An Authentic Italian "Insider Experience"


Picture this, the sun is shining, the lagoon is blue and you’ve just been invited aboard the shiny, red Bragozzo Ulisse, a traditional Italian fishing vessel.

Soft music plays as you pass beneath romantic marble bridges and explore the colourful port of Chioggia, a world away from the crowds of St Mark’s Square. The proud captain Marco is a local history aficionado, and he tells the story of his floating city with unencumbered zeal, a true Venetian with an infectious lust for life.


Due to its close proximity to the Adriatic, Chioggia is renowned for its seafood, and some of the restaurants are amongst the highest ranked in the entirety of Italy, so if it’s lunch with a view you’re after, you’ve come to the right place.

In addition to the beautiful skyline, seafood and stunning history the Bragozzo Ulisse can take you out to the Ca’ Roman Beach, a secluded and serene paradise, not often visited by tourists.

After a day of exploration, chilled prosecco and canapés will be waiting for you aboard your luxury hotel barge La Bella Vita, where you can while away the evening and watch the sun set over the city’s historic silhouette.
