You will be able to enjoy a cruise through the Northern Lagoon aboard the oldest working boat in Venice, Lady Betty.
A Brief History of Lady Betty
Originally used as an Admiral’s launch, this ship was built in England in 1894 under the reign of Queen Victoria and has become the oldest floating ship in Venice!

Before moving to Venice in 2019, the majestic former steamboat was completely restored by Dennett Boat Builders on the Thames and converted to hybrid propulsion.

This enables you to enjoy the silence of electric propulsion without losing the capability and secureness of a new Perkins Diesel engine as a backup and allowing more power where ever needed.

PierAngelo took great care of us. We went to Murano and Burano. Boat is very stable and fun. Not a high speed trip with plenty of sight seeing and explanation from the captain. Ferry takes you to Certosa. Lady Betty was docked on same pier as where the ferry arrived. We met Capt. PierAngelo at the boat.
Best way to see the entire lagoon surrounding Venice

Has a great tour. Was upgraded to nicer boat since original was not available. Operator was very kind and fun to be with. He allowed us extra time at some stops for shopping and walking. The tour was very fun and would do again.
Die nördliche Lagune abseits der Vaporettolinien zu sehen, ist besonders

Mike unser Kapitän, der Amerikaner der perfekt Deutsch sprach, konnte uns viel Insiderwissen zum Leben in Venedig und zur Lagune geben.
Чудесная прогулка на лодке Lady Betty

Это был уникальный опыт! Мы были в Венеции несколько раз, но впервые увидели ее с другой, еще более очаровательной стороны (да-да, это возможно!), и это незабываемо. Лодка Lady Betty очень элегантная и бесшумная, кататься - одно удовольствие, едешь и наслаждаешься. Мы пообедали на Бурано и искупались в лагуне. На борту были большие полотенца и напитки. Капитан Карл рассказал нам очень много интересного о лагуне и ее островах. Очень хотим и надеемся вернуться в следующем году!
