Description

Look forward to a guided tour of the city, during which you will learn more about the historic past of Venice. Since the Middle Ages there has been a close diplomatic, economic and cultural exchange with the Armenians. Learn more about the Armenian culture and see the testimonies of the Armenians that can still be seen in Venice today. An Armenian-Venetian guide will take you to the important places of Armenian Venice and give you an authentic insight into the two cultures

The first destination of your excursion is the small island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni, located in the lagoon of Venice. There is a monastery here, which as the mother house of the so-called Mechitarist order has made the island a world centre of Armenian culture. The cultural and spiritual activity of Armenian monks changed the history of the island from the first half of the 18th century. During your visit you will have the opportunity to take part in an impressive exhibition. In the museums of the island you can view valuable manuscripts from all over the world

Then return to Venice and from Piazza San Marco you will reach the church of Santa Croce degli Armeni. Here is the former Armenian quarter. Visit the church of Santa Croce degli Armeni and explore the valuable altars and impressive paintings of the baroque church. The last station of the tour is the Palazzo Ca 'Zenobio, that is located in the district Dorsoduro. The palace has been home to the Armenian College Moorat Raphael, a high-ranking international educational centre, for around 200 years. Visit the famous Hall of Mirrors, which is decorated with 18th century frescoes. You can look forward to a guided city tour that shows you Venice off the beaten track
