Torcello is an island north of Venice in Italy.
Vaporetto from Venice and Punta Sabbioni.
The island is small and entirely walkable. The cathedral, museum, and inns are a 10 to 15-minute stroll down Fondamenta Borgognoni, a path along the canal, from the vaporetto stop. You can also take a gondola down the canal to the cathedral.
