While reading about things to do on Torcello, I came across a reference to the presence of this throne on the island and couldn’t resist seeking it out. The undecorated white stone “throne” can’t be missed if visiting the Museo Provinciale di Torcello. It stands unlabeled in the grass near the entrance with other ancient artifacts and resembles an easy chair in form.

But it turns out that Attila the Hun never sat on it, according to museum staff and various historians. The name came from a legend about his stay on Torcello, which also never occurred. But the throne does date back to the 5th century, when Attila lived. Apparently the island’s governor sat on it during various meetings.

Now, tourists sit there for a photo op. I watched many pose and move on to authentic historical sights, such as the extraordinary early mosaics in the Church of Santa Maria Assunta.

Apparently the link to Attila is a bit tortuous and flaky. But who cares - it's part of Venice's history. And it's just there in front of the Basilica in plain view and most people walk past without noticing it. Another great photo opportunity.

Well, get the feeling of sitting on the throne and get yourself clicked. That's the best to do on the quick Torcello visit.

This throne, which apparently dates from the fifth century, is said to have been possessed by Attila the Hun.
At that time, people fled the mainland to settle in Torcello and thus found Venice.
Many people have sat on it in the meantime, but no Attila the Hun, tourist trap.

In the external space between the basilica and the museum, you will find several historical finds, including this graceful stone throne, called the throne of Attila.
