The venentian villas

MINI CRUISE

Every year, from March to October, a romantic mini-cruise among the Venetian Villas of the Riviera del Brenta, from Padua to Venice or the other way round, a trip through art and history on the way followed by the ancient Venetian Burchiello in the 1700’s.
The Burchiello was a typical Venetian barge, finely wrought and decorated, used to transport passengers; it was used by the richest classes of Venice to reach their villas in the countryside from the city.
As it used to do in the past, nowadays the Burchiello navigates along the Riviera del Brenta, from Padua to Venice or vice-versa; heir of old traditions, it slowly cruises the Brenta waters while tourist guides on board tell about the history, the culture and the art of the Villas that rise along the Brenta.
The full-day mini-cruise offers the navigation from Padua to Venice (Padua, Stra, Dolo, Mira, Oriago, Malcontenta, Fusina, Venice) or vice-versa, plus the guided tour inside 3 Venetian Villas, the famous richly-frescoed summer dwellings of the Venetian noblemen of the 1700’s, plus a stop for the optional lunch at the famous restaurant Il Burchiello in Oriago, where the barge moors.
