You too can learn to row like a Venetian gondolier. Inspired by the school opposite Grand Hotel dei Dogi whose founder Gloria Rogliani teaches authentic Venetian rowing (‘voga’), your experience starts with a two-hour lesson away from the tourist trails, winding through the city’s canals and to the islands beyond. As you take to the water to learn something of this centuries-old tradition, you’ll catch little-known views and places that have shaped the history of the city. Return to the hotel for a cocktail with a nautical theme in the canalside Voga Bar.
