Venice Backwaters


Real Venice, insofar as it exists, lies in the backwaters. Your gift to ordinary Venetians is not just to day-dream your way through the backwaters but to drift awhile with the Venetians, and to support sustainable tourism. Whether it’s attending a Baroque recital, browsing for ceramics or trying a traditional rowing course, you are helping Venice survive. Even craft shopping can be a revelation, a secret glimpse of Venetians at their best.
