Venice’s islands tour: the beauty and secrets of the Venetian lagoon
Venice is a city that was built on water. The laguna is a place of outstanding natural beauty, often underexplored by visitors. In these private water tours, we want to open up the treasures to be found beyond Venice’s main island and show you the unique features of the other islands of the lagoon.
This Venice islands tour will be tailored to your desires. You can choose to visit artisans at work, historical fortresses or just soak up the natural beauty. Or, you can just leave it to us, and we will show you our favorite, local spots! We will ensure that you have plenty of time to absorb your surroundings. You can choose the mode of transport – either public or private boats, depending on your taste of mixing with the locals and the tourists or the prestige of ‘just you’. Some of these lagoon islands are close to Venice, like the Lazzareto Vecchio and the Armenian Monastery, while others are more distant and require at least three to six hours in order to be fully explored. Get in touch for more suggestions. Tours of this nature last between two and six hours.
Let us help you immerse yourself in how Venice was formed and better understand the incredible landscape and its relationship with the vast, surrounding laguna.
