Have you ever wondered how the Venetian gondoliers 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.
After a quick safety briefing by your private instructor, board the special learner’s gondola.This type of gondola is a lot more stable than the black Venetian gondolas, so no one gets to fall in the water!
First thing is first: getting familiar with the rowing technique, and although it seems quite easy, you’ll see that it is quite a challenge. And once you have gotten the hang of it, it is time to learn how to steer the gondola!
The training takes place in a small port, and when everyone is ready, you and your family will take a trip down the smaller canals of Venice, just like any real gondolier.
On the way, you will visit a very secret gondola museum and squero (gondola reparation atelier) and enjoy a few snacks and refreshments.
