Learn to row like a Venetian-standing, facing forward, just like the gondoliers-in a beautiful, traditional Venetian all-wood gondolina batella coda di gambero. See Venice from a unique, authentic perspective in this unique outing: you can't row Venice if you haven't rowed Venice.

I am not a rower--I've done a small amount many years ago in my youth. However, I was looking for a physical activity while I was in Venice, something to help burn off the pasta and gelato I knew I'd be partaking in. I also...More

We did the 1.5 hour venitian rowing lesson as I figured it was better value than just doing a gondala ride - more than worth it. We had Nan as our guide who was approchable, informative, brilliant and very patient with me. I was impressed...More

Great for all ages. We're Canadians in our 70s, and had a wonderful time. We've been wanting to do this for years - but felt that our canoeing & kayaking skills wouldn't translate to upright rowing. Part is this is true - you need to...More

Everyone wants to ride in a gondola, but this was much better. We met our guide and got underway. She taught us how to row correctly, both front and back in the boat. Very educational and great memories to boot. If you can, absolutely try...More

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
