Italy

Get ready for an enchanting journey through the amazing site of Venice! Your boat's observation deck is the perfect place to explore the laguna's gems as one of the most popular cruising destination in Europe.

These are nice cruises: 

Nature 

History and Architecture 

Our highlights :

- Venise's laguna  
- Prosecco's wineyards  
- Murano's glass blowers 
- Murano  ,  Burano  and  Torcello's islands 
- Jesolo's beach 
- Pô's Delta natural reserve 
- Italian wine and gastronomy 
- Venice's architectural and cultural gems 
- A relaxing countryside 

The enchanting city of Venice and its surrounding islands are yours to discover and enjoy from the superb vantage position of your own sundeck. For both its breathtaking views and the fantastic cruising experience it offers, it's not easy to see why the Venetian Lagoon is one of our most popular cruising destinations.

Further south, the protected nature reserves of the Po Delta and the nearby colourful fishing villages will delight the nature lovers and bird-watchers among you. Nearby sandy beaches make for a perfect combination of sightseeing and relaxing as you choose to explore the vast expanse of the Venetian lagoon.

Because the waterways of the Venetian Lagoon get very busy, we recommend that only those with some previous boating experience consider Venice as a destination. Cruising in Venice can get very busy and there are always difficulties in finding somewhere to moor – especially as marinas can cost in excess of €100/night.

In the Northern Lagoon (towards Precenicco / Trieste ) there is wider availability of public moorings and marinas for overnight stays, so no mooring supplement is payable for customers cruising between Casale and Precenicco . `

These are some cruise:
