You will get on my "topa" boat and you will experience a great Venetian aperitivo with a stunning view of Venice from the outer lagoon and its magic islands :) As soon as we start cruising, I'll start serving you drinks and snacks. The experience will last about 1 hour and a half and you will get to see its most iconic views (San Marco, Giudecca, Lido di Venezia and much more). At the end of this experience I will drop you off at the same spot where I picked you up. This experience is perfect for anyone: singles, couples, families and groups of friends. Meeting place: Venice (main island). Group size: up to 6 people. You can book directly here or send an email to for enquiries.

      Alessandro e Natalia ci hanno mostrato angoli poco noti e raccontato storie insolite di Venezia e delle isole che la circondano. Davvero una piacevolissima serata. Grazie!

      Il tour in barca con Alessandro è stata davvero un'esperienza unica e speciale: un modo diverso e autentico per conoscere questa splendida città guardandola da un un'altra prospettiva: quella del mare! Alessandro ci ha raccontato molte storie e particolari che una visita turistica standard non ci avrebbe permesso di conoscere e ci ha offerto uno speciale aperitivo al tramonto: assolutamente da rifare!

      This was a great way to understand the history and layout of Venice! We were provided with great snacks and drinks on this intimate boy ride. Alessandro gave us some insights and recommendations we haven’t found elsewhere! I would recommend this boat ride if you want to learn more about Venice and get some fantastic recommendations!

    thumb Alex

      Had a great time with Alessandro. Seeing some different parts of Venice was great, and the great drinks didn't hurt. Highly recommended.

    thumb Evan

      I learnt so much more about Venice with this special experience — Alessandro is an amazing storyteller with a deep knowledge of the Venetian way of life. We toured around the whole region (especially the non-touristy parts) on boat with tales of Venetian history, cultural and politics, and I left feeling a new sense of connection to the local communities. The wine and homemade snacks were a great bonus as well! Will recommend this to anyone visiting Venice!!

    thumb Iris

      The boat tour with Alessandro was amazing! It was the perfect start to our Venice vacation. The directions to meet up were perfect, the snacks were delicious, and Alessandro answered all of our questions. 10/10 would go again!

    thumb Taylor

      Had a lovely time cruising around the Venice lagoon. Alessandro knows so many interesting facts about the sites in Venice and I learned a lot while really enjoying the views from the boat. Great experience and highly recommend!
