Trieste, Venice and its lagoon: art and maritime tradition

Approaching Venice from a shipping channel is a unique experience: Venice is a pearl but without its lagoon would lose much of its incredible charm.

Set sails from the historic harbours of beautiful sea villages like Chioggia and Caorle to experience the emotion of sailing the main channels of Venice lagoon, gradually spotting San Marco’s bell tower . Continuing on Giudecca channel you will stop in San Giorgio’s island and enjoy the view of San Marco square directly from the boat!

Trieste, another city for tourists and sailors. You will stop in the city centre , just two steps away from Unità square where you can have a coffee with the view of the sea.
We suggest to stroll around the marvelous historic centre and to stop in “Osteria da Marino” restaurant. Here the walls are covered by photographs of sailboats and local sailing champions (you can easily meet them here when they’re not doing a regatta around the world). Speaking of regattas...why not participating in the biggest regatta in the world, the famous Barcolana, that takes place in Trieste every year on the second Sunday of October.

Sailing holidays in Venice and the Gulf of Trieste:

Once back offshore you can sail toward Trieste, discovering renowned locations such as Lignano and Grado where you can taste the “frico”, a typical dish made of cheese, potatoes and butter and one of the many local wines
You like birdwatching? At the mouth of river Isonzo you can do it directly from the boat and then we suggest to sail towards Monfalcone to experience the emotion of sailing under theDuino Castle for a real “Lord of the rings” experience between cliffs and ancient ruins overlooking the sea.

These are the last people to have explored Venice and the Gulf of Trieste.
