What You Can Expect

Venice Islands Sunset Cruise with Prosecco and Appetizer

Admire the sunset on a cruise around Venice!

Step aboard your boat near San Zaccaria Church in Venice, and enjoy fine views of the city from the water as you embark on your cruise. Marvel at the ancient waterside buildings and bridges as you glide across St Mark’s Basin, past the island of Giudecca and into the Venetian Lagoon.

Cruise gracefully past the ancient monasteries on San Clemente, San Servolo and San Lazzaro degli Armeni islands, as the sun’s rays cast an orange glow over the Italian brickwork. These small islands sit a little south of the city itself and have been home to monks, pilgrims, crusaders and soldiers for centuries.

While on board, enjoy a traditional Italian appetizer with a glass of prosecco or a soft drink, and soak up the last of the day’s sunshine. Cruise toward the small island of Sant’Andrea, home since the 16th century to a large fortress that was built to defend the city and protect it from attack. Let the crew navigate you expertly along as the sun sits heavy on the horizon, leaving you time to take advantage of the spectacular light to take as many photographs as you like.

Then, continue to the island of Vignole, a pleasant setting enjoyed by both the Romans and Venetians as a vacation destination. Finally, cruise towards its neighbor, Sant’Erasmo, a place once used as a port for the islands in the Venetian Lagoon. Today, Sant’Erasmo is best known for its fresh fruit and vegetables that are grown in abundance. After two hours out on the water, return to the start point where your cruise finishes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This cruise was so much fun! My husband and I arrived in Venice a little later than we expected, so we had to rush to get to this event on time. It was a great relaxed cruise and of course it was beautiful. The other people were so wonderful! They served lots of different snacks to munch on as well as good wines and soft drinks. Before leaving Michigan I read about this cruise. Some people were complaining about the appetizers. Good grief, it's supposed to be appetizers not a full course dinner. We thought we got a lot for our money. We were extremely happy with this beautiful sunset cruise of Venice.
