Slow holidays on water

Water is one of Veneto’s fundamental elements and to get to know and appreciate our wonderful area from a different perspective, you can sail along streams, rivers, lagoons.

There are many opportunities: think about a day in a canoe or kayak, or even in a rubber dinghy, you’re sure to enjoy yourselves! And why not try a unique experience by travelling on a houseboat? When seen from the water, Veneto takes on new perspectives in the way of slow and sustainable holidays.

Therefore, let yourselves be gently rocked by the slow movement of the waves, admire the beauties around you and finally take time to enjoy the culinary excellences of our area.
