Aspiring sea captains with nerves of steel can take on Venetian water traffic in a rented boat from Brussa . You can hire a 7m boat (including fuel) that can carry up to six people for an hour (€32.50) or a day (€181.50), or make arrangements for longer periods. You don’t need a licence, but you will be taken on a test run to see if you can manoeuvre and park; be sure to ask them to point out the four boat-petrol stations around Venice on a map. If you’d rather enjoy cocktails on board and leave the sailing to the experts, look into lagoon tours.
