This was an amazing experience. You walk away from the centre of Venice and it already feels more ‘real’. Arriving at the workshop you feel linked to Venice’s past. Our guide explained the different types of Venetian boats (over 30 of them) before we set...More

The perfect way to see Venice, and feel that by supporting Venice on Board we are in a very small way supporting Venice for venetians. A wooden boat lovingly restored is indeed a beautiful thing and you can see the love they put into restoring...More

Recently went sailing on a very cool wooden boat with Allesandro and Nicolo out into the lagoon around Venice. Sailed all around and visited an old fort and stopped at another island for lunch. Don't spend all your time on the streets and canals in...More

I had an amazing time on this trip. Definitely worth doing! At first it was a little hard to find the workshop where the trip starts, so allow yourself an extra 10 minutes to get there (ask the locals if stuck) - and it's worth...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

It's 80 euro for 1 hour and 30 min. Much better then just take a trip with gondola for 30 min.
