It’s now less than two weeks to Valentine’s Day: don’t be caught unprepared!

If you are looking for an original idea, Marinanow invites you to a magical dinner by candlelight aboard an old galleon, in one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world: Venice.

The Venetian Galleon is a real galleon, rebuilt in the shape of the galleons launched by the Serenissima Republic between 1500 and 1800 and used at the time for military purposes and to transport goods and valuables.

It offers an exclusive location for all types of events, thanks to the versatility of its spaces.

You can choose between many different routes during the day, afternoon, evening or night, with the possibility to banquet on board. You will experience a journey through the best known islands or discover the less known locations, rich in history and legends, or travel up a nature trail, to learn about the beauty of this land and its activities.

Embarkation can be made in Treporti (15 minutes from Jesolo to Punta Sabbioni), in Venice and the islands (Riva Schiavoni, Arsenal, rafts, Lido) or in Fusina (10 minutes from Mestre towards Chioggia – Ravenna).

Every route is personalized and modified in accordance with the demands and preferences of the group, the period chosen for navigation, the kind of excursions and the program you wish to follow.


The Valentine’s dinner

The Jolly Roger program for Valentine’s Day is more enchanting than ever.

The Venetian Galleon will be moored on the banks of the landing stage of Venice, in front of the Naval Museum. The crew will welcome and accompany you to the tables where you will receive a welcome cocktail.

The sensuality of the candles, the elegantly prepared tables, attentive but always discreet service and the charm of a craft from another time, will create an unforgettable dinner in the enchanting scenery of the Venetian lagoon.

At the first lights of the evening, the Galleon will gradually move away from the shore and travel to the interior of the north lagoon with its mysterious canals, while the smaller islands of Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto will be pass by one after the other.

You will taste the local specialties expertly prepared by the onboard Chef  in an enchanting atmosphere.

The boat will sail to the Arsenale and then Le Vignole, Murano, famous worldwide for its glass masterpieces, Mazzorbo, and then continue sailing around Burano, unmistakable for the characteristic coloured houses and the crooked bell tower.

Returning to the San Marco basin, you will sail around the island of San Giorgio in a parade of lights reflecting in the water, immersed in an atmosphere of seductive rich emotions.

The Galleon will then head to Venice along the Giudecca canal, with the striking San Marco basin and its ancient buildings and prestigious hotels. Once reaching the landing in front of the Naval Museum you will have a last look at Venice from the boat, and we will say farewell trusting that we made your stay in this beautiful city even more magical.


We are waiting for you aboard!
