San Michele

The view of San Michele from Fondamenta Nuove; the final resting place of Ezra Pound, Christian Doppler (as in the Doppler effect), and Igor Stravinsky among many others, the island is a mere stones throw from Cannaregio.

This is one of my favorite vaporetto stops; from here we hop rides to Torcello, Burano, and of course Murano.
