Fascinating river itineraries in the heart of the Nature Reserve...

Fascinating river itineraries in the heart of the Nature Reserve "Mincio's Valleys", very interesting to be explored by boat, because wild, untouched and unspoiled.

A unique opportunity to sail through reeds, water lily spread in the myriad of channels and waterways crossing the wide expanse of water; admire the rarest birds and follow the sunset from the water, with the far away outline of the town of Mantua, among the lotus flowers. Natural and unusual landscapes for people that prefer a more discreet and authentic tourism to the crowded beaches, surrounded by an uncontaminated nature, that introduces itself different at any season, with charm and atmosphere, proudly shown by the local boatsmen and their knowledge.

Excursions from March to November, from the docks of Grazie of Curtatone (behind the Sanctuary) and, on request from Mantua or Rivalta. We offer our services to individual, small and large groups.

We transport up to 100 people with our three boats, and two are a new echo-compatible boats, suitable to transport disabled, and carrying also bicycles.

The main thing to see are the lotus flowers and the birds (even though there are a lot more in winter). Italian lessons are included as no one speaks English or... More

As the Mincio river widens into lakes and wetlands as it approaches and circles Mantova, part of it has become a natural reserve, a lush and quiet place, where different kinds of boat cruises are organised: ordinary visits, but also sunset and moonlight cruises, and "gastronomical" cruises, whose name is a bit of an exaggeration (and the price a bit...

We have booked this attraction by mail when we have planned the trip to the area. The have asked only for a mail confirmation without asking any down payment by Mrs Paola. Upon arrival, I was nicely surprised to realize that they remember us and they kept our places in spite the fact that it was a crowded week-end. The... More
