Eolo is one of the few remaining ‘bragozzos’, flat bottom sailing fishing boats that once plied the Venetian Lagoon.
While this common sailboat was used as a fishing vessel in the days of the Serenissima Republic, today it is a unique way to see all the beauty of Venice from the water.
Eolo, the God of the Winds according to Greek mythology, is the son of Poseidon and it is his task to control the winds. Eolo directs them across the sea and over land, and always in the right direction.
One of three identical boats, Eolo was built in the Lagoon shipyard of Chioggia in 1946 and used for fishing until 1967 when it was bought by a skilled boat-builder who kept it in mint condition. It was acquired in 1998 by its present owner, Mauro Stoppa, who has restored it to its original beauty.
Mauro Stoppa, owner of Eolo, is the creator of Eolo Cruising Venice and a sophisticated artisan of living and eating well. Mauro believes that holidays should be like an adventure filled with unexpected gifts of nature, turned into delicious dishes.
Elegance and simplicity best describe the way Mauro and his team design every cruise.
“You need to take time and respect the rhythms of the Lagoon, which is timeless”
