An ancient monastery, the island of San Servolo, with its 11 conference roomsand adjoining 173 guest rooms’ hospitality facility, is one of Venice’s centres of excellence for conferences, training seminars and cultural events.

The conference rooms, all with natural light and beautiful views of the park or the lagoon, have recently been renovated and can accommodate meetings from 10 to 300 people. The main conference halls (Auditorium and Theatre) include a reception/secretary area and technical assistance.

In addition to the meeting rooms, we also provide charming spaces for catering services: the Palazzina Grecale, with its 300 seats and dehors overlooking the park, is the perfect option for lunches, social dinners, and corporate exhibitions. The elegant Basaglia room, with access to the 18th-century church courtyard and panoramic terrace, is ideal for welcome cocktails and gala dinners for up to 110 people.

The residential and study centre, with its 173 guest rooms of different types and standards, offers the opportunity to fully enjoy the conference experience while staying on the island.

All rooms, located in buildings surrounded by the greenery of the centenary park, are equipped with air conditioning, television, hairdryer, mini-fridge, telephone, and Wi-Fi. The reception service is active day and night.

The rooms are surrounded by a beautiful park with centuries-old trees. The 18th-century cloister and church, together with the belvedere and terraces overlooking the lagoon, make the location even more evocative and unique, combining tradition with efficiency and qualified technical-logistical services.

San Servolo guests can admire an important permanent collection of artworks, including works by Pomodoro, Chia, Plessi, Pino Castagna, Kan Yasuda and Gianni Aricò. In addition, our facilities frequently host temporary exhibitions and side events of the Biennale.

The island hosts the “Museum of the San Servolo Asylum“, which collects the exhibits that belonged to the psychiatric hospital, an institution that characterised the history of San Servolo from the early 18th century until 1978. Guided tours of the museum collections and the adjacent 18th-century pharmacy can be organised upon request.

Whether for a quick snack or the celebration of an anniversary, San Servolo offers various dining options. Our Café is open daily and offers quick lunches, snacks, and aperitifs. For those who wish to take it easier, the San Servolo Restaurant, open at lunch and dinner, offers a seasonal menu in a modern setting suitable for groups.

San Servolo is an oasis of greenery and tranquillity in the heart of the Venetian lagoon: the perfect location to welcome your delegates in a relaxing environment, far from the hustle and bustle of tourism. And when the conference day is over? No worries! St Mark’s Square and the centre of Venice are only eight minutes away by vaporetto!


Base of the Venice International University. It hosts a permanent art exhibit and many cultural events related to contemporary art, the Venice Innovation Design and the Venice International Photo Festival. Worth a visit the Museum of Madness and the old drugstore.


A charming and evocative location suspended between past and present. An island in the Venetian Lagoon with a historic complex dating back to the 7th century and a secular park. Perfectly renovated, elegant and severe decor which reminds of a thousand-year old history.

Charming Position

In front of Venice, with a breathtaking view across the basin of San Marco and the Lagoon. Very close to Venice, but at the same time away from the chaos typical of such popular tourist destinations.


Probably the oldest convention center in Italy. Founded in the 8th century as a Benedictine convent and perfectly renovated a few years ago, it has been converted to different uses and purposes over the centuries: a monastery for several religious orders, a military hospital and then a psychiatric sanatorium.


San Servolo is surrounded by the wonderful natural landscape of the southern Venetian Lagoon. Picturesque park with secular trees. The island offers a suggestive natural setting for nature trails by traditional rowboats.


Venice and its spectacular Lagoon! It just takes 8 minutes by steamboat to get to Piazza San Marco. From here it is very easy to reach the Venice Biennale and visit the most famous amenities of this unique town as well as the picturesque islands of the Venetian Lagoon.


In front of Venice, the unique beauty of the Lagoon, historic buildings and a secular park, a peaceful and cozy atmosphere which still reminds of past centuries. This is really a one-of-a-kind location!
