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 were passing and so took a look in, as with so many of the amazingly beautiful churches in Venice they take your breath away.

The Venetian cemetery is worth a trip even if you hadn't planned on leaving the main island grouping of Venice. The church, the famous grave sites and the island itself are all lovely. I would recommend this for a sunny day -not necessarily hot- but...More

The only place in Venice we hadn't visited. Puts us to shame when it comes to our cemeteries. A beautifully kept, peaceful island. All graves have flowers and are well looked after. Soo peaceful. No photos and must be dressed appropriately when visiting. If there...More

If you are not terrified of being in a cemetery, and you are interested in Italian sculptures and gardens - you will like the Venetian cemetery island. I found it very interesting to see the big family tombs, the statues and the beautiful flowers.

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

Yes it is open every day. You can reserve water taxi. I don't know about the tour. I went alone without any guide except guide book.
