Description

Join a walking tour of Venice and follow the traces of the Armenians in Venice. The purpose of this tour is to approach the Armenian culture and historical presence in Venice- The city of Venice witnessed diplomatic, commercial and cultural exchanges with Armenians since the Middle Ages: sure enough the old town is rich in monuments, buildings, churches, palaces, calli, campielli that refer to the Armenian presence in the city. Moreover, with the assignment to the Mechitarists congregation of the island of San Lazzaro (which was called "the Armenians’ island" in 1717), Venice became one of the main centers of the Armenian culture. During the walking tour will will discover three of the most important places of Armenian memory in Venice.

You will first stop at the island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni, where a Mechitarist Father will take you to a really exclusive visit to the Monastery. The cultural and spiritual activity of Armenian monks changed the island's history from the first half of the 18th Century. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to join a suggestive Mass in the Armenian Rite. The museums of this islands offer information about many cultures: about 5,000 precious manuscripts in several languages, about 140,000 ancient and modern volumes, an authentic Egyptian mummy of 2,700 years ago, important paintings and other unique precious furnishings.

You will then head back to Venice. From Piazza San Marco you will reach Santa Croce degli Armeni Church. Here lays the former Armenian district. Visit the Church of Santa Croce degli Armeni, a Venetian Baroque church with its precious altars and impressive paintings. Your last stop will be Palazzo Ca’ Zenobio, in Dorsoduro district. The palace has been hosting the Armenian College Moorat Raphael for 200 years, which has been a high-level international education center. Pay a visit to the piano nobile with its famous Hall of mirrors decorated with 18th century frescoes. Look forwards to a walking tour that allows you discover Venice off the beaten track.
