What you'll do

The first and original Aperitif on the Lagoon.

You will get on my "topa" boat and you will experience a great Venetian aperitivo with a stunning view of Venice from the outer lagoon and its magic islands :)
As soon as we start cruising, I'll start serving you drinks and snacks.
The experience will last about 1 hour and a half and you will get to see its most iconic views (San Marco, Giudecca, Lido di Venezia and much more).
At the end of this experience I will drop you off at the same spot where I picked you up.
This experience is perfect for anyone: singles, couples, families and groups of friends.

The trip with Alessandro was great. Loads of information and hidden gems off the touristic beaten track. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed our tour.

The tour was wonderful, we learned so much that we wouldn’t have known otherwise! Better value than a gondola ride and you really get to know Venice as it is. Alessandro was very knowledgable and had a lot of fun facts about Venice...which you will find out if you complete this tour. Food and drinks were great and local. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Venice. Thank you!!

It was a pleasure to meet Alessandro, he showed us the Venice in a way you can‘t see as a usual tourist. Everything was perfect and his hospitality was great. The prosecco and the tapas were delicious. I totally recommend booking a tour with Alessandro!
