Full description

Treat yourself to a unique spritz on sunset in Venice: on board a double-decker boat you will admire the splendor of St Mark’s Square, Venice, at sunset time. An unmissable panoramic tour in St Mark’s Bay that will let you see the city from a new perspective and under a completely different light, whilst sipping a spritz in Venezia and feeling totally relaxed!

The meeting point is set in Riva degli Schiavoni at pier 2/3, located in front of Palazzo Cornoldi, where a helpful staff will welcome you and check your vouchers.

Ready? Let’s go! Once on board the panoramic boat, you will start the excursion in Venice on sunset, a unique experience that will make you fall in love even more with this beautiful city!

Sailing the lagoon of Venice, you will see the city under a different light and when the sun begins to set, the outlines of the city, the gardens, palaces and islands that you will see on the horizon, will appear completely different. And do not forget that on board, during the excursion, you will enjoy a glass of Prosecco with chip or pretzels.

Are you wondering what you will see during our Venice sunset tour? Here’s the answer:

  • Immediately after starting the navigation, you will admire famous ST MARK’S SQUARE with its Bell Tower, the Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. It is precisely thanks to its splendid monuments and the beauty of its spaces that this square is also known as ' Europe’s living room'. On board the boat you will also admire PUNTA DELLA DOGANA and the dome of Basilica della Madonna della Salute soaring over it. 
  • After leaving St Mark’s Bay behind you, you will travel past the ISLAND OF SAN GIORGIO MAGGIORE, characterized by its grandiose monumental complex designed by Palladio. Continuing the navigation and enjoying the evening horizon as the sun sets and feeling fully relaxed, you will then see the ISLAND OF SAN SERVOLO in the distance with its ancient Benedictine convent, once the location of Venice mental asylum, today a world’s famous cultural center. 
  • The cruise will continue along VENICE LIDO, famous for its beaches but above all for hosting the famous Film Festival every year and, navigating the channel that divides the small VIGNOLE green island from Certosa Island, you will reach MURANO, known all over the world for the traditional art of glassblowing. 
  • In the last part of the spritz tour in Venice at sunset, you will coast SANT'ELENA ISLAND with its large pine grove and the BIENNALE Public Gardens and arrive at the point of disembarkation (the same as the departure). 


A relaxing tour in the calm waters of the lagoon with aperitif on board and fabulous views made even more evocative by the colors of the sunset in Venice lagoon – which you will not resist capturing with your camera... Go and book now! We are waiting for you!
