Torcello, the last of the islands in the Venetian Lagoon that I visited, is the lowest populated with only 11 permanent residents. Most of the island is untamed nature, however there is a group of buildings from 11th and 12th century including the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta.

And in case you were wondering, even on this almost deserted island, there are still plenty of souvenir stands ifyou have a burning desire to buy little magnets or bracelets to commemorate your time.
