Row Like a Local - Tuscany
San Miniato, Italy: In the heart of Tuscany, half an hour from Pisa and Florence, one hour from Lucca and Siena. We row on a secluded rowing basin and then enjoy all that our region, and our foodie town, have to offer.

Any, even Learn to Row
Trip Length (Nights)
Kids under 12: 2-for-1!
Come enjoy a week with us at our home club in San Miniato - you'll be part of the family! We'll pick you up in Pisa or Florence and from then on you'll be a much-spoiled member of our local rowing family. Each day you'll row with our youth or masters rowers, heading out with them, swapping helping hands on the dock and practicing your ciao and buongiorno. Post-row cappuccini, a trip to the grocery store - just like the folks who live here! On market days we'll hit the veggie stalls.
Twice during your stay we'll head off into the hills of Tuscany to explore Lucca, or Florence, or go for a hike, and on the other days, we can get you to the train station or suggest local walks or activities. We love to learn about your passions and hobbies (aside from rowing) and tailor our activities around you.
This is one of our most profoundly-loved weeks: rowers who have come in the past have remained close friends with us and our rowers, and have frequently returned. There is just something about "living" the place you are visiting that grows stronger roots.
You'll be in charge of selecting and paying for your lodgings. We'll provide rides to the club, rowing each day (weather and plane schedules permitting!), nice meals, guidance and transportation when we're out exploring.
Please note: This trip has changed since Summer 2023 - we've excluded accommodations and one day of travel in favor of keeping the price the same. If you'd like us to find rooms for you and add an extra day of fun adventures, the price will be quoted when we have a quote from the hotel or B&B.
Pickup and drop-off from the train station or airport in Pisa or Florence, between the hours of 8 am and 9 pm.
