This is a museum of bits and pieces - but so worth the visit because it is on the most delightful and little visited tiny island. This is the very original Venice - there before Venice itself, so the remains on view here, though few,...More

After visiting the exceptional Basilica I was underwhelmed by the museum. Sadly, it did not capture my interest and was dull !

Had just enough time to visit during our visit to this lovely island. Stunning museum which you should find time for
