Boat trips

Venice, beautiful, simply amazing and not only! Even its lagoon has a lot to offer, not only from a naturalistic point of view, but also historical and cultural.
Silent and ancient places, sometimes uninhabited, forgotten abbeys and luxuriant vegetation that stretch for hundreds of kilometers.
Discover it on board a private boat that will take you from our bed-and-breakfast to places with unique charm and not always accessible.
