This three-day itinerary discovers the typical scenery of the Venice lagoon. Once away from the traditional circuits among the most famous islands, you are plunged into the most typical places of lagoon life.
Thursday: embarkation at 18.00 in Venice and overnight on the boat.
Friday: sail towards the south across the lagoon, around the coast of Poveglia, stopping at San Pietro in Volta and Pellestrina. You reach Chioggia in the evening for dinner in a typical restaurant.
Saturday: visit to Chioggia then towards the north and back into the lagoon through the Lido inlet. Night at anchor near Burano or in the Treporti marina.
Sunday: sail among the salt marshes, stopping to visit the islands of Burano and Torcello. Back to Venice at 16.00.
This itinerary immerses you immediately in the heart of the lagoon. After sailing from Venice and around the coasts of islands such as San Servolo, San Clemente and Poveglia, you pass among old abandoned Austrian powder magazines and the fishermen's villages of San Pietro in Volta and Pellestrina. You can see the peociere, the traditional mussel farms, and casoni, the typical fishermen's huts on piles which rise up from the shallows.
In the evening you reach an elegant new marina at Chioggia where you can dine in one of the numerous restaurants offering fresh fish and traditional local dishes.
Taking advantage of the morning breeze, leave Chioggia and, while the fishing boats are coming back from their night's fishing, head out to sea to sail towards the north, to Venice. Re-entering the lagoon through the Lido inlet, you can find safe moorings near Treporti, to then go on to Burano where you can moor and go ashore for sunset among the brightly coloured fishermen's houses on the island.
The following day, a walk among the alleyways of Burano is a must, then after a brief trip among the salt marshes, a visit to the historic beauties of Torcello.
Made richer by the treasures of the lagoon, its landscapes, nature and history, return through the channels and canals towards Venice.
