Are you looking for a peaceful break away from the crowds? The monumental cemetery on San Michele island is the place! Join this extraordinary tour and let's hop on a 'vaporetto' to San Michele Island. 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 in Isola and take a walk through the Anglican and Orthodox sections and to the fields reserved to nuns, monks and to people who served the army. And the cherry on top, visit the modern cemetery extension designed by the architect David Chipperfield.
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.

Our tour guide was so accommodating and friendly giving us an 'off the beaten track' experience with a constant smile. He made us feel at ease and gave us a wealth of information. I can't wait to try out his other tours.
