Built following the unique shape of the ancient galleons of the Venice Republic launched between the 16th and 19th centuries, the Venetian galleon now offers an original venue for special events and occasions. Comfort and modern amenities are combined with the history of the vessel to offer guests an experience of great charm, cruising to discover Venice and its beautiful lagoon.

The attention to detail distinguishes the organization of each event, from the creation of the menu to the decorations and the entertainment proposals.

Once on board, you can drink with the crew before sailing to discover the Venetian lagoon: the galleon will sail north along the famous islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello; a highly enthralling panorama will be the backdrop to the dinner prepared by the chef on board the galleon.

Dinner is buffet with standing service. Guests may choose the seat of their choice (non reservable) on the bow or stern.

After dinner the galleon will sail to Venice to allow you to admire St Mark’s Square immersed in the incomparable magic of the Venetian carnival.

La cena sul galeone nei giorni del carnevale è un MUST: ben organizzata, romantica e divertente. Si possono conoscere persone da ogni parte del mondo e la cena che si trasforma in discoteca è super!


Extremely original and funny


Da disabile consiglio di contattare l'organizzazione nel caso di esigenze particolari.
