Italy: Novel Venice

About the tour: With Tofino Expeditions new Italy kayaking tours, travelers experience a fresh new perspective on some of the world’s most iconic sights and get to explore hidden places that the vast majority of visitors never get to see.

On each itinerary travelers experience a “best of” list of authentic dining experiences with a focus on regional specialties. A sampling might include local wine in Cinque Terra, freshly baked rosemary focaccia on the Riviera or fresh seafood dishes in the Laguna.
On Tofino’s tour of Venice, adventurers will discover a Venice that tourists never see as they explore both the city and the mysterious islands of the Laguna by kayak for eight days. For a totally unique experience, guests will learn to paddle a gondola at one of the oldest Venetian rowing clubs and be initiated into the private language of gondoliers. Other highlights include historical and cultural explorations--via kayak and on foot--of Venice’s famous islands like Murano, San Michele, Lido, San Spirito, San Clemente, Santa Maria della Grazia, and others as well as three nights spent in the brand new waterfront guest rooms at Compagnia della Vela Venezia, a private yacht club located on the basin of the Grand Canal that boasts spectacular views of Piazza San Marco.
