Boat Tour with Aperitvo and Lunch with Locals, in a Garden-Atelier
If you want to experience the local lifestyle, an aperitive on Narciso, our wooden “topo-boat”, is the real thing. A ride on this beautiful Venetian boat allows you to go straight to the soul of Venice: the surrounding lagoon, the city’s water-lounge.
However, this tour will make you discover something more… After the classic “cicchetti” (local tapas) tasting along with Bellini, Spritz cocktail or other local wine and beverages, our Narciso boat will dock at Nini’s house – a magic hidden garden with a painting atelier.
Ingredients here are local cuisine, paintings, masks, a luxuriant garden, and our special hosts: Nino and Nini. Nini is a well-known Venetian artist, painter, sculptor, photographer and mask-maker, whose work has been also exhibited at Ca’ Rezzonico city museum. Nino is the cook (“il cuoco di casa”), with over 40-year professional experience and solid roots in the local and Mediterranean tradition. Feels like home, but if you want to make compliments at the end of the delicious home-made lunch, don’t forget the only rule: don’t call Nino “chef”, if you don’t want to hurt his feelings ;-). Just tell us your food preferences and a tailored-made menu will be made just for your family and friends. Is there any best place for a lunch break than a Mediterranean private garden?
