Additional information:
  • Choose whether to depart from Venice or Punta Sabbioni by selecting the departure time corresponding to the boarding point in the 'Book now' box. You can also request to embark or disembark only at Punta Sabbioni in the 'Tour Preferences’ field.
  • Carefully choose in which area to book your table. The main deck has a panoramic view; stern and bow seating is inside the boat. The view is limited to small windows at the stern, while the bow is the most private area of the boat from where you cannot see the outside, as it has two small portholes at the top. The tables at the bow and at the stern have 4 seats so separate couples could be accommodated at the same table (the tables are large enough to allow each couple to have their own privacy).
  • The menu is mainly based on fish and varies according to the season. If you prefer a meat or vegetarian choice, or you have a food allergy or intolerance, you can specify this in your reservation: the chef will prepare the menu that best suits your needs. The boat is wheelchair accessible.
  • Once your booking is confirmed, download the voucher that will also be sent to you via email. You will need to show it at the meeting point, either printed on paper or on your smartphone.
  • Locate in advance the meeting point to avoid arriving late especially in the event of strikes, demonstrations or bad weather: we cannot guarantee you any refund (in full or in part) if you do not present yourself at the meeting point at the specified time or if you decide to leave the experience before the end. If you need assistance, feel free to contact us at the emergency contacts shown in the reservation voucher.

Full description

Fish will be the main ingredient of this Venice lunch cruise, but you can report any intolerances or allergies at the time of booking: we’ll make sure we prepare a menu suited to your needs which is equally as delicious. A meat menu and a vegetarian menu are also available.



You can choose where you would like this galleon lunch cruise in Venice to start from.

The departure points are the following: shores of the Venice pier, in front of the Naval Museum or from Punta Sabbioni.

The itinerary touches the major islands of the northern lagoon: Le Vignole, Sant'Erasmo, San Francesco del Deserto, Burano, Torcello, Mazzorbo and Murano. On the way back, you’ll admire the Arsenale, the islands of Santa Maria delle Grazie and San Giorgio, entering the Giudecca Canal and going along it up to the enchanting St Mark’s basin. You will disembark at the pre-established point in front of the Naval Museum.


The Galleon of Venice

These boats have the charm of pirate galleons, and indeed they are a faithful reproduction of the typical ships of the Republic of Venice which were used between 1600 and 1800 for military purposes and to transport goods and objects of value. They can host all kinds of events, from boat excursions to business meetings and private parties. They have a catering service, a bar and restaurant, and are perfectly accessible to people with physical impairments.

The tables on the main deck are in open air and offer a panoramic view. The tensostatic cover protects against any rain. You can also choose to stay on the stern and bow inside the boat, where you will have greater intimacy but a more limited view.
