AVEMARIA print this page

The barge

We did it: the most comfortable river cruise vessel built in Italy to date! The Ave Maria boasts innovative solutions in its construction and carefully chosen materials and shapes to create an inviting, unpretentious environment. At the same time, the ship also offers sophisticated, modern amenities. The new, strict safety and eco-friendly regulations have been followed down to the details. The Ave Maria is a "floating hotel" that denotes uniqueness and exclusivity.


This is a privileged place where you can enjoy an extraordinary experience basking in the reflections of the light and landscape in the water. While sailing or moored at the docks, the large upper deck is perfect for relaxing outdoors in the sun or in the shade.
On summer evenings, the deck becomes a beautiful terrace restaurant with elegant wood furnishings, perfect for candlelight dinners. 


Main deck

The bright and spacious cabins have two large portholes (one is openable), comfortable modular beds, WiFi connection and en-suite facilities.
The charming and sunny restaurant has large, picture windows. Here we serve an extensive breakfast buffet and dinners that tempt the palate with Italian regional cuisine; simple, yet refined cooking, using fresh, local produce delivered daily and accompanied by a selection of Italian Doc wines.
The salon is a place where you can relax at any time during the day. The barge has a variety of table games, books and tourist brochures, a 55‚ÄĚ multimedia screen and WiFi connection.
There is also a complimentary coffee corner where passengers can serve themselves coffee, caffeinated tea and herbal teas free of charge.
