Unspoiled Lagoon

Board the Bora cruiser in St. Mark’s area (1). Cruise around the south-east part of Venice towards the Island of Certosa (2), an authentic oasis of peace whose peculiar vegetation is a significant environmental heritage. Pass by the cultivated island of Le Vignole (3). Arrive to the typical salt marshes of Sant’Erasmo (4), the vegetable garden of Venice that offers some well-known specialties such as the “carciofo violetto” (violet artichoke). This island is extremely important to the ecology of the lagoon as it encourages water exchange, moderates wave action and hosts a flourishing vegetation. The cruise will continue towards the Northern Lagoon, house to fish farms and the villages of Treporti (5), Lio Piccolo (6), Lio Maggiore (7) and Le Mesole (8).

This whole area is full of beauty and charm, undisputed kingdom of a rich flora and lacustrine
fauna, characterized by the presence of pink flamingos.
