  • In just a few minutes (about 15-20), to reach the Isola San Lazzaro and immerse yourself in the world of the Armenians and their monastery. A place of silence, of reflection, of art!

  • 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
