What you'll do

On board of my "sanpierotta"( tipically wooden boat of lagoon fishermen) we'll make a trip that, throught the places of the present city, exploring the stories from the past. We'll wander about the lagoon and the city, conversing ( if you want..) for about 2 hours. To see Venice from the water perspective it's essential to understand Venice.

Paolo

I was born in Venice and I listened to its stories since when I was a child, then I studied them on the books. Now I find these stories when I walk through the alleys, inside the labyrinth af the canals, in a small square , flooded with sunlight or on the thights shores swalloved up from the fog...On board with me is my wife ( arrived in Venice from Germany for love, 25 years ago) which share with me the love for this city.
