Getting there..

The No. 20 vaporetto leaves San Zaccaria, near the Piazza San Marco, for the islands of San Servolo and San Lazzaro (15 mins journey). Times of boats are as follows:
S.ZACCARIA M.V.E. boats at 9.20am 10.30am 11.50am 1.10pm 2.30pm 3.10pm
The pier path leads straight ahead to the monastery

Now according to my research guided tours of the monastery were 3-5pm - and gates are shut until then, so we dutifully caught the2..30pm boat for the 3pm tour. We were hoping Ma and Pa Kettle could join us for this trip but that was not to be unfortunately. Alas when you arrive the big notice board states tours begin at 3.30pm - so I'd say take the 3.10pm boat. Tours last about an hour and a half...so for the boats back to Venice:
S.LAZZARO: 10.45am 12.05pm 1.25pm 2.45pm 3.25 pm 4.45pm 5.25pm 6.45 pm 8.05pm
Although running late the 4.45pnm boat waited for the people on the tour to catch this service.
There really is not much else to see - part of the walk arounfd this tiny island were fenced off too so catch the first boat back after the tour.
