The sun setting, three-hour cruise, a gourmet dinner, the Lagoon islands and a stunning Venetian galleon make this an incredible evening in Venice.
Venetian Galleon Cruise with Dinner
The galleon sets sail from the pier near the Venice Naval Historical Museum, just 15 minutes walking distance from St Mark’s Square.
As the sun sets, the galleon will start out and head to the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, cruising along its canals and passing by its charming small islands. As you enjoy the tour, you will be handed a welcome cocktail and an aperitif.
Dinner will be served in elegant candlelit decorated tables, where you will enjoy a great variety of mouthwatering specialties from the Veneto region, all cooked on board by a professional chef. As you sample a gourmet menu, you will drift past Le Vignole, Sant’Erasmo, San Francesco del Deserto, Torcello, Mazzorbo and Murano islands.
Admiring the beautifully reflected isles of Arsenale, Santa Maria delle Grazie and San Giorgo on the water will be the perfect finishing touch before returning to Venice along the Giudecca canal, admiring its palaces and St Mark’s Square in the background.
The best tables are on the main deck, outdoors. These offer the best views and are always private. Tables on the stern and prow are more economical but are inside and don’t offer any views. Moreover, you might have to share the table with another couple.
During summer, dinner is served outdoors unless it rains. In summer, the boat is covered and heated.
The following fish and shellfish menu is the speciality of the house. If you prefer, you can order a meat or vegetarian menu instead. You will be served all the plates on the menu, so you don’t have to choose.
- Aperitif with Prosecco and assorted canapés.
- Raw scampi in lemon dressing with avocado sauce.
- Thin slices of sea bass billet flavoured with capers and olives “taggiasca”.
- Pickled anchovies with pink peppercorns.
- Octopus salad.
- Scallops au gratin with ginger and carrots sauce.
- Prosecco scented risotto with scampi and pumpkin
- Crêpe filled with cep mushrooms
