Sunset Sailboat Trip

Punta Sabbioni, Veneto, Italy
14 Kudos
On this trip, we decided to use AirBnb’s “experiences” section for the first time. We booked a sunset sailboat cruise leaving from Marina di Lio Grando, near Punta Sabbioni.
We had thought about doing a gondola ride, but the price was so high for just 30 mins, that we Decided we would rather spend that money on a longer trip.
We ended up spending about the same as we would have spent on a 30 minute gondola ride for a 2.5 hour sunset sailboat cruise. It also included beer, Prosecco, soda, and water, as well as bread, anchovies, and delicious shrimp cooked by our host, Ernesto. His friend is a fisherman who caught the shrimp, and it was the freshest tasting shrimp I have ever had!
This was not a private trip, so others could join, and it ended up being us and one other couple. We had a great time getting to know Ernesto as well as the other couple on the trip with us. Can’t argue with a beautiful sunset, delicious food, wine, and good company!
