TRIP DETAILS

In ancient times Padua and Venice were connected by typical river boats called Burchiello®. The wooden boats were characterized by elegant cabins and 3 or 4 balconies, and were moved by the wind or by the oars, before being pulled by horses from Fusina to Padua.

Recreate this journey with a full-day mini cruise from the heart of Padua to Venice San Marco.

Starting from the historic Scalinata Burchiello® al Portello, you will sail along the original route of the 18th century Venetian Burchielli, passing through the splendid Villa Giovanelli in Noventa Padovana.

Relax aboard the luxury boat, with an outdoor deck to enjoy the view.

Disembarkation in Stra for a guided tour of Villa Pisani, the most grandiose villa on the Brenta Riviera. Continue towards Dolo, observing the historical illustrations of the different villas seen from the river.
