The Island That No One Dares To Step Foot On


The island that no one dares to step foot on. In this video we take a look at a mysterious island that no one dares to step foot on.

In the Venice Lagoon between Venice and Lido, sits the small island of Poveglia. Inhabited since 421, when mainlanders fled to seek refuge from the invaders, Poveglia’s population began to dwindle centuries later, and by the 14th century the island was completely abandoned.


In 2016 five people from Colorado were rescued by Italian firefighters after they decided to spend the night on the famous haunted island of Poveglia. They reached the island through a water taxi and decided to stay for the night, but as soon the darkness took over a presence started to haunt them, making them scream for help. A sailboat in the area overheard them and called the Italian authorities that came to their rescue.
