The unmatched beauty and magic that have made Venice famous throughout the world make this city the ideal destination for a romantic getaway. Here are our best offers in the lagoon:

  • A gondola ride, the traditional Venetian boat, is one of the most romantic experiences in the city on the water. We would like to suggest various versions, which can also be suitable for those looking for low cost options.
    • Gondola Ride and Serenade Gondola - the former is a classic gondola ride that lasts about 30 minutes; the latter also provides musical accompaniment – these are two collective tours, which means you will not have the gondola at your complete disposal but you'll have to share it with other participants. You cannot count on a romantic experience for couples, but these two tours are the best solution for a low cost Valentine’s day in Venice without renouncing the beauty of a gondola ride!
    • Tête-à-tête in Venice: Gondola Ride & Dinner by candlelight: a private gondola ride and dinner in one of the most popular restaurants in Venice. An unforgettable evening, to be enjoyed with a very special person!
    • Private gondola tour: a picturesque private gondola ride to enjoy the magic of Venice along its small and beautiful canals! The highlight of this tour is that, at the time of booking, you only have to choose the date: you are free to fix the departure time within the time intervals indicated on the voucher. 
  • Cruise & Dinner on the Galleon: Valentine's Day in Venice on the galleon? A traditional Venetian galleon to discover Venice and its lagoon in the evening, admiring the reflections on the water and the wonderful views. Valentine’s Day event 2018 is scheduled for Wednesday 14th: an evening dedicated to lovers, with a delicious menu created specifically for the occasion!
  • Sunset tour - Venice sunset boat: an unusual itinerary to admire the colours and shades of the sunset over the Venice lagoon aboard a traditional Venetian boat ( called bragozzo or sampierotta). Departure times vary depending on the period, since they are naturally regulated to the sunset calendar!
  • Itineraries with a private guide, to approach the city from a completely original and personalized perspective! Among the many private tours in Venice, for a romantic weekend, we recommend:

  • Private lesson of Venetian rowing and a short bacaro tour: if you are looking for a truly original activity for your Valentine day in 2018, this is the thing for you! Guided by a rowing instructor, you will experience this ancient and fascinating discipline and try your hand at navigating a boat through the picturesque canals of the Cannaregio district ... At the end of the lesson, you will head on your boat to two typical Venetian taverns for a glass of wine and some nibbles, known as cicchetti in Venice.


Leaving Venice, the city of Romeo and Juliet offers the best for Valentine’s Day romantic ideas: thanks to Verona in Love, a great classic of the city of Verona for the past several years, events, illuminations and decorations all combined will alight the entire city in a majestic hymn of love.
