It is great place to go and visit to avoid turists. Brilliant historical priceless pieces. Just check before visit, becuase we had to wait almost two hours before tour. But it was worth it.There is english, italian and armeni speaking guides!

Hello. That's really easy, just take vaparetto number 20 from San Zaccaria stop, which is just by the Ducal palazzo. Enter San Marco square face the water and head to the left. Have a great day.
