The visits to Murano and Burano are worth it. I didnt find Torcello very interesting. Apart from a church and a Bell tower (that you have to pay to visit) and a few restaurants, there's nothing else. The ride was nice. The guide spoke 5 languages and spoke too fast. So it was kind of hard to follow
