Boat excursions from Padua to Venice


Valid from 18/03/2017 to 05/11/2017


Padua, 30 kilometres away from Venice, has always been a great water city. Today, along the historical route of the ancient Venetian Burchiello of the 18th century, Naviglio del Brenta, you can still get on board on boats in Padua and get to Venice through five locks, enabling the navigation of the 10 metre water slope between Padua and Venice, and nine swing bridges. Other itineraries are available, cruising along Padua’s inner waterways. On board guides will tell about the history, culture and art testified by the monumental aspect of Padua and the Villas of the Brenta Riviera.
