    • Spending a Day on...
    This week, Matt and I explored the island of Poveglia, one of the scariest and eeriest abandoned places we've ever been to. With over 160,000 deaths having taken place on the island, half of the island's soil is from human remains...

    To clarify the $700,000, the island was apparently bought by an Italian businessman but he hasn't been permitted to build anything on it yet... Who knows how long it'll stay in this shape

      In 2014 the Italian state auctioned a 99-year lease of Poveglia, which would remain state property, to raise revenue, hoping that the buyer would redevelop the hospital into a luxury hotel.[3] The highest bid was from Italian businessman Luigi Brugnaro Luigi Brugnaro, (€513,000); he planned to invest €20 million euros in a restoration plan.[4] The lease did not proceed because his project was judged not to meet all the conditions.[5][6] Other sources suggested that the deal was annulled because the bid was too low.[7] Brugnaro initially fought the cancellation of the lease, but after became mayor of Venice, he renounced any intentions to the island.[8]

    • Gary Maidman
      Gary Maidman 4 months ago

      @Alex Fusco that's because this wasn't the quarantine island during the main period of the bubonic plague, but was only used as a quarantine island from 1793 to 1814. The island used during the main period of the bubonic plague was a little island between Venice and Murano by the name of San Michele, which serves as a cemetery now.

    The fact that he was so sensitive with a heavy feeling regarding the place just goes to show that he is very spiritual and could feel the pain of each death. Then there is Josh... running around, almost oblivious to what actually happened there. Good video

    I once wandered completely alone within an abandoned compound very similar to this one, but in Croatia. The adrenaline kept driving me on and I eventually reached the top floor and went into the attic. There was such an indescribable feeling up there, and at some point something rustled deep in the shadows. It was probably only a small animal but that was enough to get me the f out of there. Some of the rooms had children’s homework on the desks and old clothes and dolls lying around. It was intense and a lot of fun, but I know the feeling you can get in such a place. Keep in mind I was completely alone, as I randomly discovered it on a jog through the countryside.
    I still have recurring nightmares about that attic. It’s as if something unspeakable happened there long ago and the energy of those traumatic events lingers on.

      @Bera squirrels and foxes can also sound possessed. I remember walking in my yard and it sounded like something yelled at me I look around and there’s a squirrel screaming. Foxes also sound like a woman being murdered. So if you hear in ghost hunting vids what sounds like a woman screaming it’s typically a fox.

    Honestly places like this are really insane but they are part of our history and should be kept as a sort of landmark. They did what they thought was the best solution during the plague to bring all the sick there. I never thought a place like that was still standing, its rather amazing to see it.

  • Rockit666
    Rockit666 11 months ago +4

    The thing that hits me the most is the untold human misery that place has seen over the centuries. You could plant a field of Sage on the whole island, set it on fire and it still wouldn’t get rid of the pain and suffering that is probably embedded down to the bedrock.

    Poveglia was actually used as a marine quarantine island only in two occasions (and both in the late 1700). I don’t know what were your sources for numbers and facts but no mass death there. Also, venetians are not scared of it (young people even have barbecues there sometimes) and there are committees trying to recover it for other uses. It’s more a ghost island in the american imagination than in the local view. Still, really cool place for a ghost story.

    Wonderful to see this as it brought back some exploring memories - maybe not the situation now, but back in 2001, it wasn't that difficult to find someone willing to take you out (for the right price of course) - there were actually a couple of groups passing flyers out by the St. Marks Square Water Taxi stand.

  • BasicFrustration
    BasicFrustration 3 years ago +33

    Hi there, i just wanted to say that you guys fell for a common urban legend, which was basically invented by Fox Family Chanel for the series "The scariest places on earth". There were never hundrets of thousands victims of the plague dying on that island. In fact there was only one or tow ships in the 1790s that were quaranteed here: 8 people died back then, not 160.000. Also there was no mad doctor. In fact there was never a huge psychiatric clinic on there, but a geriatric one. Old people used to be sent out of the dirty and crowded City on an island with fresh grass and better hygiene. There is no record of cruel human-experiments on that island.
    Also the reaction of the taxi-boat-driver (4:38) tells a lot: As someone from Venice i can assert that not many are scared of Poveglia, apart from US-tourists. In fact i remember having picnic with my parents down there when i was a child. That was nice, you have enough space to play. Not like in the crowded city. Also i remember there were a lot of rabbits.
    No hate though - I love your Videos, keep it up!

    • Daniele Semenzato

      Finally, someone said it clear. For us venetians it is absolutely nothing special at all and we still don't understand what the fuss is all about. I'm surprised how some businessman hasn't turned the place into some sort of Horror Disneyland yet , just like what's happened to Venice.

      @ominocapellone not the reign of Italy. That flag is different. This one has the symbols of the 4 major Italian historical port cities. It's used as the navy flag and used by all Italian vessels. The kingdom of Italy flag had the savoy family shield in the middle which does look a little bit like the naval flag but it's not the same.

    Great advice for next time visiting abandoned creepy places; as you do the most, be quiet and respectful. You felt right about being watched from dark; presence of souls was everywhere.
    Those souls of tortured people are trapped and react only being disturbed by loudness.
    They'll show their presence and reactions on loud people are painful body, sickness, headaches, coughing, hard breathing, putting our energy out of balance just as warning to let them being in peace.
    It's possible to "clean" such places with special methods which takes time and focus.
    Great videos guys and see you around. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

    yea, sure… its haunted, but its also extremely beutiful and exquisite. all the trees gives you a really retro, vintage, old vibe. its seems like an amazing place to explore with your best friends just because of its history. its extremely fascintating.

    You guys should do more spooky stuff, or go to more abandoned places :o That would be really cool!

    I went to Venice in high school as an experience with choir. Everyone else went to explore everything else but we went to poveglia. It took us multiple tries to get a boat taxi but the one we found said the same thing we had 2 hours. He dropped us off then we saw him sail away and he just sat in his boat looking through binoculars at us. We explored the asylum entering where the staircase is, the crematorium and burning grounds. Finishing our exploring at the bottom of the tower

    If you guys would ever consider visiting more abandoned places, there is an abandoned children's asylum called Forrest Haven Institution and it's located in the state of Maryland where I live. Small rundown; the institution was shutdown due to the mistreatment of their patients which would lead to their death and like in this video, tests would be performed on the patient many of whom are children and the total numbers of those that were killed are unknown. I've been to this asylum many times before and I would bring different people each time. Most wouldn't dare to come back. I always liked going back as it always seemed like an adventure as there as many buildings that I have yet to discover. I would be more than willing to guide you on the path through the woods to reach the asylum. If ever you would consider it.

Bravo & a BIG hug of peace with much prosperity.

    I've been watching this channel for quite a while now, but strangely I've only now discovered this video.
    i say strangely because I actually live in Venice and have been to Poveglia at least two times as a child for local parties and celebrations on the island. you read right: parties.
    while I'd say the island is kinda abandoned most of the time, I remember going there as a child with my family and playing with my friends way before discovering about the island's reputation (of course the celebrations weren't held on the abandoned buildings, but on the grass surrounding them). there was food, music and the place was overall pretty alive.
    generally, I'd say the part about "no one would be willingly going there more than once" was a bit exaggerated (not meant to be a critic, as I've said I love the channel and have been watching it for a long time). while there are many urban legends regarding the island, the locals generally don't see it negatively at all, and don't often go just because they don't have a reason to (no one can legally build anything on the island, and it's kinda hard to reach).
    to this day, people that call it "the island of death" and are really scared to go to Poveglia are either really old people, or tourists.
