Learning & Fun




That was my first experience as a volunteer and I think "AWESOME" would not be enough to express how great it was.
I have learned so much in every posible way and came out if way richer culturally.
I've meet loads of amazing people; got to know a little bit about many different cultures from each corner of the world.
Sami and Angelica are great people and the three of us would be really collaborative with one another. I can say we were a small happy family for this amazing month I've been there.

Thank you so much for everything and as I told you I am looking to going back.




It has been a long time since I felt so peaceful and grounded in a place. L'imbaracadero is a gem, located in front of the canal, where you can relax and hold amazing conversations or just be thoughtful on your own. The work is easy and divided fairly, plus you have your very own private room. Plenty of time to roam around Venice, subtle nightlife and tranquil vibes!
Sami, the manager, is a lovely lady with such a kind smile! She will make you feel like home from the very first day! I'm very grateful for having this experience! Overall 10/10!




The month I spent at L'Imbarcadero was one of the most beautiful experiences I had last years. All the environment Sami offers you is able to welcome you on a great time in Venice as well. Tasks are really simple and easy - it includes some morning shifts with cleaning (with is pretty easy considering that is not a big place) and afternoon/night sifts - with check ins tasks.
Sami, the manager, is a incredible person always available to help you with your needs! A great manager and a wonderful person im taking to life as a friend!
Thank you Sami for make my stay the best ever I could have!




It was a beautiful experience, the hours of work are not many and the work is quite easy. I met incredible people, 100% recommended




Had a life-changing experience at this place. Sami, the manager, is as incredible as people describe her here. The taks are easy and it gives you a lot of time to explore Venice. Be ready to fell in love with the city and this place! (I really did!)
