Sail to the heart of the Venice lagoon on a sailing boat is an astonishing  Sightseeing Venice experience. You will have the opportunity to visit Venice in a special way, leave St Mark square and the Grand Canal behind, and head out into another world: the venetian lagoon!

The Eastern lagoon is like a nature reserve and has many birds and plants to discover. As you enter the more shallow channels, you will discover the salt marshes, where you can admire the rarest of the birds, which every year come to the lagoon to nest.

It’s a great spot for birdwatchers! More than 100 bird species can be found on the lagoon in the course of the seasons, among them the Red-crested Pochard, Velvet Scoter, Horned and Red-necked Grebes, Red-throated Loon, Pygmy Cormorant, Spotted Redshank, Little Stint, Montagu’s Harrier, Short-eared Owl, Kentish Plover, and Penduline Tit.

Sailing in Venice – what do Venetians do in their free time?

Have you ever wondered what the Venetians do in their own leisure time?
Among their favorite outdoor activities, whether it’s a rowing boat or a motorboat, is always a boat ride in the lagoon of Venice! But not a gondola – this kind of sailing is more how most Venetians travel on the water is a traditional boat. Let yourself be guided by a professional skipper and discover the most interesting parts of the lagoon and even join them for a refreshing swim away from the crowds! 

The triangular ‘terza’ sail was invented in Venice between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as an evolution of the previous square Latin sails. This triangular lug sail is much more manoeuvrable and suitable for flat bottom hulls (just like those needed for navigation in the lagoon!). It is called sail to the third because the cross bar of the sail is inserted into  the mast at a third of its height.
Even today the sails traditionally maintain bright colors as they did in the past. These bright colours were in fact useful for identifying the boats in fog and at night.
These features, still used by modern sailing boats, symbolise the character of the Venice  lagoon. Visit places where Venetians meet at weekends, maybe have a swim, enjoy nature and see species of birds that have lived here since ancient times.
