Torcello is aptly known as the Mother of Venice, it being the third island of the lagoon. It offers a lot of charm and it is positively antediluvian. Strolling across a grassy meadow as well as traversing an ancient stone bridge is a common thing.
Cattedrale di Torcello is known for its Byzantine mosaics. It stands in a grassy meadow beside an 11th century campanile.
