There are different companies renting boats in Venice: Brussa is Boat Campello Marine Laguniamo (electric boats/motor boats/kayak) You don’t need any driving licence with a motor up to...

Venezia: Teatrino di Parco Villa Groggia
The last time I observed a map of Venice to examine the northern part of Cannaregio, I noticed a tiny park in the surroundings of the church Sant’Alvise. I was curious and searched the park on the internet: actually this park was once part of a larger property (Palazzo Donà, destroyed in 1823) and you...

Bosco di Carpenedo - Mestre: Farfalla
One of the most interesting (and last) parks in Mestre is certainly the Bosco di Carpenedo that you could discover during a bike tour. At the entrance you will be welcomed by volunteers that will provide you with information material and offer you a free guided tour (every hour in Italian). The gathering point is at...

Stra: Villa Pisani
As it can get pretty annoying to pass the whole summer on the beach, we decided to enjoy a walk in the park of one of the most beautiful villas of the Riviera del Brenta. Villa Pisani in Stra belonged to one of the richest families in Venice, the Pisani, who weren’t only successful merchants,...

Venezia Lido: Blue Moon
It’s a beautiful surprise that the month of April this year is marked by springlike temperatures, and what’s better than a walk and an aperitivo on the beach to enjoy the sun? In case you decided to spend only a few days in Venice and the beaches Alberoni and Baccan seem too far away to...

Quarto d'Altino: Panevin falò
The origins of panevin („bread and wine“) lie in the Celtic traditions of the inhabitants of the Veneto region who used a bonfire to evoke the sun, thus longer days (that usually begin with the solstice). In the middle age the panevin lost its heretical origins and was christianized, means the event was postponed from...

I still remember how we all did a “procession” through our neighborhood with our self-made lanterns and sang St Martins songs on the 11th of November when I was in kindergarten … In Venice they foster a similar tradition: The kids “beat St Martin” (battere San Martino) after school on the 11th of November. Don’t...

Venezia - Sant'Erasmo: Baccan
On the week end, when the hot and humid Venetian weather only leaves you the choice to hit the beach, we normally don’t go to Alberoni on the Lido as it’s too far away from our wharf. Fortunately, there is another “un-touristy” (what doesn’t mean unvisited) beach in Venice, the Venetian beach by definition: Baccan...

For Christmas my brothers and I made our mother a “Venetian present”: a mask decorating workshop in Venice. I found two bottege (ateliers) in Venice that looked promising to me and went there to have a look at the masks and to have some more info on the workshops. The first one I visited was...

History The fort Carpenedo, built at the end of the 19th century according to the Tunkler model, is together with it’s twin-forts Gazzera and Tron (built in the same period) and Fort Marghera (built in the beginning of the 19th century by the Austrians) the “Campo Trincerato” (complex of fortifications) of Mestre. The main goal...

Lido - Venezia: Risciò
Spring has finally arrived: is there any better way to discover the city than by bike? Some months ago, the city of Venice installed the first automated bike rental service („Ciclostazioni“) to offer residents and visitors an alternative to the bus/tram. At the Lido you’ll, unfortunately, only find 2 rental points, but in Mestre there...

Ever heard of the Befana before? She’s a Santa Claus like character who, in the night of the 5th of January (after the Panevin festivity), takes her broom and flies from house to house to bring sweets to all the children (who behaved well the months before). Naughty boys/girls too receive a gift: carbon. (You...

I can highly recommend everyone interested in (the Venetian) naval history to visit the Naval History Museum (Museo Storico Navale) located just a few steps away from the Arsenale. You will find: canons, uniforms, Roman/Venetian (for instance the Bucintoro, the vessel of the Doge)/Asiatic model ships and, last but not least, real historic gondole “de...
