My goal when I went to Torcello was to find the stone shutters on Santa Maria Assunta, as shown on this postcard.
But, I was foiled. The door leading onto the path that would take me past these windows was locked, and will be for some time, until the work on the campanile is completed, in fact. So, the only photo I could get looked like this. That’s the campanile you can spot in the background.
There were a number of these stairways to access the canal, but all of them had overgrown pathways leading to them.
I was hungry! Thank goodness there was a place to sit, enjoy the silence, and eat.
I ordered the risotto, which is usually available only for a 2 person serve. But they provided a single serving, and it was delicious!
What a relaxing day this turned out to be.
