"One always takes
for granted that Venice
is the ideal city for
a honeymoon, but
this is a serious error.
Living in Venice, or simply visiting it, means to fall in love with it, and there is no space left in the heart for anything else".

boat, to see Venice from a different
perspective: the lagoon and its
secret canals and inlets.
Your personal chef will introduce you to local culinary specialties, while the crew accompanies you to the best local spots for a refreshing swim or a meditative walk.
"The black, sleek gondola, and the way in which it moves, light, without any sound, retains a strange character,
a dream-like beauty, and is an integral part of the city of idleness, love and music.
In no other city like Venice have I found such a unity between contemporary life and the life which speaks to us of the works of art of its golden age, and in which sun and sea are more essential than all of history".

(San Venanzio Fortunato)
