Navigate the Canals

Navigate the Canals

You can start your Azamara City Stay with a lesson in how to travel around the city like a local. A private class with one of the city’s gondoliers provides a hands-on introduction to the 1,500-year-old profession. You’ll learn the basics of maneuvering the craft and get to know your instructor and his story. Then, you’ll have a chance to steer the craft itself, but don’t worry – your test runs will be on some of the city’s quieter canals, from where you’ll head out to the open waters of the lagoon. You can save navigating the traffic on the Grand Canal for your next trip.
