Enjoy an excellent dinner, eating by candlelight and served by discreet and professional staff, surrounded by an intimate and refined atmosphere… And celebrate a magic St. Valentine’s Day with your loved one!  

These typical boats recaptures the style of a typical galleon that was used during the Venice Republic between 1600 and 1800 and offers its hosts various types of events, from a simple boat excursion around the Venice lagoon, business meetings or private parties. The boat also has catering facilities, bar and restaurant, including technical equipment which allows for multi-purpose usage and access for people who have mobility impairments.

The pick up point for the tour departure is located in front of Venice Naval Museum; after boarding the crew will accompany you to your reserved table, a choice between the main bridge, stern or bow, and serve you an appetising welcoming cocktail.

The boat excursion starts sailing towards the north of the Venice lagoon: Le Vignole, Sant'Erasmo, San Francesco of the Desert, Burano, Torcello, Mazzorbo and Murano islands can be observed one after the other providing breathtaking scenery to memorise and photograph.

During navigation, you will enjoy the delectable evening dinner on board, based on delicate specialities of the season, complemented by soft background music.

Returning towards Venice we will cruise past the Arsenal and the small island of Santa Maria delle Grazie and San Giorgio, and head towards the Canal della Giudecca and conclude the tour with a spectacular view of St Mark's basin and its prestigious and historic palaces.

Disembarkation is planned at the same landing place in front of the Naval Museum.

Experience an excursion on a unique boat and get to know the real charm of Venice from the sea… What better way could there be to celebrate your Valentine’s Day? A typical Venetian Galleon will transport you into an atmosphere of the past, pampered by a top class service and lulled by the gentle waves!

In the cooler months the galleon has a transparent cover, which provides insulation, and a heating system which guarantees an internal temperature of around 23°C.

Before booking, please consider that the seats on the main bridge guarantee the best view of Venice and its lagoon; seats on the stern and on the bow area are located inside the galleon: on the stern you can admire Venice and its lagoon only from small windows, the bow is the most enclosed area of the boat from which you cannot see outside, since the two small portholes are located in its uppermost part. Moreover, please be advised that the tables on the stern and on the bow area can accomodate 4 people and therefore some couples might be seated on the same table.
