S. Lazzaro

From: Venice Waterbus Stops

San Lazarro is the public waterbus stop for San Lazzaro degli Armeni, a tiny Lagoon island near the Lido that is named after St. Lazarus, the patron saint of lepers.

The island has been a monastery since the early 1700s. Today,  several dozen Armenian monks, seminarians, and students live and work in a monastery that has a 150,000-volume library and more than 4,000 Armenian manuscripts. Tours are available at 3:25 p.m. daily.

The San Lazzaro station is served by:


  • The 3:10 p.m. vaporetto from San Zaccaria will get you to the island in time for the 3:25 p.m. tour. (The boat stops at S. Servolo on the way.) To confirm departure and arrival times, see the current seasonal ACTV timetable.

  • San Lazzaro degli Armeni does not have an ACTV ticket booth or vending machine, so here's what to do if you need to board a water bus without a valid ticket or Tourist Travel Card.
