Activity Level



this is your chance to experience how the gondoliers of Venice manage to row and steer their gondolas in the small canals of the city, just by paddling on one side...

After a quick security briefing at the Venice Marina, you and your family will board the gondola. This type of gondola is a bit special, and a lot more stable than the black Venetian gondolas though. No one will fall into the water! First, you will learn how to row, and once you have gotten the hang of it, it will be time to steer the gondola!

In no time, you will take a trip down the smaller canals of Venice and into the lagoon. On the way back, you will visit the gondola museum and squero (gondola reparation atelier) and enjoy a few snacks and refreshments.

A hands-on activity that all the members of your family will enjoy!
