The guys of Venice On Board welcomed us with sympathy and availability and introduced us, in a very engaging way, to the world of rowing and historic Venetian boats. A bit of history, toyed by a good practice test of classic rowing, tiring but really exciting. To go around the canals of Venice, being able to enjoy an unusual point of view was really fun, and even with the vogue a mutual love was born that I will definitely want to deepen. Visiting Venice slow and cheerfully is really a plus. The guys at Venice On Board have managed to make even those who are not always comfortable in the boat like me. Good, good guys. Nice.
We were looking for something different while we were here and am so pleased we found this on Trip Advisor!! This was a highlight of the trip. It started with a quick tour of their boat restoring work... more »
This is a marvelous treasure. I just so happened to stumble across and I am very happy I did. A true different side of Venice when you are the one actually controlling the boat. You get to see and listen to the culture that is trying to be preserved and I can't say enough about how professional these gentlemen are. Top class - please do this, you will be so happy you did.
What a fantastic experience today, taken around the canals and being taught how to row in a traditional Venetian style. Our instructor was very helpful, patient and knowledgeable about this rowing style. I couldn't fault this experience and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to find out more about the canals, rowing of Venice or the history of both.
