Venice's Cemetery on San Michele Island Tour in a small group


A few minutes from the touristy crowds of Saint Mark's square, there's a fascinating hidden gem ready to be discovered. Are you curious to know more about it? Join me on a private tour off the beaten path that takes you to the San Michele island. Hop on a classic 'vaporetto' and take a ride from Fondamente Nuove to the island's cemetery. Whether you're a goth, a hopeless romantic, music lover, poet, philosopher or simply looking for a peaceful break, at San Michele island's cemetery you can find what you're looking for. Visit the Renaissance church of San Michele in Isola, open only til noon. Pay respects to poets and musicians such as Ezra Pound, Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Diaghilev, and Sergei Brodsky. Take a walk through the new cemetery extension designed by the architect David Chipperfield. And the cherry on top, visit the church of Saint Christopher and walk through the fields reserved to nuns, monks and to people who served the army. The San Michele island's cemetery is the place where Venetians find eternal peace and where silence is interrupted only by the sound of boats, lagoon waves, and seagulls.
