A wonderful experience to live the city, alone on foot or by public boats, as the Venetians do, among the beautiful squares, narrow streets, canals and islands of the lagoon with our guided tours. All in safety covid free.

Discover the Ghetto of Venice and its millenary history, find the Arsenale and get to know its splendor when they built one ship a day. Along the routes stop in the typical taverns to drink a glass of wine and taste a "cicchetto" of fish.

Experience the atmosphere of St. Mark's Square among stories and legends like those of the millenary struggle and collaboration with the Arabs: the East and Byzantium. Step by step reach the Rialto Bridge and discover the famous Fish Market.

Stop under the bridge to taste the cod croutons with a glass of wine, where merchants from all over the world used to trade the goods that arrived on the galleys from distant lands.

Slowly aboard the vaporetto, let yourself be fascinated by the Grand Canal and discover its centuries-old history with the legends of its 200 Palaces, while the gondolas parade pass by.

Sail across the uncontaminated lagoon to discover the Venetian islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello! Lose yourself in the colorful streets of Burano, the island of fishermen, discover how glass has been blowing in Murano for thousands of years, revealing the magic of the ancient Torcello, the green island, where the "first" Venice was born.
