Edipo Re Boat - Venice Lagoon Tour

Edipo Re

Sail to the remote islands of the Venetian Lagoon aboard Edipo Re, the boat that once saw love blossom between Maria Callas and Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Explore rarely-seen parts of the city before returning to the boat for lunch or dinner, cocktails and canapés, or a tasting of exquisite local produce such as cult caparossoli clams. As you savour each flavour, gazing over the serene lagoon, imagine the diva and the director doing just the same.
