Island of Saint Lazarus of the Armenians Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Very close to the Lido, this little island (once a leper camp) was given in the 18th C. to the Armenians, kicked out by the Turks, who founded a convent that was a central point of diffusion of Armenian culture. Unless you want to emulate Byron and swim to the island, you may take the vaporetto there, in which case you will be greeted by the monks, who will take you on a tour of their church, their refectory and the Archives Hall, containing 4 000 manuscripts.
