The galleon is an elegant old-fashioned ship that exudes luxury and charm. It\'s maximum capacity for guests is just 35 so you can be sure of an intimate atmosphere and top quality service.
At the time of booking you\'ll be able to select where you want to sit choosing from the central deck which is more open and has panoramic views, the bow which has a more intimate atmosphere but lacks the view due to only two small portholes, or the poop deck which has small windows. There is an open deck where you can stand to get photos. All tables seat 4 people and during busy periods couples may have to share one of the large tables for 4.
Your Experience With Venetian Lagoon Tour and Galleon Dinner
Board the beautiful galleon dressed to the nines as you embark on a sophisticated 3 hour evening dinner cruise around the lagoon. You\'ll be given a warm welcome by the staff along with a glass of prosecco to get the evening off to a good start as you\'re seated at your candle lit table.
As the boat sails through St Mark\'s Basin giving you stunning views of the piazza you\'ll be able to enjoy your starter. The ship passes some minor island, those of Sant\'Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto before reaching Murano followed by Burano. As you\'re circumnavigating beautiful Burano you\'ll most likely be finished your main course of fish and enjoying dessert.
The slow journey back to Venice, as you sip on after dinner coffee or enjoy another glass of wine, takes you past San Giorgio followed by a short ride up the Grand Canal past St Mark\'s once again so you can grab some more photos of this iconic place before disembarking full of smiles and laughter.
