Would you like to visit the Venice Lagoon, but don't know which island to start from? Don't worry, we'll make your experience "serene"!

Rent a typical Venetian boat with a skipper on the island of Giudecca and set off on an adventure with your small crew of up to 6 people.

Choose the duration of your tour, from 1 to 5 hours, and plan your itinerary with the skipper's advice, to enjoy all the beauty of the Venetian lagoon from the sea.

What we will do

Here you will be welcomed by the skipper who will accompany you on this exclusive tour and you will be able to plan the itinerary with him, to make the most of the time available(from 1 to 5 hours, to be chosen at the time of booking).

You will be seated on board theboat: a traditional topa, a flat-bottomed boat typical of the Venice Lagoon, 6 m long and equipped with an awning, cushions and sundeck for maximum comfort. The boat is ideal for a couple, a family or a group of friends of up to 6 people.

Theisland of Giudecca will be your starting point for exploring the most enchanting places in the Venice Lagoon with a panoramic cruise. From the southern lagoon with the islands of Pellestrina and San Pietro to the northern lagoon, where you can admire the colourful Murano and Burano by sea, or breathe in the authentic atmosphere of the smaller islands: Certosa, Vignola, Sant'Andrea and Sant'Erasmo.

Whichever route you choose, the lagoon will captivate you with its array of colours, stories and traditions. If you wish, you can bring along the equipment for a boat picnic to make the trip even more enjoyable.

The tour will end with a return to Giudecca 1 to 5 hours later, depending on the duration chosen at the time of booking.
