'Wonderful tour'

I was very much surprised by the tour on the historical galleon to the San Marco bay for the Festa del Redentore. It’s not possible to get around to see the famous fireworks, but on a ship you can come really close and have a perfect viewing spot from the water. The atmosphere on the ship is just wonderful: music, dancing, big buffet to eat and drink. Time flies very fast! My warm recommendation for everyone in Venice!!!
