  • A few minutes by boat from the lido or From San Marco this really small island is a real oase of greenery, a beautiful lined garden. Several facilities, including some even for overnight accommodation, a bar, a barbecue for public use and a large exhibition area and the museum of madness, having been on the island as well as a monastery also an asylum The museum can only be visited in two time slots so inquire well. As soon as you land a beautiful tomato work welcomes you

  • This island was home to a convent, and then, until 1978 (Basaglia law), psychiatric asylum and center of studies and research on mental infirmities, among the most important in Italy. Now, after careful, painstaking and radical renovation, it offers the public a very interesting museum, full of tools and equipment used for the care of patients, it has a hotel, a modern café bar, a restaurant, a well-groomed park, a place of peace, quiet and harmony. It's worth a visit with the right times, without haste to savor the whole atmosphere calmly

  • This is a nice and small church but I would not go out of the way to see it since there are much nicer churches in the main part of Venice. The main downsides are that it's small, not exactly well-maintained, and the artwork isn't anything spectacular. But if you have time or are in this island be sure to step in and take a quick look! There are paintings for each station of the cross inside. If you find the door closed, go up the stairs in the door to the left of the church entrance. Up there is the entrance to Museo Del Manicomio where the person there should have a key and may open the church for you to view if you ask. When I visited this is how I saw the church so I would give it a try if the church door is closed.
  • Peace and a green area where you can spend a relaxing afternoon, and splendid Museum of old asylum
