Mazzorbo Tours

Mazzorbo
If you are looking to escape the crowds in Venice, Mazzorbo is the place to go. With only 350 residents and located far off the main tourist track, the small island is home to hundreds of artichoke fields, vineyards and fruit trees. Connected to larger Burano by a wooden bridge, Mazzorbo makes a great day trip from Venice combined with stops in Burano and the nearby island of Torcello. It has a rich history that dates to the year 640 and the most notable building on the island, the Santa Caterina Monastery, dates to 1283.

If visiting in the summer, you may want to time your visit to coincide with the annual fair held in the yard of the monastery. There, you can get a taste of life on the island by sampling local dishes and red wine and enjoying live music and games.

Also worth a visit is Venissa, an ancient estate that has been restored by a family of winemakers and converted into an excellent restaurant with a menu that changes daily.

Practical Info

The only way to get to Mazzorbo is by boat or by walking across the bridge from Burano. From Venice, take the Laguna Nord ferry from the Fondamente Nuove stop on the northern shore. It operates every 30 minutes and the trip from Venice to Mazzorbo will take just over half an hour. Alternatively, you might join a day tour that visits Torcello, Burano and Mazzorbo.
