Way more than just good spaghetti bolognese.
A few companies offer adventure holidays in Italy that include canoeing and kayaking. One of the best places for canoeing in Italy is the River Tiber. Sea kayaking is also a popular adventure sport in Italy, especially around the island of Sardinia. For a more sedate canoeing experience, you can also try canoeing in Venice, where the waterways are slower moving but you can combine your canoeing trip with sightseeing.
