Venetoinside.com takes you to discover this magic and mysterious place with a tour between past and present! Torcello is a magic and mysterious island, with a timeless charm, rich of history and surrounded by enchanting panoramas.

Venetoinside.com, with the tour ‘The Torcello Basilica and its secret itineraries’, will help you to discover in details the most important monument of the island, making your experience at Expo Veneto 2015 unique and original.

Torcello, in the past, used to be one of the crucial centres in the Venetian lagoon. With the increasing importance of Venice, the inhabitants of Torcello started to move away from the small island.

The tour will also allow you to visit two areas which remained inaccessible for centuries: the sacristy and the crypt.

The solemn atmosphere of the Basilica suggests to the visitors the importance of the site and gives them an experience between past and present. During your stay in Venice for Expo 2015, allow yourself an original day tour in Torcello to discover its art and be conquered by its mystery and charm.
