Overview

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.

This is a rowing lesson with expert women rowers using very stable boats. We started out on a quiet side canal but made our way out into a larger canal so it was thrilling. Our instructor, Sophia, was very professional and we felt perfectly safe....More

Lovely tour (and workout) with Christina and Angelina. It's spectaculair to row (your self) in a beautiful gondola in the dark on Canal Grande. Friendly tour gides, leaving us with a big smile on the dock of the bay at the end of the tour.

If you have the time take one hour and a half to have a delightful experience rowing in the not so turistic channels and in the middle of the Lagoon. We had the pleasure to row with a very nice “teacher”, Anna, who also gave...More

It can be a workout, they take you out to some open water and we had a bit of chop so trying to keep your balance can be a bit tricky.

Cannaregio
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

The guides provide several layers of wet suits from nose to toes. I would contact them and ask but I doubt it will be a problem.
