Description

Whether you're a goth, hopeless romantic, music lover, poet, philosopher, or simply looking for a peaceful break, you can find the inspiration and peace you're looking for during this trip to San Michele Island. Take a boat ride to reach the island before venturing on a walking tour. Start your tour by hopping on a vaporetto (canal boat) to San Michele Island. Arrive and pay respects to Ezra Pound, Brodsky, and Stravinsky in this silent place in the middle of the lagoon, truly hidden gem. Visit the Renaissance Church of San Michele in Isola and take a walk through the Anglican and Orthodox sections. See the fields reserved for nuns, monks, and people who served the army. Continue to the modern cemetery extension designed by the architect David Chipperfield. San Michele’s cemetery is the place where locals find eternal peace and where silence is interrupted only by the sound of boats, lagoon waves, and seagulls.
