Participate in an original Carnival Party onboard a Venetian Galleon boat! Masks, music and food for an unforgettable evening!

Venice is famous for its carnival throughout the world. During the time dedicated to the celebrations, which usually lasts about three weeks a year, sumptuous balls and famous events bring the city back in time to that period when Venice reached the height of its splendour and its elegance was the envy of Europe. In addition to the Carnival parties and masked balls in Venetian palaces and historic hotels in the old town, the original proposals on the boat galleon also offers four not-to-be-missed evenings to celebrate the 2017 Venice Carnival in a really original way!

On Thursday 16 and 23 FebruaryFriday 17 and 24 February or Saturday 18 and 25 February you can climb aboard a traditional Venetian galleon and experience the craziest time of the year in the charming atmosphere of a boat from another time.

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.

On board, expect party poppers, confetti, streamers and lots of fun up to the landing, around midnight.
