Venice: Venetian Lagoon Tour and Galleon Dinner

1. Venice: Venetian Lagoon Tour and Galleon Dinner

Don't miss the chance to live a unique and unforgettable experience, framed by the timeless beauty and serenity of the enchanting city of Venice. The Venetian Galleon will wait for you in front of the Museo Storico Navale in Venice and, once on board, the crew will lead you to your reserved table to offer you a delicious welcome drink. The candlelight, the elegant tables, a fine and well-finished service, and the charm of a boat of other times will be the perfect setting of your wonderful evening out, for an unforgettable dinner immersed in the magic of the Venetian Lagoon. At dusk, the Galleon will slowly leave shore and head into the northern lagoon, with its mysterious canals, while the minor islands such as Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto reveal themselves to you one after another. During dinner, you will taste a variety of delightful specialties prepared by the chef on board while you sail towards the Venetian Arsenal and then 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. Then sail back to the San Marco basin and past the island of San Giorgio, where you can admire the lights reflecting on the water. Afterwards, the Galleon will head on to Venice and the cruise through the Grand Canal will offer you a spectacular view of the San Marco basin and its ancient palaces and prestigious hotels. Once arrived at the landing place in front of the Naval Museum, you will disembark and, with a last glimpse of Venice, the Galleon will sail slowly away. You can select one of the two following options: The Central Deck has panoramic windows and during the tour the guests will enjoy a fantastic view of the Venetian Lagoon. The Bow offers a more intimate atmosphere, as there are only two small portholes and there is no view; the Poop Deck has small windows. 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).

I decided on the tour, with food and gondola ride. The meeting point was well described and I got the contact details from the tour guide from Florencetown. And then I met Lorenzo. I had him all to myself and it was great. I love tours like this. Lorenzo has an absolutely great knowledge of Venice and history and really took the time to explain everything to me. The three hours passed almost too quickly. He had a bite to eat with me (the food is included). When Lorenzo speaks Italian, you hang on to his lips. I think the language is just beautiful and Lorenzo is a great man. The gondola ride was after the tour. also worked great. Lorenzo even gave me good tips after the tour where I can eat well. I felt very well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars to Lorenzo and Florencetown. November is also a beautiful month for Venice.

Can I post a million pictures? Can I say a million things? This tour was truly fantastic, please don't hesitate to book it. My group consisted of three people other than myself and they were all lovely. Our tour guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable on the area (a well-traveled local) and of course all things Prosecco. The two vineyards were beautiful and both offered food to have alongside the Prosecco tastings. Both the food and Prosecco tastings were incredible. I really can't express enough how lovely everything was. If you want to see some of Veneto's mainland, learn about the local culture behind Prosecco or get day-tipsy while eating beautiful cheese in the mountains of Italy, book this tour.

This tour with my significant other was literally 2 years ago. We still talk about how amazing the instructor, food, wine and history was. This memory was precious. The food/wine quality was incredible and so was the amount they gave us. We were not only extremely full and a bit tipsy. We loved the culture. I really wish I remembered the man's name. He was phenomenal. Made Italy feel like a dream. Thank you!

Carolyn was super nice and had lots of great stories to share. The food we made was delicious and she was even kind enough to print off the recipes and send them over to us after the class! Great experience!

Lot of fun and a nice intro to Venice. A relaxed walking tour that takes you a little off the beaten track.
