Full description

Enjoy a lunch cruise with a difference aboard a traditional Venetian galleon. Take in the timeless beauty and serenity of the enchanting city of Venice and the islands in the lagoon as you have lunch on a set fish menu (a meat and a vegetarian option is also available).

Once onboard, get taken to your reserved table by the onboard crew, then savor a welcome drink. Slowly leave shore in the galleon and head into the northern lagoon. Soak up the atmosphere of its mysterious canals, and enjoy the views of minor islands like Sant'Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto. During lunch, taste a variety of dishes prepared by the Chef on board as you sail toward the Venetian Arsenal and on past the islands of Vignole, Mazzorbo, and Murano, known worldwide for its glasswork masterpieces. You will then circumnavigate Burano, famous for its picturesque colorful houses and the Leaning Bell Tower.

Next, sail back to the Saint Mark's basin for a spectacular view of Saint Mark's Square with its ancient palaces and prestigious hotels and past the island of San Giorgio. Once you arrive in front of the Museo Navale, disembark the galleon and watch it sail slowly away.

At the time of booking you are asked to choose the position of the table: - on the Central Deck: it has panoramic windows and during the tour you will enjoy a fantastic view of the Venetian Lagoon. - on the Prow/Stern areas (automatically assigned): the prow offers a more intimate atmosphere, as there are only two small portholes at the top and there is no view on the outside; the stern is connected to the kitchen/bar and has small windows for a partial view on the outside. In both areas, the tables are for 4 persons, and depending on the availability, couples might be seated at one shared table (however, the tables are big enough to guarantee each couple privacy).

Includes
  • Venetian Lagoon cruise
  • Set fish menu (alternative menu available, please request upon booking)
  • Aperitivo with 1 glass of Prosecco DOC
  • 1 bottle of white or red wine per 2 people
  • Coffee
  • Spirits

Clarify your seat on board immediately with GetYourGuide! We intended for the bow / stern unfortunate place compared to the central tables. Then we managed to change because I am claustrophobic. Thank god
