Venezia is surrounded by series of first class mooring facilities offering the possibility to visit one of the world's wonders without having to bypass the island surrounding it, some like Burano, Murano and Torcello alive with a flourishing tourist activity, others totally abandoned but not less attracting like San Servolo, Santo Spirito housing the Agostinian Friars Order, San Clemente with its old quarantine station or, finally Poveglia whose monuments patrimony has been reduced to the spire bell tower of San Vitale.

The only recreational boats that can navigate in the inner canals are those owned by residents in the Venice historic centre or lagoon islands or holders of special licenses for water space in the historic centre or the Giudecca and in craft whose tonnage does not exceed 5 tons.
