Private Tour to the Islands of San Servolo and San Lazzaro degli Armeni from Padua
If you've been to Venice before and have already visited the most famous sites or want to get away from the crowds, this is the tour for you.
You will meet your guide in St Mark's Square and take the vaporetto to the island of San Servolo, one of Venice's most complex and challenging restoration projects. The island features a vast architectural complex and beautiful park and has been a monastic seat for a millennium.
After another vaporetto transfer you will reach the Island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni, a small island completely occupied by a monastery, the mother house of the Mekhitarist order. The island is one of the first centres of Armenian culture in the world. An oasis of peace, it holds many secrets and treasures. A Mekhitarist father will guide you from the characteristic Armenian church to the small museum with memories of Lord Byron.Itinerary

San Sèrvolo is an island in the Venetian lagoon. It is one of the islands closest to the historic centre of Venice. San Servolo is one of the oldest monastic settlements in the lagoon. From 1715 the island was used as a military hospital and in 1725 the first mentally ill person was admitted there. In 1797 Napoleon's government ordered that the insane of all classes be admitted to San Servolo, which thus became a lay-run asylum and military hospital.
