    What to Expect
    Embark from Padua at 8am from the historical Burchiello’s Stairway at Portello, which is the ancient river port of the city. Cruise along the same course of the old Venetian burchielli of the 18th century, passing the gorgeous Villa Giovanelli at Noventa Padovana along the way.

    Arrive in Stra at 9:20am with an internal, guided tour of Villa Pisani. After the tour, head towards Dolo and pass through the Dolo Lock. Continue cruising towards Mira with more villas, villages, and swing bridges along the way.

    There will be a stop at Villa Widmann or Villa Barchessa Valmarana for a guided tour. Next, head towards Oriago for a lunch break at the famous restaurant Il Burchiello. Cruising will continue towards Malcontenta, where you will stop at Villa Foscari, called La Malcontenta, for a guided tour.

    At 4:30pm, continue cruising towards Moranzani with sightseeing along the river. Heading towards Venice, you will arrive at San Marco at the landing stage around 5:30pm, where your tour concludes.
