  • Arriving on the island during a tour we were greeted by a volunteer who with explanations and a quick video explained the function of the place (they stopped people and goods who may have contracted the plague for 40 days [quarantine], while those who were infected was moved to the Old Lazzaretto). It is worth a visit both for the landscape aspect and for the exhibits present. On the island there is the only real well with the coat of arms of the Winged Lion of all Venice, saved from the destructive fury that arrived with Napoleon. We hope that in the future those who have to allow to enhance this place more.

  • Here the idea and practice of quarantine were conceived: 40 were in fact the days during which crews and goods arriving in Venice were isolated here to prevent the spread of the plague. The place, easily accessible once the visit has been booked, has a certain charm for both historical aspects (museum and various finds) and naturalistic ones. The guide we found was particularly knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in providing clarifications and explanations. Perhaps the place deserves more attention from the municipality also depending on the intense archaeological volunteering that takes place there.

  • Beautiful island with a dark history. The archeological preservation is very impressive.
  • The island can only be visited in summer and on Saturdays and Sundays thanks to a voluntary association (Ekos). The visit consists of the outer tour of the wall (from which you have an enchanting view of the surrounding salt marshes) and the visit of the interior that contains the beautiful large tezon with an interesting small museum. It's really worth it!
