Description

Are you looking for a peaceful break away from the crowds? San Michele island, the Venice's cemetery is the place. 


Pay respects to Ezra Pound, Brodsky and Stravinsky in this silent place in the middle of the lagoon; a truly hidden gem! 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, 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.
