Venice is the water-city “par excellence” and its essence is in the water. From San Giuliano Venice you can undertake unique journeys and savour the magical waters of the Venice lagoon and the Adriatic Sea the true guardians of an unmistakable identity.
Bragozzo boat trips
You can book a trip around the Venice lagoon in a bragozzo boat. The bragozzo is a typical Venetian sailboat whose name comes from the Greek word “bragòs”, which means mud: it is so constructed that it can navigate in shallow and muddy waters. It has been used for centuries as fishing boat, in particular between the 18th and the 19th century, when fishing was widely practiced in the lagoon. The bragozzo boats were used to catch fish always in pairs by sailing next to each other and lowering a trawl net from their poops. The bragozzo has the typical polygonal lug-sails lavishly decorated with bright colours and curious images. Today it represents the historical and social heritage of the Venetian culture.
Sailboat trips between Italy and Croatia
You can take a trip from San Giuliano Venice in a sailboat and discover the Adriatic Sea from the Venetian coast to the rocky coves of the Croatian coast. A long time ago the Adriatic Sea was called the Gulf of Venice – a name that says a great deal about the history of these seas, once entirely dominated by the “Serenissima” Republic of Venice. Today they give us precious testimonies of a thousand-year-old culture hidden among the alleys, churches, works of art and countless villages marked by the Venetian presence. Istria, Dalmatia and the fabulous islands scattered everywhere in the sea will give you the impression of travelling back to the ancient Gulf of Venice.
Ferries to Greece
The Tourist Port of Venice, located just a few kilometres from San Giuliano Venice, is the point of departure and arrival of ferries going to and coming from Greece.
