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.

      Once in a lifetime opportunity to see Venice off the beaten path, from the water. We are so glad we chose this tour with Alesandro! We felt immediately a part of the city, and we liked not being on a busy tour boat. This experience was made even better with Alesandro's masterful storytelling and local knowledge. And the prosecco and appetizers he provided were absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for sharing time and stories with us!

      Alessandro ci ha fatto fare un interessante tour nella laguna, raccontando tanti annedoti legati ai luoghi che vedevamo.
    È stata anche una bella occasione per conoscere altre persone.
    Durante il tour si è creato un clima amichevole e Alessandro è stato molto gentile a consigliarci alcuni ristoranti tipici. Esperienza consigliata!

      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!

      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!

      He was great! Was able to see things around the island that I wouldn’t of seen if it weren’t for this experience!

    thumb Alexa

      Bellissima esperienza... Da provare!! A differenza del classico giro in gondola rimane più interessante e completo.. Alessandro é stato molto gentile e diaponibile. Lo consiglio vivamente... Inoltre la comunicazione con lui è stata molto fluida e chiara.. E ci siamo messi d'accordo facilmente! Bellissima esperienza...

    thumb Rossana

      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!
