The Venetian Galleon will be waiting for you docked on the shore of the Venice wharf in front of the Naval Museum (Museo Navale). The crew will welcome you on board and take you to the reserved tables where you will be served a delicious welcome cocktail. Romantic candlelight, elegantly laid tables, careful yet unobtrusive service, and the charm of a boat from times long past complete the overall appeal of an unforgettable dinner in the seductive atmosphere of the Venetian lagoon.


As the last rays of the sun disappear on the horizon, the Galleon will slowly start moving off towards the northern part of the lagoon with its mysterious canals. Reflecting the stars in the sky, the succession of smaller islands appear one by one. You will savor the specialties prepared by our chef whilst sailing past the green islands of Sant’Erasmo, and San Francesco del Deserto.

You will then sail towards the Arsenale, passing the islands of Le Vignole and of Murano, well-known throughout the world for the delicate masterpieces created by its glassmakers. Your voyage through the lagoon by night continues toward Mazzorbo and Burano with its brightly colored houses.

The Galleon will then slowly head back towards Venice and, while sailing the Canal of the Giudecca, you will be welcomed back by a breathtaking view of San Giorgio island, Saint Mark’s basin and of the historical palaces and hotels of the ancient city.


After a last glance at the beauty of Venice by night, we will arrive at the landing point in front of the Museo Navale, hoping to have made your stay in this splendid city even more magical.
