Climb on board a traditional fishing boat to experience the magnificent sights of Venice from the water. This voyage lets you see the city like a real Venetian, all in the company of an expert fisherman who teaches you the best techniques to secure a catch.

Start your excursion by departing from the district of Castello into an open lagoon that lies between the islands that make up the city. Listen as your skipper gives you advice on how to use your fishing equipment to increase your chances of securing a catch. As you ride along the tide, keep your eyes peeled for some of the most important structures in Venice, including St. Mark's Campanile and San Pietro di Castello.

Your captain, an experienced Venetian fisherman, teaches you about the wide variety of native fish found in these waters. Once you're ready, cast out your net and try your luck. When you feel something swimming against your grasp, bring it in and admire your catch while immersed in the beautiful scenery.
