Padua and the Venetian Lagoon

Padua and the Venetian Lagoon

#artcities #foodies

From Padua to Venice along the river Brenta. Padua features beautiful historical buildings, typical osterias and local markets. From the city centre it is possible to reach Venice navigating on the river Brenta, on which sides majestic Venetian Villas rise, and the nearby Euganean Hills, where elegant palaces with lush gardens stand out and where gastronomy treasures are produced. Finally, after getting lost among the charming little alleys of Venice, the visit of the islands of the lagoon will be one of the highlights of the tour, totally immersed into nature and tranquillity. 

Get inspired! This is a standard proposal.
Departure and return dates, duration of the trip, type of accommodation, experiences, transfers, meals and other services: the travel package will be created according to the desires and the needs of the Tour Operator and of the traveler.

The slow and panoramic navigation follows the river Brenta, on which sides many Venetian Villas were built: we visit three of them, including the large Villa Pisani. After getting to the river outlet, the boat crosses the lagoon and gets close to Piazza San Marco: there is no better way to get to Venice!

In the morning, a guide waits for the group to give a short introduction of the city: 2 hours of great art and history.

With the full day ferry boat tickets (the classic vaporetto!), the group can navigate on the lagoon, visit the islands, such as the rural Mazzorbo and the colorful Burano, and enjoy free time in Venice: getting lost among alleys and canals is always a unique experience!
