Perfect for everyone
The Ave Maria can dock near historical city centers and natural parks, making it a convenient starting point for all kinds of tours. The cabins are equipped with modular beds, and double rooms can be adapted into triple or quad rooms for families. The restaurant can also cater to special dietary needs, and the interior furnishings are so comfortable and inviting that couch potato passengers will find it hard to set foot on land. Tandem cruising with the “Vita Pugna” is another option; that means that with its 10-cabin capacity we can accommodate a total of more than 60 passengers.
Incentive and team building initiatives, special events
Capacity and quality of services make the Ave Maria a special and unique place for meetings, conventions and corporate incentive activities: the large salon with its 55” multimedia screen is an ideal meeting room.
Associations, groups of friends, gameaholics, aspiring painters, yoga enthusiasts, or sports buffs searching for something new: the Ave Maria is for you! And, if your to-do list isn’t quite as full as you’d like, you’ll always find bicycles and Nordic-walking poles on board for everyone.
Classic week-long variations
From the end of March to the beginning of November you can change the Venice-Mantua route to suit your needs:
- double the overnight stays where you’d like to stay longer and sail past those places you’re not interested in;
- hang out a bit more in the marine towns of Chioggia or Albarella, or in the deep Po Delta;
- choose the moorings nearest to the GOLF courses (see Google map);
- extend your tour all the way to Jesolo on the East or to Cremona on the West;
- sail into the Po river and navigate parallel to the Bianco Canal, moor within a stone’s throw from Ferrara (water levels permitting);
- venture along the Ferrara waterway until you reach Ravenna.
Don’t forget those special events in Venice that are worth the week on tour:
- The Festa del Redentore, the third Saturday in July.
- Mostra del Cinema - The Venice Film Festival, between the end of August and the beginning of September;
- The Vogalonga, in May;
- The Regata Storica, in the beginning of September;
- The Venice Biennale
