We really enjoyed learning how to row the Venetian way. Elena & Valentina inspired confidence in a couple of land lubbers with jelly for sea legs. They were also very informative on the history and inside info on Venice and it's islands. I would recommend...More

Who needs a gondola ride when you can learn to do it yourself and spend the same if not less money for more time on the boat. We had Jane as our instructor and she was wonderful, very patient, and very knowledgeable. We had an...More

Confirming all reviews below, we really enjoyed learning how Venetian rowing works and getting out on the water, instead of just watching. The tutors were very patient and thoughtful about how to instruct clearly, plus also filling in stories about the canals, life and boats...More

We did this on our first night in Venice and we loved it. We learned a lot about Venice and rowing from our great teacher Carolina. Rowing is not easy, but we had a great time! The cichetto row is a great time of day,...More

We decide not to take a gondola ride and instead go for a gondola lesson :-) Well not exactly a gondola. We learned that gondolas were the limousines of the canals favoured by richer Venetians for short trips of discrete rendezvous with people you shouldn't...More

The row Venice option was fantastic. A great way to get a feel for how important water transport is and how Venice functions, plus some good exercise on the way. The interpreter and expert rower were fantastic; understanding (they had to be when they saw...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

Outstanding reviews! I'd like to book a Row Tour for the evening of Sept 12, for two adults. Do you have times available? And do you have a website that I can use to book the tour? (Or can I just put in a reservation here and take care of payment when we arrive?) Thank you.

Hi, We booked directly through their website: rowvenice It lists available days/times. they are really good about emailing directions to their meeting point. Enjoy!
I plan to book a lesson from my wife and me in late September. What time of day would you recommend? Since my wife likes to take photographs, I have been focused on either the morning (8:30 if it's available or 10:00 or in the afternoon at 16:00.
