The sun setting, three-hour cruise, a gourmet dinner, the Lagoon islands and a stunning Venetian galleon make this an incredible evening in Venice.
Venetian Galleon Cruise with Dinner
The galleon sets sail from the pier near the Venice Naval Historical Museum, just 15 minutes walking distance from St Mark’s Square.
As the sun sets, the galleon will start out and head to the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, cruising along its canals and passing by its charming small islands. As you enjoy the tour, you will be handed a welcome cocktail and an aperitif.
Dinner will be served in elegant candlelit decorated tables, where you will enjoy a great variety of mouthwatering specialties from the Veneto region, all cooked on board by a professional chef. As you sample a gourmet menu, you will drift past Le Vignole, Sant’Erasmo, San Francesco del Deserto, Torcello, Mazzorbo and Murano islands.
Admiring the beautifully reflected isles of Arsenale, Santa Maria delle Grazie and San Giorgo on the water will be the perfect finishing touch before returning to Venice along the Giudecca canal, admiring its palaces and St Mark’s Square in the background.
When booking you can choose whether you want to enjoy a menu with fish, the specialty of the Venetian Galleon, a menu with meat or a vegetarian menu. All include several starters, first and second courses, dessert, water and, for every two adults, a bottle of Veneto wine. There is also a children's menu for children up to 12 years old.
The best tables are on the main deck, outdoors. These offer the best views and are always private. Tables on the stern and prow are more economical but are inside and don’t offer any views. You may also have to share the table with another couple.
During summer, dinner is served outdoors unless it rains. In colder months (October to May), the boat is covered and heated.
