Row Venice was absolutely the highlight of our trip to Venice! We went aboard with some trepidation and nervousness but our instructor Nancy couldn't have been more reassuring. Nancy was very calm and proffessional and completely put us at ease. She took us to the...More

Brilliant 90 minutes spent learning to row the Venetian way in a traditional boat along & around the canals and into the lagoon itself. Expert tuition and local knowledge all adding to a fun “doing” experience. Highly recommended

We did the row and eat lunch experience. We're seniors. 12/10! Quiet canals, very few touists, see a part of Venice away from the crowds.Delicious lunch. Expensive? Yup. Stretched our budget but worth every penny.

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.
