Half Day Trip in Traditional Venetian Sail Boat | WEEKENDinITALY
Leave the busy streets of Venice behind and explore the lagoon sailing al terzo – with the traditional Venetian sail. Aboard the Bragozzo you'll have a chance to see the hidden secrets of this unique landscape in a relaxed way. Enjoy a welcome drink, learn about the history of the lagoon, see ancient islands, watch for rare birds – don't miss this opportunity to encounter aspects of Venice not many get to live...
The great city of Venice with its ancient seafaring traditions was born out of this lagoon. The Venetian lagoon is one of the world's unique environments, the largest wetland in the Mediterranean basin – and visiting it by boat will open its world to you in an entirely original way. Sail past the many islands, see small fishing villages, and enjoy the charming landscapes, all the while respecting the environment in total relaxation.
The Bragozzo is a boat that has sailed the merchant routes in the northern Adriatic sea for centuries and is part of the history of Venice. Thanks to the flat bottom, these boats can sail on shallow water and navigate through landscapes that cannot be discovered with common boats. The Bragozzo is 8.5 meter (25ft) long and 2 meter (7 ft) large, and can comfortably accommodate up to 10 passengers.
The sailing route is not predefined – you create it while sailing! Upon request, an expert naturalistic or archaeological guide will accompany your tour.
Once on board you will be offered a welcome drink. For lunch you will have a choice between a picnic on the boat, or one of the traditional restaurants of the Venetian lagoon.
Once a confirmation code has been assigned to your reservation, we can refund the cost minus a service fee (reservation fee and online booking fee) for cancellations up to 1 week before the event. Cancellations less than one week before your booked event and no-shows are not refundable.
