Ciao! I am Venetian and I am a professional and licensed tour leader of Venice and ISA SUP instructor.

SUP in Venice is a guided tour by Stand Up Paddleboard and also a unique exciting way to see Venice.

Please contact me to book for your SUP tour. We offer a selection of different excursions suitable for different levels from beginners to experienced paddlers.

Do not enter Venice canals by yourself. Police is very strict and the fine for people who are illegal is very high.

I found the experience on the water with SUP in Venice to be the most meaningful of our time in Venice! The walk over to their office was lovely, the instructions clear, and the boards great. We did a 2 hour session, and really did not want the time on the water to end!

This was such a unique experience and so much fun!! Eliana was a great tour guide and extremely patient. Extremely laid back, never got nervous on the canals. SUP on the canals is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a tourist. Would highly recommend this!

What a fantastic day! Can it get ANY better than SUP on the canals of Venice?! Eliana was such a super friendly and sweet, and very knowledgable and safe SUP guide and terrific Venice guide (she's also the owner of SUP in Venice). She grew up there, so knows everything about Venice, and was literally saying hello to friends who... More

Me and my boyfriend went to Venice in February 2017 during the Carnaval (and my Birthday ;)). For me, it was my first time in Venice and I really wished to make a tour with the SUP.

This review is way overdue but since it was such an amazing experience here I am writing about it many months later. To begin with Eliana is a great communicator, she made it very easy to ask questions and plan the excursion. Great directions to the quiet side of Venice with less trafficked canals to paddle board through. Not only... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
