Story

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons in Veneto, with many unmissable events and nature to discover!

Autumn in the Veneto is a kaleidoscope of colours and emotions, an ever-changing landscape that invites you to discover its true essence. And what better way to do this than on board a comfortable houseboat? Here are six unmissable experiences to experience autumn in a unique and unforgettable way.

Venice Lido Beach Trail: Running with sunrise in the background

Imagine waking up with the first rays of sunlight filtering through the window of your houseboat. The air is fresh, the silence is broken only by the sounds of nature waking up. And you are ready. Ready for the 'Venice Lido Beach Trail', a race, a sporting event but also an experience of total immersion in the beauty of the Lido. It is a harmonious encounter with nature, a way of experiencing the sea even during the autumn season.
On 24 September, leave the comfort of your houseboat and head to the Venice Lido to take part in the Venice Lido Beach Trail. This event is an unmissable occasion for sports and nature enthusiasts. Check out the official website for all the information and get ready for a unique outdoor experience.

The Historical Regatta: A plunge into the past

On the first Sunday in September, Venice dresses up in festivity. Canals and basins fill with traditional boats and people in period costumes for the Regata Storica, one of the lagoon city's most spectacular and fascinating events. It is no longer the city of the 21st century, but a living fresco of its glorious maritime history thanks to this unique event, a true spectacle combining sport, history and tradition. Watching this event up close will be like travelling back in time, losing yourself in the colours of the sails, the costumes of the rowers, the contagious enthusiasm of the public, and feeling part of Venetian history.

Film Festival: Lights, Camera, Action!

We talked about it here and we can't help but include it among the six things to do in Venice this autumn, because if there's one event that epitomises glamour and art, it's the Venice Film Festival. You will have the chance to immerse yourself in world premieres, meetings with directors and actors, and even participate in debates. All this without giving up the relaxation and comfort of your houseboat.

Frecce Tricolori: an aerial dance

On 2 September, the skies of Venice become a canvas for the flying brushes of the Frecce Tricolori. The engines roar and the hearts quicken. The aerobatics are a perfectly synchronised dance and every turn, every loop is a hymn to excellence and precision. For a moment, everything stops and you are there, looking up, completely enraptured by a spectacle that is always fascinating!

Food and wine: A feast for the senses

You cannot talk about the Veneto without talking about Veneto cuisine! In our Veneto food and wine guide we have suggested many specialities and autumn is the perfect time to discover the flavours of the Veneto region. Imagine a picnic on board with a glass of Valpolicella or Amarone in your hand, a board of local cheeses and cold cuts on the table, and the inevitable cicchetti. What more could one wish for?

The Autumn Palette: A Sensory Experience

But perhaps the most intense experience is simply watching the metamorphosis of nature. The leaves turn from green to red to gold in an endless cycle of rebirth. Every sunrise is a unique masterpiece, every sunset a bittersweet farewell. And all this you experience from your privileged corner, aboard your houseboat, far from the world but close to what really matters. In this way, your houseboat holiday becomes a multi-sensory journey, an album of memories and sensations that will stay with you forever.

Autumn in the Veneto is an open book, a tale in the making where each chapter is an experience, an emotion, a detail that enriches the plot of your life. On board a houseboat, you have the opportunity to write these pages in the first person, becoming both the protagonist and the narrator of your story.

And when, at the end of the trip, you find yourself looking back on these days, you will realise that more than just a trip, what you experienced is a memorable chapter in your personal epic. An autumn on a houseboat in the Veneto is more than a holiday; it is a journey within yourself, a continuous discovery that will leave you with a legacy of unforgettable memories and sensations.
