Private Tour: Churches and Cloisters of Venice

See another side to Venice on a 4-hour private tour of the churches and cloisters around the Venetian Lagoon. With a guide, you’ll scout out places of worship on islands such as San Lazzaro degli Armeni and San Giorgio Maggiore, and hear about the nuns and monks who once lived and prayed there. Transport is by private boat, which seats up to five people.

Start your tour with a pickup from your Venice hotel, and then head toward the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, just across the famous San Marco basin. As you travel by boat, look out for the Palladian façade of the island’s church, which welcomes people to the island. A breathtaking view of Venice awaits from the top of the church’s bell tower.

Cruise toward Venice Lido to discover San Lazzaro degli Armeni, an island that was dedicated to St. Lazarus, the patron saint of lepers. Hear how a community of Armenian monks settled there at the beginning of the 18th century, and transformed the old, decayed church building into a monastery.

Pass the islands of Sant’Andrea and Sant’Erasmo on your way to San Francesco del Deserto, home to an ancient friary. Learn how the friary was founded by St. Francis of Assisi in the 13th century, and how the so-called “miracle of the birds” took place.

After four hours of cruising around the island, your tour finishes with a drop-off at the start point.
