Venice Lagoon & Mainland

Enrich your Venice experience with our Venice Lagoon & Mainland Tours!

No visit to Venice is complete without a tour to discover Venice Lagoon & Mainland. The Lagoon of Venice is so rich in tradition as well as in wildlife.

Most tourists don’t realize that  Venice is built in the middle of  one of the most ecologically important bodies of water in the Mediterranean, presenting at the same time a unique cultural heritage and one of the richest flora and fauna environment.

To the naturalist, the Venetian lagoon is a remarkably rich wetland environment, classified by the World Wildlife Fund as one of the primary migratory bird refuges in Europe. Up to 40.000 birds winter here. The Lagoon is included in Project MAR, a program of the United Nation that lists wetlands of international importance.

There are many islands to visit in the Venetian Lagoon. The most famous are Murano, Burano and Torcello. Lesser known, yet not less interesting and attractive is the Southern lagoon where you can visit the island of Pellestrina and the medieval fishing village of Chioggia.

A tour through the Lagoon can be organized in different ways. It can be an excursion with a luxury water taxi to visit the islands’ traditional aspects. If you want to enjoy this unique environment in a more relaxed way consider a day cruise to explore the less visited areas and also sail out to the sea. A boat tour at sunset will be an unforgettable and also romantic experience.

A day tour to the Venetian Mainland can also enrich your visit to Venice. By the middle of 1400 Venice expanded her dominium to the territories of the actual Veneto Region, as far as to the city of Brescia and Bergamo. The Venetian Republic started to exploit the agricultural potential of its mainland territories. The aristocracy began to build villas and farmhouses on their country estate. The most outstanding villas were built by the famous architect Andrea Palladio.
