Torcello, founded in the 5th Century is one of the oldest inhabited islands in the region and is home to the area's oldest church.
I liked the pink street lanterns against tree limbs and the grey sky:
Once a thriving village, today Torcello has fewer than 100 residents and I noticed a house for sale so there may another change in the near future. It is said that Ernest Hemingway liked and frequented the island.
Snow-dusted statues near the island's cemetery.
Santa Maria Assunta Cathedral and the Church of Santa Fosca are the primary sites of interest today.
