Crews will have the possibility of visiting Venice by dragon boat. The OC will make a calendar available, with dates and times in which your team, guided by one of our helmsmen, can book a dragon boat and travel through the Grand Canal and smaller canals of our city, We suggest that you book well in advance as places will be limited.
VISIT ITALY BY DRAGON BOAT (Initiative 2)
Considering that the World Championships could be a good opportunity to travel, the O.C. offers of appointments and travel arrangements to attend other smaller dragon boat events before and after Venice (26/08 Caldonazzo, 10/09 Florence, 16/09 Cagliari), and to visit the fantastic regions of Trentino Alto-Adige, Veneto, Tuscany and Sardinia. We suggest you to adhere well in advance because the offers will be limited.
