Meals Included: Dinner

The original Venice

You have arrived in the tranquility of the lagoon. We hope you had a pleasant journey.

The lagoon of Venice is a special place—this is where it all began and where there are still real people, culinary traditions, and space. We would like to discover this side of Venice with you on a culinary discovery tour far away from mass tourism.

Your tour guide will be happy to take you on a first excursion to the gardens of Venissa at 6.00 pm. These gardens are tended by nine elderly residents of the island of Mazzorbo, and serve to provide for the local inhabitants.

Afterwards, you can get to know your fellow travellers a little better at the welcome dinner and enjoy the tranquility of original Venice.

Relax and enjoy the journey, knowing that our tour guide will assist you at every moment.

Lunch on board with the fishermen

Excursion with lagoon fishermen

Cicchetti Veneziani

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Making bussolà for the fishermen

After a leisurely breakfast, you will meet the experienced fishermen Damiano and Stefano, with whom you will go out into the lagoon. On the way, you will learn about their special catching and breeding methods and learn more about the breeding of the moeche, a special type of crab that can only be found here in Venice's lagoon and is at its best in May and September.

Today's lunch is served directly on board, prepared by Damiano and Stefano's colleagues from the fishermen's cooperative. Enjoy the fresh fish and the relaxed atmosphere with the fishermen up close.

In the afternoon, visit the workshop of a small pastry shop and learn from Carmelina how the tradition of bussolà biscuits came about on Burano. Afterwards, you'll also put on an apron and bake some bussolà for the island's fishermen.

You will end the day in typical Venetian style with ombra and cicchetti (wine and small appetisers) at the fishermen's cooperative.

Relax and enjoy the journey, knowing that our tour guide will assist you at every moment.

Lunch with a view of the Dolomites

Visit to an organic vegetable farmer

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Rose petal jam

Today, you will be taken by water taxi to the island of Sant'Erasmo, known as the "garden of the lagoon" because of its vegetable production. There, you will meet an organic vegetable farmer who will not only show you his fields but also introduce you to the typical and special local artichoke Carciofo violetto di Sant'Erasmo. This delicacy is so special that it has even been recognised as a presidio by Slow Food. Enjoy tastings of the fresh vegetables on site before the water taxi takes you further to Michele. Michele is one of the few wine growers in the lagoon and will surely surprise you with his wines.

For lunch, you will head to the fishermen of Sant'Erasmo Island on Punta Sabbioni, where you will have a breathtaking view of the Dolomites, Venice, and the lagoon.

In the afternoon, you will be picked up again by the water taxi, as a surprise awaits you, both cultural and culinary.

Towards evening, you will be taken back to your accommodation in Burano, where you will have some time to rest before dinner.

Valliculture

Excursion with lagoon fishermen

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Top private collections in Burano

Today, you will visit a valle della pesca, an area separated from the open lagoon by a solid fence, where valliculture, or extensive fish farming, is practised. The name derives from the Latin vallum, meaning dam or shelter.

Afterwards, you will go to a farm on the island of Lio Piccolo, where you can taste many interesting products and also have lunch.

Back on your home island in the afternoon, you will go on an exciting discovery tour of Burano lace, one of the most famous laces in the world, with a centuries-old tradition. There are various theories on the origin of this tradition, the most likely being that it is related to the seafaring of the inhabitants of the small island and the need to repair of nets locally.

In the evening, enjoy once again the wonderful tradition of ombra and cicchetti, a ritual for Venetians to end the day in good company.

FEAST Mazorbetto
FEAST Torcello
SAPIO Barbara Grande cooking class

wild flora in Mazorbetto

Farewell dinner

Cooking course with energy bundle Barbara

Torcello the origin of Venice

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

View from the Torcello Bell Tower

Today, you will go to the neighbouring island of Mazzorbetto, in the middle of the surreal silence of the lagoon, with lush and wild vegetation. Here, some volunteers have set up a fattoria didattica (educational farm) in an effort to protect the original flora of the lagoon and show it to interested guests before it disappears.

Only a few minutes away by boat is the neighbouring island of Torcello. The former "capital" of the northern lagoon, and the heart of the economic and social life of Venetian civilisation, its inhabitants can now be counted on one hand. The contrast between the refined splendour of the Byzantine architecture and the slow and steady progress of nature enhances the feeling of being on a museum island. Take the chance to climb the bell tower of the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta—an ideal vantage point to catch a glimpse of the lagoon landscape in all its complexity.

In Torcello, lunch is served in a typical Venetian taverna before heading back to Burano.

In the afternoon, you will be warmly welcomed by Barbara in her kitchen. This charming hostess will teach you how to prepare traditional Venetian fish dishes, including sarde in saor, risotto al nero di seppia (a seasonal fish dish), and, of course, tiramisu. Together with Barbara, you will prepare the delicious creations and then enjoy them in convivial company during your farewell evening. A truly enjoyable end to your trip, where you will experience the flavours of Venetian cuisine to the fullest.

Venice, Sapio

Meals Included: Breakfast

You have experienced the original Venice this week, yet it is natural to also want to discover the atmosphere and architecture of the city of Venice. We recommend you do this individually with a self-guided tour, as it is less stressful and less complicated than in a group. Or would you like to do something sporty after all that feasting? There are wonderful canoe tours through Venice as well as in the lagoon, which you can book directly with us. Cosy or sporty, we are at your disposal for any suggestions for extensions.

FAQs

Treten Sie als Reisender vor Reisebeginn zurück oder tritt er die Reise nicht an, so verliert Ventura den Anspruch auf den Reisepreis. Stattdessen kann Ventura eine angemessene Entschädigung vom Reisenden verlangen. Dies gilt nicht, sofern der Rücktritt von Ventura zu vertreten ist oder wenn am Bestimmungsort oder in dessen unmittelbarer Nähe unvermeidbare, außergewöhnliche Umstände auftreten, die die Durchführung der Pauschalreise oder die Beförderung von Personen an den Bestimmungsort erheblich beeinträchtigen; Umstände sind unvermeidbar und außergewöhnlich, wenn sie nicht der Kontrolle derjenigen Vertragspartei unterliegen, die sich hierauf beruft, und sich ihre Folgen auch dann nicht hätten vermeiden lassen, wenn alle zumutbaren Vorkehrungen getroffen worden wären.

Ventura hat diesen ihm zustehenden Entschädigungsanspruch in den nachfolgenden Stornopauschalen festgelegt. Die Berechnung erfolgt unter Berücksichtigung des Zeitpunktes des vom Reisenden erklärten Rücktritts bis zum vertraglich vereinbarten Reisebeginn, der zu erwartenden Ersparnis von Aufwendungen und den zu erwartenden Erwerb durch eine anderweitige Verwendung der Reiseleistungen. Die Entschädigung wird nach dem Zeitpunkt des Zugangs der Rücktrittserklärung bei Ventura oder dem Reisemittler wie folgt berechnet:

a) allgemeine Stornopauschale (in Prozent des Reisepreises):

Für Buchungen im Reisetarif CLASSIC: bis 65 Tage vor Reiseantritt 20% ab dem 64. bis 30. Tag vor Reiseantritt 25% ab dem 29. bis 15. Tag vor Reiseantritt 45% ab dem 14. bis 7. Tag vor Reiseantritt 60% ab dem 6. Tag vor Reiseantritt 80% am Tag des Reiseantritts und bei Nichterscheinen 90%

Für Buchungen im Reisetarif FLEXI: bis 65 Tage vor Reiseantritt 0% ab dem 64. bis zum 45. Tag vor Reiseantritt 10% ab dem 44. bis zum 30. Tag vor Reiseantritt 20% ab 29 Tagen vor Abflug sind die Stornogebühren identisch mit denen des Tarifs CLASSIC

b) besondere Stornopauschale:

Sonderangebote/Specials, individuell ausgearbeitete Pauschalreisen sowie Gruppenreisen können besonderen Stornierungsbedingungen unterliegen, auf die in der jeweiligen Leistungsbeschreibung bzw. Reiseausschreibung/Angebot und der Reisebestätigung nach Art. 250 §§ 3, 6 EGBGB ausdrücklich hingewiesen wird.

Ventura behält sich vor, anstelle der vorstehenden Stornopauschalen eine höhere, konkret berechnete Entschädigung zu fordern, soweit Ventura das Entstehen wesentlich höherer Aufwendungen als die jeweils anwendbare Stornopauschale nachweisen kann.
