Why locals love it

Escaping from the mass of people can be also done by cathcing the vaporetto (water bus) and taking refuge in this beautiful small island. This was one of the first settlements of the city after Altino when Venetians were attacked by the Barbarians.

Why you should visit it

This treasure in the north part of Venetian lagoon helds Santa Maria Assunta's Cathedral with a huge Byzantine mosaic representing the Universal Judgement, the earliest remaining mosaic in the neighbourhood of Venice. In the courtyard of the island there is the large stone throne known as Attila's Throne

Special tip

Do not miss to enter the Cathedral and admire the mosaic
