Honeymooning couples at Starhotels' Splendid Venice hotel can now skip the gondola ride -- and instead, become the gondoliers! Couples get a one-hour lesson rowing Venice's magnificently romantic and iconic boats. An easy walk from St. Mark's Square and the famous rialot, the hotel is located in the bustling cultural center of magical Venice.
Also included in this unique package is a deluxe room overlooking the canal, complimentary rooftop drinks, a welcome gift, buffet breakfast, and more. There is a two-night minimum per booking, and couples can snag this unique honeymoon in Venice for €430 per night.
As for your lesson learning to row the iconic gondola, your rowing instruction comes courtesy of a partnership with Reale Società Cannottiere, a fixture in the rich Venice gondola culture for well over a century.
Here is travel blogger Jennifer Dombrowski learning to row on the canals! She's doing pretty well...I think maybe she might have found an alternate career path!
