Explore a hidden area of Venice in a traditional Caorlina rowing boat, an antique lagoon boat used for transportation and fishing. The Caorlina can host 8 people seated and it's rowed by two oarsmen. We will navigate slowly through the canals of the Castello sestiere (east part of the Venice historical island) where locals live. You will see an authentic area & neighborhood where most of the tourists will never go, smaller and bigger canals with local boats and typical houses. We will access to the restricted zone of the Arsenale basin, where you will be introduced to the Venetian rowing technique "Voga alla Veneta" and you will have the opportunity to try to row yourself in this unique area. Get ready to learn the history of the Arsenale shipyard, founded in 1104, during the Venetian Republic era, and see the magnificent St. Peter's basilica designed by Andrea Palladio in the 16th century and its leaning tower bell in Istrian stone. The Experience lasts 1 hour. Departure and arrival place: Sant'Anna canal. This experience benefits Remiera Casteo, a non-profit sports association officially registered since 1977. Thanks for your support!
I am a member of the rowing club Remiera Casteo, in the neighborhood of Castello, where I live. I am passionate of Venice history and traditions, I love sports, so choosing to praticte Venetian tradionional rowing was a natural choice for me. There is much to discover about this ancient rowing technique and the secrets of tradional boat fabrication, doing so, while going through hidden canals, is pure magic.
