Row Like A Gondolier


Row like a gondolier - child rowing



Have you ever wondered 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?

Here is your chance to experience something unique and highly entertaining. You’ll know everything about being a gondolier once you have mastered the art of rowing. It’s all in the movement of the wrist, or so they say…

After a quick security briefing, 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 you’ll see that it’s quite a challenge. But once you have gotten the hang of it, it will be time to steer the gondola!

The training takes place in a small port, but when everyone is ready, you will take a trip down the smaller canals of Venice and into the lagoon. On the way, you will visit the gondola museum and squero (gondola reparation atelier) and enjoy a few snacks and refreshments.

For outdoor fun and adventure, there is nothing better than our Row like a Gondolier hands-on workshop!
