Are you ready for a very particular experience? You will learn how to row a traditional Venetian boat through the canals of the city!
We will meet at our boats laboratory, set in the area of Cannaregio. We will show you our squero (our gondole laboratory), where we restore and craft gondole. We will introduce you to the world of the Venetian boats, explaining you their characteristics and peculiarity.
After this brief introduction, we will explain you how to row with ancient techniques. We will show you how to use the rows and other tools in order to have a safe and accurate rowing experience :)
If you are a bit scared to fall into the canal, don't worry! We will row along the less busy canals, where you can be more self-confident of yourself!

Hello I am Damiano and I am one of the few "maestri d'ascia" still living in Venice. Have you ever heard of a maestro d'ascia? Well, it is someone who preserves the art of building and crafting gondole.
Some years ago I founded VeniceOnboard, a sportive association that recovers and restores traditional Venetian boats, also teaching the traditional rowing techniques! Together with Emiliano e Nicola, we cultivate this passion, hoping that it will never die.

We had Luca as our host, he was brilliant! A very knowledgeable guy, and so easy-going. The experience was really great! As well as learning how to row, we also learned a lot about the history of Gondoliers in Venice.

Highly recommend! Luka (sp) and his colleagues were terrific. They are raising money to continue and expand their restoration efforts of classic Venetian boats and aspire to open a museum focused on the history of such craft. They explained the basics of Venetian rowing in ways laypeople can understand. Luka then took us both to one of their boats, demonstrated technique and let's us practice ourselves while still docked. We did not demonstrate the innate aptitude to row on our own for this adventure - and that was OK!! Luka took us around the northern canals of Venice for the next hour - it was tremendous fun! Luka was a terrific guide and host, sharing his knowledge of rowing and Venice with a number of personal stories mixed in - he answered all our questions no matter how silly. We each did get an opportunity to stand up and co-row with him for a bit, which we thoroughly enjoyed even though we were fully aware Luka was expertly saving us from crashing and burning with expert skill. Additionally, beyond the restorations and plans for a museum, the bigger goal is introducing visitors to rowing and reintroducing Venetians to their heritage via rowing. We will be rooting for this team!

This experience was fantastic! Venice can be packed with tourists and this made us feel like locals. Our hosts was very passionate and engaging.

Very good, thorough experience, you do really learnt row, the different types of boats historically used, besides the gondola, and other related history. Luca was a welcoming patient guide, and I'm glad to have been guided by him.

Emiliano was our guide/trainer. He was wonderful. He explained the history of the gondola and showed us the workshop. We then went outside and boarded a gondola. He taught us how to properly use the oar to move the gondola and then we each took turns navigating the canals of Venice. It was magical. Definitely a memorable experience.
