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.

We did Row Venice the day we arrived in Venice so that we could stay awake. Best activity ever. Girls teaching us to row were delightful.

Once we arrived in Venice we had been certain we would take a gondola ride. When we saw how expensive it was and how everyone stopped and stared we weren't so sure. But then we saw this experience last minute - just 5 euros more,...More

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
