The experience gives the opportunity to take a tour through the canals of Venice with a typical Venetian Rowing Boat. Furthermore the experience also gives the chance to our guests to learn the rudiments of the Venetian rowing technique so that they can lead the boat for the Venetian canals by themselves. The experience obviously includes references and historical notes of the Venetian rowing tradition, as well as historical-artistic references of Venice. The experience aims at ensuring that those who participate can experience our unique city as a true local with a focus on how traditionally venetian people navigate on Venetian canals.
I have almost twenty years of experience in Rowing, I have been part of World Championships in Canoeing, Dragonboat, as well as national and international Rowing races. In the last decade my love for my city and its tradition has led me to learn and practice Venetian rowing. I am an athlete in the Venetian rowing sector participating in races and selections of the city Regatta Circuits. I believe that anyone who comes to Venice should try to immerse themselves in the tradition of Venetian rowing, which would help them learn more about our beautiful city.
Traditional rowing boat, oars and forks will be supplied.
The experience will be carried out mainly outdoors and specifically on water, both on canals and on the open lagoon. The main area we will visit will be the Cannaregio district, one of the most characteristic districts of Venice.
