Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

San Lazzaro is a very special site - my favorite tourist spot in Venice. It is beautiful with a rich history. We have visited twice and enjoyed the fascinating tour. It is a nice break from the tourist-dense spots of San Marco, Rialto, etc. The gift shop featured many wonderful (and reasonably priced) items. Highly recommend!

an amasing place where to understand what culture means, a very interesting visit that drives you to the heart of the Armenian history and its links with Venice with the support of very helpful and engaging guides

We were curious about this Monastery. We took Vaporetto # 20 which is the only one to the Isle of St Lazarus. The Isle was donated to the Catholic Armenian monk who was interested in expanding the knowledge of the Armenian people & for the world to be educated about this minority within a minority.
The Monastery is open to visitors There is an English speaking guide tour at 3:30 PM every day. There are only 11 people living there at present.
We were shown an amazing library with thousand on hand written manuscripts in many languages as well as a books in translation to the Armenian language of many subjects; biology, physics, literature. Some are extremely old & researches often come to the Monastery to review them..Most books have been printed in site
Lord Byron visited several times.
I found it a fascinating story & place.

My husband and I heard a lot about this small Armenian Island in Italy and while in Venice we made sure to visit it. We had a nice guided tour and visited the Armenian church, library and museum, heard the history of the island and how it survived during the war. This was an unbelievable experience!

I decided to visit here because I not only had heard of on a documentary but but because of my own Armenian heritage. My father also attended the Mekhitarian school in Cairo Egypt so I also went in to honor him. The history is amazing and the place holds so many ancient manuscripts it is just mind blowing. I loved every minute!

The island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni is a small island just off the Lido di Venezia, a short vaporetto ride from the Riva degli Schiavone in Venice. The island is home to the beautiful Monastero Armeno Mechitarista, which was founded by Mekhitarists monks, an Armenian Catholic congregation, in 1717. I’ve always wanted to visit this island since learning it had opened its doors to the public in the late 1990s. I was not disappointed. Still a working monastery, it houses one of the largest and most valuable collection Armenian manuscripts, an Armenian and Oriental museum, a significant art collection, library, church and gardens. It is astounding. This is a serene oasis of beauty and discovery shines like a gem in the otherwise over-crowded and over-commercialised city of Venice.

Serene and nice outing for a tour of a very historically rich sight.
Nice to get out of busy Venice. Venice is very nice, but getting out and still being part of Venice was a nice treat. You take vaporetto line 20 that leaves at 3:10pm out of San Marco/San Zaccaria. If you take line 20 any other time to San Lazzaro you just sit and wait until the tour at 3:25. The tour was good. We had quite a few people in a 3 language tours, Italian , English and Armenian. Not sure if everyday is as popular. The tour ends in time to catch the last bus at 5:25pm. Happy we went.
