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.

The Cicchetto row was an amazing experience. Elena, Sofia and Lisa are the best rowing teachers. We had a great time while learning the basics of rowing and we had a even better time when we got to the two bacari for the apero. Great...More

We did this on the last day of our trip as something different from a gondola ride, and it was an amazing experience. Gabriella was patient as we wobbled around at the start, and by the end of the lesson we were standing and paddling...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.

Hi there, morning light is clearer - afternoon light will be romantic. In September there is still sunshine till around 18:00 hrs - so you will have two full hours of light, when the day is a sunny day. Venice and romance... More
