Isola San Spirito (the island of the Holy Spirit) shares in the deep richness of Venetian history dating back to the 1500’s. This undeveloped 6 acre island located in the Venetian lagoon, just 10 minutes by water taxi from San Marco Square in Venice, was once home to the widely recognised conquerer, Napoleon Bonaparte.From 1500-1700 San Spirito was utilised by the Italian Government as a military base which is evident from the bunker that remains on the island.
