probably made by the workers from Ravenna.
As mostly all the cathedrals, it has a bell tower - Campanile. I recommend to climb to it and get a lovely view of this charming islands. You will see some wineries, farms and I was lucky that even saw a wedding.
