In addition to Murano and Burano, famous all over the world respectively for the homonymous glass and colored houses, there is also an island immersed in the green of the Venice Lagoon and in silence: Torcello.
Torcello, one of the oldest places in the lagoon, is currently inhabited by only 11 people.
However, it seems that once it counted at least 30,000, but then with the growth of Venice and the changing environmental conditions, the inhabitants of Torcello migrated towards a more stable working future, thus abandoning the beautiful island.
Even today in the suggestive Torcello Island you can find monuments with an incredible history:
- Church of Santa Fosca
- Devil’s Bridge
- Torcello Museum
- Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta
- Throne of Attila
At Casa Museo Andrich you can find all the warmth, history and beauty of Torcello.
Book your visit at the Andrich House Museum!
We are open all year from Friday afternoon to Sunday.
