The Battelli del Brenta

Every year, from March to October, we offer very pleasant excursions and mini-cruises by boat, sailing among the Venetian Villas of the Brenta Riviera.

The Battelli del Brenta® are a group of panoramic boats and motorboats that sail along the Brenta Riviera, from Padua towards Venice and vice versa, amidst art and history, along the routes of the antique burchielli of the 18th century.

The Burchiello was a typical Venetian passenger boat, with a large wooden cabin, with three or four balconies, finely worked and decorated. Burchielli were used by the wealthier Venetians to reach their villas in the countryside from the city.

As in the past, still today The Burchiello®, which has become a regular tourist service, sails along the Brenta Riviera from Padua to Venice and vice versa; it is a modern and comfortable boat, equipped with a cabin with comfortable sofas, a panoramic deck that allows passengers maximum visibility, air conditioning, a bar and toilets

.

In addition to the Burchiello, other boats sail along the Riviera del Brenta: some are modern, metal boats, others are traditional wooden boats; heirs to ancient traditions, these modern, comfortable boats slowly ply the waters of the Brenta, while guides on board illustrate the history, culture and art witnessed by the Villas of the Brenta.

The Burchiello is a modern, comfortable boat, which can also be used as a guide.

The navigation is carried out by the group “I Battelli del Brenta” with boats from 50 to 120 passengers.

The boats are equipped with a cabin, a bar area, toilets and a large panoramic deck for maximum visibility.

The navigation programs, planned both for individuals and groups, include navigation from Padua to Venice (Padua, Stra, Dolo, Mira, Oriago, Malcontenta, Fusina, Venice) or from Venice to Padua (Venice, Fusina, Malcontenta, Oriago, Mira, Dolo, Stra, Padua) and the internal guided tour of some Venetian Villas.

The recommended full day excursion includes navigation, guide, stop and internal visit of three Venetian Villas and optional lunch in a restaurant along the Riviera del Brenta, where the boat docks.

Special half-day programmes and short boat trips are also available.

Our organisation is also an accommodation provider, offering hotel reservations, coach hire, excursions and visits to monuments and parks.
