Full description
Don't miss the chance to live a unique and unforgettable experience, framed by the timeless beauty and serenity of the enchanting city of Venice. The Venetian Galleon will wait for you in front of the Museo Storico Navale in Venice and, once on board, the crew will lead you to your reserved table to offer you a delicious welcome drink.

The candlelight, the elegant tables, a fine and well-finished service, and the charm of a boat of other times will be the perfect setting of your wonderful evening out, for an unforgettable dinner immersed in the magic of the Venetian Lagoon. At dusk, the Galleon will slowly leave shore and head into the northern lagoon, with its mysterious canals, while the minor islands such as Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto reveal themselves to you one after another.

During dinner, you will taste a variety of delightful specialties prepared by the chef on board while you sail towards the Venetian Arsenal and then past the islands of Vignole, Mazzorbo and Murano, known worldwide for its glasswork masterpieces. You will then circumnavigate Burano, famous for its picturesque, colorful houses and the Leaning Bell Tower.

Then sail back to the San Marco basin and past the island of San Giorgio, where you can admire the lights reflecting on the water. Afterwards, the Galleon will head on to Venice and the cruise through the Grand Canal will offer you a spectacular view of the San Marco basin and its ancient palaces and prestigious hotels. Once arrived at the landing place in front of the Naval Museum, you will disembark and, with a last glimpse of Venice, the Galleon will sail slowly away.

You can select one of the two following options:
The Central Deck has panoramic windows and during the tour the guests will enjoy a fantastic view of the Venetian Lagoon. The Bow offers a more intimate atmosphere, as there are only two small portholes and there is no view; the Poop Deck has small windows. In both areas, the tables are for 4 persons, and depending on the availability, couples might be seated at one shared table (however, the tables are big enough to guarantee each couple privacy).

Great different evening out!

Loved it! Had central desk table which was perfect. Food excellent and staff all very pleasant and professional. Although seemingly pricey, wine is included and of course you have fantastic views and enough food / courses paced to last nearly the 3 hours. Would definitely recommend. Some people dressed smart/casual and some dressed in standard day wear. Personally it is a special evening out so it makes it a bit more special if a bit of effort is made for the evening but it doesn't matter really either way!

Excellent

Don't hesitate to book this, it is worth every cent. The most amazinly intimate dinner ever. The staff are first class and attentive but also not in your face. The food was very different from any thing we would normally try but that was half the fun of the experience. Extremely enjoyable.
