Overview

Straight out of an adventure novel, the Isola di San Michele is less than five minutes away from Venice but a spot not often visited by tourists. San Michele has also been a former prison island but its main attraction is the cemetery. As per Napoleon's decree, Cimitero di San Michele has been Venice's cemetery since the 19th Century. The layout is well organized and the rows are separated by walking paths. It's interesting to note that famous personalities like Ezra Pound and Igor Stravinsky are also buried here. You can say a silent prayer to those forgotten at the Church of San Michele.
