On this full day private boat excursion, you will embark on a gourmet journey that takes you far away from the bustling city of Venice to discover the peace and quiet of its surrounding lagoon, where birdsong replaces the chattering crowds of tourists.
The Eolo is one of the few remaining flat-bottom bragozzi that plied the Venetian lagoon in past centuries. Ideally suited for fishing in the shallow lagoon waters, these wooden boats have brightly colored sails to identify their owner. Mauro is the proud owner of the Eolo and you meet him on the island of Le Vignole, 10-minutes from St. Mark's Square. From there you will cruise around the Island of Sant'Erasmo, the largest island in the Venice lagoon after Venice itself. This green oasis, nicknamed the "Garden of Venice," is dotted with many small farms whose fresh fruits and vegetables are sold daily in the Rialto market.
Using a combination of sails and motor, the Eolo will head to the deserted island of Lazzaretto Nuovo for a visit to the Teson Grande, the warehouse built in the 16th-century for the quarantine and decontamination of goods carried from ports suspected of the plague. Then the boat will anchor near the island for a sumptuous, four-course lunch onboard. Afterwards, sailing slowly through the salt marshes in the lagoon, you will return to the island of Le Vignole for a farewell Prosecco before disembarking.
