The Vogata del Silenzio


The Vogata del Silenzio (Silent Rowing) is one of the Carnival’s most touching moments other than being the last. The day on which it is held (February 12th) is filled with events that climax with this parade of gondole.

The meeting spot is Riva del Carbon at 23.30, in front of Ca’ Farsetti, right after the concert ends in San Marco Square. The procession will start at midnight and follow through Canal Grande at candlelight in complete silence; when it will reach Porta della Dogana the end of the Carnival will be celebrated.

You are still in time to buy a spot on board of a boat to participate: the prices are high but not prohibitive. They start from 75€ and go up to 350€ for a whole gondola (5 places).

If you do not want to miss this event and many others that are coming up with the arrival of the Carnival, remember to book your stay with Albergo Marin!
