magic islands

Murano, Burano, Torcello, S. Francesco del Deserto.

  1. More than an island, Murano is actually a group of small connected islands. A magical world with a very long history: the art of glassmaking.
  2. Burano is a picturesque island in the northern Venetian lagoon known for its colorful houses, fishing tradition, ancient lacemaking and leaning bell tower.
  3. On the small island of Torcello there is an atmosphere of tranquility. Far from the buzz of the Venetian streets, here you can enjoy a fascinating visit where history, art and architecture intertwine.
  4. Silence reigns on the island of San Francesco del Deserto, a collected and peaceful calm. A convent of Friars Minor dedicated to prayer and contemplation has been located on this strip of land in the Venetian lagoon since the 13th century.

wild nature

Sant’Andrea, Sant’Erasmo, Lazzareto Nuovo, Lio Piccolo.

  1. The island of Sant’Andrea is a very small island in the Venice lagoon known for the Forte di Sant’Andrea, an important fortress built in the 16th century to defend the city of Venice.
  2. The island of Sant’Erasmo is far from the confusion of nearby Venice and what is striking is its marked agricultural character, celebrated every year on two major occasions: the May festival of the famous violet artichoke (Slow Food Presidium) and the October dedicated to grape must. The island is about four kilometers long and is ideal for a bike ride or a walk.
  3. The island of Lazzareto Nuovo, a Benedictine monastery in the Middle Ages, from 1468 housed a “lazzaretto” called “Novo” to distinguish it from the other near the Lido, the “Vecchio” (which served as a real hospital), becoming a place of quarantine for ships of the Serenissima suspected of plague.
  4. Lio Piccolo is the most panoramic part of the route, surrounded by the stretches of water of the lagoon. On the right we have the Paleazza valley where it is not uncommon to admire, depending on the season, flamingos, herons, cormorants, terns, mallards and egrets.

Bring your bathing suit and sunscreen!
During the summer, swimming is possible during the tour.

la dolce vita

Carnevale, Festa del Redentore, Festa di laurea e altro ancora.

  1. The Venice Carnival is a cultural event that attracts tourists from all over the world. They flock to the streets of the city to take part in this great celebration full of color and fun. The Venice Carnival is certainly the best known for the fascination it exerts and the mystery it continues to possess even now that 900 years have passed since the first document referring to this famous festival.

  2. The Festa del Redentore, also known as “the most famous festival”, is a traditional festival in Venice, with its centerpiece on the island of Giudecca, celebrated on the third Sunday in July each year to commemorate the end of the plague epidemic of 1575-1577.

    The festive atmosphere and the typical food (which changes during the different seasons of the year) attract millions of tourists every year. The number is constantly growing, why not choose to celebrate away from the chaos?

For a true Venetian, every occasion is a good one to celebrate! Bring your own food and drinks! We cannot serve food or drinks on board.
