Gourmet Lagoon Tour




Imagine a local Venetian host, known for treasuring the gastronomic heritage of the lagoon, picking you up at your hotel and taking you to the Rialto market where you will discover and cherry-pick the best local ingredients. You will then embark in his beautiful boat, one of the few remaining example of a flat Venetian sailing ship.


You will spend the whole day cruising the lagoon while making various stops along the way to visit tiny private islands, home to delicious gastronomic treasures and have a tasting of ancient Venetian wines made around the lagoon. You will enjoy lunch on board where the talented host will cook for you a fantastic meal by using the freshest ingredients from the lagoon paired of course with a great selection of artisanal wines making you discover a different part of Venice.


The tour will continue by visiting Lazzaretto Nuovo, an island with evidence of humans inhabitants dating back to the Bronze age and renowned for its archaeological discoveries. Here you will see the “Teson Grande” the building used in the 1400’s for the quarantine and decontamination of goods carried from different ports suspected of the plague. Enjoy a glass of Prosecco Col Fondo during sunset and eventually arrive in a wonderful hidden trattoria that serves Venetian classics at their very best!
