  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Enjoy a romantic evening during your stay in Venice as you board the Venetian Galleon when the night falls and the city lights illuminate the skyline.

    The elegantly laid tables and candlelight dinner will create a captivating atmosphere as you enjoy waterfront and city views from the boat. The boat will pass through islands of Le Vignole, Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto, Burano, Torcello, Mazzorbo and Murano. The unobtrusive service and the charm of a boat of other times will complete the overall appeal of an unforgettable dinner.

    You have an option to choose from three seating areas – the main deck has panoramic windows which will offer you wonderful view on the lagoon (in summer there will not be a rigid covering structure, so the galleon is open. In case of rain/bad weather, the boat has a covering structure). The prow has two small portholes with no view outside and the stern has small windows and tables in both these areas are laid for 4 so couples reserving only for 2 could be seated with other couples.

    You will savour the specialties prepared by our Chef while you take in the beauty around you.

    The city illuminated under the night sky is a sight to cherish. The views look sublime and beautiful as the boat cruises along the Venetian lagoon.

    Itinerary

    Your Venetian Galleon will be docked on the shore of the Venice wharf in front of Museo Navale, where the crew will be ready to welcome you on board and take you to the reserved tables. You have an option of reserving a table at main deck or at the prow/stern section of the boat. You will be served a pleasant welcome cocktail as you get ready for this unforgettable evening.

    As the city lights illuminate the night sky, the Galleon will slowly start cruising towards the north part of the lagoon which is full of enchanting canals and has a cluster of small islands scattered around the canals.

    While you enjoy the specialties prepared by the chef onboard, your cruise will sail alongside the islands of Le Vignole, Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto, followed by Burano with its distinct colourful houses lined uniformly. Your boat will also cross Torcello, Mazzorbo and Murano, well-known throughout the world for the masterpieces of its glassmakers.

    Sailing alongside the Arsenale, the Galleon will reach the small islands of San Giorgio, in a series of lights reflected in the water, pleasantly immersed in an atmosphere that will be able to enchant you with evocative emotions.

    Before arriving at Museo Navale, the Galleon will pass alongside the Canal of Giudecca, from where you will get breathtaking views of historical palaces and hotels of Saint Mark’s basin.
