Pentecost Special Deal

Offer

There is no better way to celebrate Pentecost than a boating holiday, along the Italian waterways in the northeast Adriatic coast. Enjoy the upcoming summer when the climate is absolutely perfect for outdoor activities.

All our itineraries are open, all waterways are navigable. In the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, the major towns of Lignano and Grado are perfect to be visited before the summer mass tourism come. The beaches around Caorle and Jesolo are totally open and full serviced.

Daylight is the longest in the year and sun shines until 9pm. Climate is heavenly warm during the day and fresh in the night. There is no better condition to enjoy living onboard.

In this period of the year there are so many public events everywhere around the region. Traditional costumes and foods animate small and large towns, islands, and waterways; parties are frequent, and it’ll be just up to you to organize your staying at best to miss nothing.

If you book now your holiday in Pentecost, with a minimum duration of 7 nights, you'll benefit of 200€ discount on whatever boat and itinerary.

 

 

Unmissable events:

  • Festa della Sensa – 20th and 21st of May – this anniversary has almost 1000 years of history. It is one of the Venetians' most heartfelt festivals and commemorates their very close relationship with the sea. It will be possible to see the historic boats procession and the "marriage" of the sea
  • Vogalonga – 28th of May – it is a stunning rowing regatta, in which hundreds of boats of all types compete in a non-competitive race. The racepath runs among all the islands of the lagoon north of Venice.
  • Festa del Cristo Re – 3rd and 4th of June – this festival is held on the island of Sant'Erasmo, and includes outdoor activities and a series of competitive regattas with traditional rowing boats
  • Sale, Sole e Mare: Chioggia – 3rd and 4th of June – the ‘little Venice’ (this is how Chioggia is called) prepares the arrival of summer; a large city festival with open-air shows, concerts and stalls.

This is just a short list of events, but many more are present in the region, and you can discover many others by navigating the Italian waterways during the Pentecost period.

 

 

 

This offer is valid only for bookings of minimum 7 nights and can be combined with other offers. The reservation must be confirmed by 05/02/2023. The offer is valid for holidays taking place between 20/05/2023 and 16/06/2023.
