What to Expect
Set sail on a traditional wooden boat and explore the Venice Lagoon far off the tourist trail. The boats are very comfortable and safe, and can ride over shallow water. The small, quiet outboards engines make the journey even more relaxed.

The 3-hour first tour heads towards the magnificent 13th-century monastry of St. Francesco del Deserto, founded by Francis of Assis. Pass St. Erasmo, the island still known as the "orchard of Venice," where vegetables found in the Rialto market are grown. See the salt marshes to glimpse what Venice looked like before it was built.

Take a sightseeing tour around Burano, and head back to Venice through Mazzorbo and Murano. If you wish you can finish your trip in Murano to visit a glass factory, or stop at the island of San Michele to visit the monumental cemetery.
