For years I had been captivated by the idea of a cemetery island. So we decided to spend a number of hours there. We took the vaporetto from F. Nuovo. The island has toilet facilities at the entrance, but no food refreshment. Inside is a...More

So glad we stopped off here. It is very beautiful, serene, unusual. A really lovely island. No photos which of course many people don’t respect. Some said there is nowhere to get a drink but there is are vending machines for drinks and snacks near...More

During my travels I like to visit cemeteries, due to their peacefulness and calmness, often very beautiful sculptures, monuments to historic figures or humble contemplation about life and death. The walled Venetian cemetery on the island of San Michele is very serene and beautiful in...More

San Michele is extraordinarily unique in European cemeteries. It's walled island location keep it quiet, mediative and almost spooky yet beautiful to the right person. Take a Vaparetto and a camera.

We have been to Venice twice before, and on this trip, wanted to see places we had never visited, which is why we took the vaporetto to San Michele Island, the cemetery island of Venice. From the water, it looks beautiful, imposing, somber, historically significant....More

Due to the water tables in Venice, the city had to decide where and how to bury the deceased. The Walled City of San Michele houses the dead and is very large with both shallow graves and mausoleums. Just as in many other cities in...More

We witnessed a funeral going to the cemetery. The coffin in a boat going across and the family stood around it. I love a cemetery but prefer historic graves where I don't feel like I am intruding on families privacy. It is interesting to see...More

I do like to visit a cemetery! Taking the short trip across the lagoon to San Michele is part of the experience. Locals are on 'the bus' with flowers to tend their loved ones graves. The island is beautiful and peaceful and tells its own...More

This island has very calm residents. It is place for dead and memory. Graves, places for urns, memorial chapels, stone and inscriptions, some sculptures, mainly plastic flowers and candles. It can be very surreal, even bizarre. It is not as the other spots in Venice....More

We took ours from the Cannaregio stop as we were staying in that area. I believe the ferry terminates at Murano. We used the ordinary water bus which can't be booked. We also bought a 2 day bus ticket. You could get a water... More
