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

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

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

Just checked and the website seems active. You need to go to the "Book Your Lesson" page. We paid 85 euros for an hour and a half lesson.

Hi there, it is not a ticket per person. You hire he boat. Go to their website and you’ll find the prices per boat and experience offer.
