What an intriguing way to enjoy the mystique of Venice and it’s calm lagoon, as if from the past and far from mass tourism. A unique chance to embark on a privileged journey through one of the greatest historical and cultural regions of Italy, the Venetian Lagoon. Traveling with a specially adapted, traditional boat, we experience the very best gastronomy, and the genuine hospitality of our host, our impassioned captain and galley-master, who provides insight into the area, reflecting its historical and cultural essence. We’ll overnight in a private palace in a quiet corner of the city of Venice. One night on the island of Torcello, we’ll stay in a secluded inn and dine in a Michelin starred restaurant. Enjoy cooking lessons on board which utilize the fresh catch and characteristic vegetables of the lagoon. In Venice, enjoy a private visit to the famous 100 year old Fortuny fabric company to learn about the evolution of this magical artisanal work.
