About this trip

  

Forget for a moment all you know about Venice and get on the boat with us!

In a 8-day tour, you will discover a new way to see, touch, row, taste, meet and exchange. In a nutshell, you will be part of the amazing adventure that is Venice. A city of genius, of labour, an amazing example of how man can interact with the environment to build his home

Do you know why the city was built here? Where the materials to build the magnificent palazzi, churches and all the buildings came from? Do you know about the trade that created an innovative cuisine? The endeavors to get water and food? How do Venetians manage to maintain a lifestyle still today linked to their relationship with nature? 

Join us in this trip, and you will understand all this and much more (plus, much fun is included- with our compliments).

Tips

Please note that part of the journey and experience are outdoor activities. 

Embarking and disembarking can be a little uncomfortable sometimes. 

There are little walks on unpaved paths. You must be trained to comfortably walk for at least 1 hour.

My roots are in Venice and its region; I grew up between Venice and Padua, where I graduated in Political Sciences. My job as a journalist brought me to Belgium and France. After Brussels and Paris, I live now with my family between Venice, Rome and Bordeaux (here I spent the latest 3 years running a first class B&B). I’ve always been an enthusiastic traveller, definitely more of a city person than a country one; I like the mess of cities where I always looki for ways of establishing a contact with the busy people around me. Smiling is my secret weapon (or so everyone says!) Of course, I need to be in nature to regenerate. I especially appreciate walking, trekking and biking and I am a member of local associations for the protection of the environment. My goal in life: Meeting people, discovering places, sharing experiences; in other words, opening your heart and mind to see beyond appearances. That’s what I hope to share with you!
