For those who love peace and quiet, there is nothing better than visiting Venice in January, February and March

Why not choose these winter months for a trip to the lagoon and the historic villages of the islands?

Campi and calli are quieter and there are no queues at the main attractions (apart from the Carnival period, from 8 to 25 February 2020).


Here are some ideas for a one day tour or a three-day weekend trip:


-Malamocco, an ancient village at the southern end of the Lido island, is a little Venice, but off the beaten track. Here you can stroll through the campielli and calli and visit the museum of the Palazzo del Podestà (by appointment, contact 347.4144035 or 041.2760506) which houses a permanent archaeological exhibition, and the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, dating back to the XII century. In Malamocco there is still the studio of the artist Hugo Pratt, where many of the stories of his Corto Maltese, one of the best known characters of Italian and international comics, have been conceived and created.


-Even the villages of the island of Pellestrina still retain their traditions, including the bobbin lace and the typical bussolà, crispy bread rings. You should visit the characteristic village of San Pietro in Volta, among the oldest settlements of this area of the lagoon, and the village of Pellestrina, with colorful houses.


-From March onwards, you can take an excursion to the lagoon aboard a fishing boat to see up close how fishing is done in the lagoon, and taste freshly caught fish, cooked according to the recipes of the best Venetian tradition.


-March is also the best time to observe the many species of waterbirds that spend their winter in the natural areas of the lagoon, such as the Ca’ Roman Reserve on the island of Pellestrina and the Oasis of the Alberoni Dunes at the Lido. Here you can find the most typical natural environments of the Venetian coasts: sandy beaches, dunes and pine forests. It is in these beaches that the Fratino still nests, a protected species of small wading bird, which has become a symbol of biodiversity.
