Every year, from March to October, from Padua to Venice or the other way round, boats and ferries sail on the way followed by the ancient Venetian Burchiello in the 1700’s.
Through these cruises you can see even the most hidden sides of this territory rich in art, history and culture that probably from the road you would not be able to notice.
This charming mini-cruise passes nine swivelling bridges and five locks, true “water lifts” that enable tourists to go down or up the difference in water level that is as high as 10 meters from Padua to Venice.
The programs offer navigation from Padua to Venice (Padua, Stra, Dolo, Mira, Oriago, Malcontenta, Fusina, Venice) or from Venice to Padua (Venice, Fusina, Malcontenta, Oriago, Mira, Dolo, Stra, Padua), and the tour to the Villa Foscari La Malcontenta, Mira Villa Widmann and Villa Pisani in Stra.
The mini cruises can be individual or group, Half Day Cruise or, the most recommended, the Full Day Cruise which, in addition to navigation on the river, offer guided visits to the the villas and lunch on request in one of the local restaurants along the Riviera.
