Venice is a part of the Venetian Lagoon – without the lagoon there would have been no City of Venice and no Republic of Venice.
The Certosa island has a rich history of over a millennium, even if it is far from obvious for the visitors nowadays.
A photo gallery of some of the many photos I have from the island of Poveglia in the Venetian lagoon.
The island of Poveglia is now famous for ghost stories made up by American television. However, there’s a lot more to say about the island than fictitious stories of ghosts and crazy doctors.
