Description

What is the venetian sandolo boat? It is a boat very similar to the gondola, but with a flat bottom, not asymmetrical. The rower therefore is placed in the middle of the boat, not at the side. It is a solid, spacious and manoeuvrable boat used to give tourists a 'Venetian' experience that is less tied to the stereotypical image of the gondola. It can be considered the 'basic' boat of the Venetian lagoon, as many of the other lagoon boats are derived from this model. In the past they were mainly used for fishing, but today they are also used for leisure, for transporting people or light loads and, in their more powerful versions such as the sandoli pupparini and the mascarete, for regattas. Book this tour to enjoy a very typical venetian experience, less turistic! Listen your gondolier with the anecdotes and curiosities of the city of Venice, admire the venetian palaces and the small canals. Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years. This is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and colour of this unique city built on water, you will be enthralled by what surrounds you.
