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.

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!
