  • 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.

  • Known in antiquity as the island of Vigna Murada since the 15th century it has turned into the lazzaretto of the Venetian republic called "novo" to distinguish it from the "old" that was a real hospital. The novo lazzaretto, on the other hand, was a real prevention facility with houses and construction facilities for the quarantine of suspicious goods. In the 1800s it became a military zone and even today you can see the various transformations to make it fortified and the toll booths by dust. A mercurial place that tells years of history, absolutely to visit!
