  • Day dedicated to Venice. After the hidden jewel (very hard to find open) of the Church of Santa Croce degli Armeni, visited the island of San Lazzaro. I had high expectations and I was completely satisfied. Thanks also to the passionate illustration of our guide, I was able to appreciate the enormous value of this treasure between San Marco and the Lido. Beautiful architectural structure (see: Church, cloister, refectory and library) but especially important the collections on display. In particular the heritage of ancient texts, with precious tomes and miniatures. The oldest findings to recent history: in the cloister you can visit a photo exhibition that illustrates the dramatic events of the Armenian people in the early twentieth century.

  • After years I managed to visit the island of San Lazzaro. The guides accompany the guests with true passion. The Armenian history and the important figure of mekhitar which is remarkably coagulated tata on this island. In this place can be visited only with guides you perceive the greatness of a people maybe unknown to many. Important library and the quality of works and objects around the monastery. Before reaching the island is good to ensure you can visit the monastery, otherwise you can stop only on the square in front of it. In any case open after 14. Even the ferries are not very frequent and expectations could be lengthy. In any case, it's worth it.

  • Walk through the monastery and inner courtyard, historic paintings and Armenian texts show how monks survived on this island and tried to keep their culture & beliefs alive.

  • This magnificent island hosts an ancient library. You can find it in the tales by Hugo Pratt.
  • If you're Armenian, you need to check this place out. If you're not, you still should, because it is beautiful and absolutely serene. If you want to escape the craziness of Venice for a couple hours, this is your perfect retreat. It was founded by Abate Mechitar in 1701. There are daily tours once a day at 3:25pm, so go check it out!
  • Impressive history of the Armenian presence and contributions to Venice.
  • A place rich in history and culture, something different from the usual tourist Venice, but important to understand the story
