Attraction details
Owner description: A unique vessel, constructed following the design of the ancient galleons launched by the Serenissima Republic between XIV and XVII centuries and used at that time as a freighter and for military purposes. In its modern version, the Galeone Veneziano is an exclusive location for any kind of event thanks to the versatility of its spaces. You will be delighted by the enchantment of the islands of the lagoon, sailing through the canals and discovering unusual glimpses meandering through the Venetian islands.

Booked the Venetian Galleon for a dinner cruise in Venice and it couldnt have been better. The veiws of Venice and the islands around were wonderful and the food was fantastic, a truly great standard.

The boat is great and provides a unique experience along with very friendly staff. Highly recommended to anyone in Venice - A great way to see such a beautiful city

“A fantastic and unique experience”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

I went on the Galleon expecting the experience to be good, but found it exceptional. There were only 17 people on, but the atmosphere was magical. The food was very much catered for Italian tastes, which may not suit all, but there is no doubt about the warm welcome on board. The wine flowed as easy as the beautiful Venitian landscape as we glided along the lagoon, rounding the islands before heading back to Venice and Punta Sabbioni where we bid farewell to the galleon and her crew. Definitely a "must do" when in Venice

“Brilliant evening - great time had by all”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We had exclusive use of the Jolly Roger for 88 people as part of our Company incentive weekend. We all had a brilliant evening. We had a themed masked ball and all the staff joined in. They couldn't be more helpful and friendly. To start with the galleon was laid out to seat 88 people for an outstanding 5 course meal. Once the meal was over a lot of the seating was moved to one side to make a substantial dance floor where we partied the night away. The music hit just the right note with out team. No one wanted to leave. A great way to celebrate and would definitely recommend.
