Very beautiful island and cemetery. A peaceful walk away from the busyness of Venice. Wouldn't recommend for families with children, it is still a functional cemetery so must be quiet and respectful.

They say you can't take it with you but San Michele begs to differ. There are a couple of mausoleums that are like three story houses. They gone to rack and ruin but in a pinch you could hide out there. I've always liked photographing...More

A lovely place to walk around and an easy stop on your way to Murano. So peaceful and beautiful. If you are going to just see the grave of Igor Stravinsky, it is very easy to find as the signage is excellent throughout.

San Michele is still a special island for remembrance, memory, funerals and tombstones. You can find graves of important people there. It is difficult to find vaporetto to this island. Try at Fondamente nuove. Beside the graves you can find interesting church, dedicated, of course,...More

Our travelling companions wanted to see Venice's cemetery on Saint Michael's island in the lagoon between the Fondamente Novo and Murano, so we spent an hour there. It is quiet, unexpectedly pretty in spots, nearly empty, and providing a spectacular view back toward the center...More

Sick of the crowds? In for a more quiet and slightly mysterious experience? Then you may consider walking to the northern part of the main island and take the short trip by Vaporetto to Isola di S. Michele aka Cimitero island. In fact, this huge...More

one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
