We (couple) enjoyed our session rowing the batellina. Jane introduced each of us to the strokes needed to move the surprisingly stable and fast boat through the canal and into the open water of the lagoon. The main thing was to try to look cool,...More
This was a great way to be on the water in Venice without the overpriced gondola rides. Valentina and Elena were fantastic. They make rowing look so easy but it isn't easy at all! My husband absolutely loved the hour and a half we had...More

What a wonderful way to see Venice. We've been to Venice multiple times, but had not spent much time in the Cannaregio area, and definitely had never learned to row a voga (a gondola-like boat). Terrific way to spend an evening, and the Cichetto Row...More
I agree with Mozarts fathers view on Venice. No where else is a city built on a swamp and uses the canals for everything. Generally the place is overcrowded and over touristy with most people scurrying like rats with their limited time which averages 1.4...More
We loved our rowing lesson with Gabriella! On a very hot Sunday in Venice we decided to begin early and had our lesson at 8am. It was a lovely ride and lots of fun learning how to row (not as easy as it looks!) Gabriella...More
We booked this rather than the standard gondola ride and were not disappointed. Our instructor Nan was amazing, her patients must have been worn to

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
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
