The property is located on the island of Torcello, just a five-minute walk from the vaporetto (waterbus) stop that connects to the center of Venice. Torcello was built and became important in the fifth century after thousands of people fled here after their hometowns were invaded. In the center of town stands the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, featuring original mosaics from between the seventh and 11th centuries. It also features a bell tower that can be reached via a staircase of steep steps, but is worth the climb if you’d like beautiful views over the island and lagoon. Torcello is also home to restaurants. For a wider selection of restaurants as well as a market and shops, visit Burano, just five-minutes away by vaporetto.
