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.

Took our 10 year old grandson. It was very enjoyable but harder than you think. You appreciate the ease that gondoliers display much more after a rowing lesson.we are 65+ and tried the middle /front rower slot but only grandson tried the rear/main rower spot....More

This was our favorite experience in Venice. Rowing is harder than you think! There is a definite technique that is challenging! It was nice that the meeting point was off the beaten path...but give yourself enough time to get lost! Our guide was very helpful...More

Knowing how busy Venice's waterways are, we were a little apprehensive about how this was going to work. It couldn't have been easier, or more enjoyable! Elena was our instructor/guide/hostess and she was amazing. We were instructed in a very quiet canal and caught on...More

One of the best experiences in Venice! Marta and Barnaba are the BEST instructors. Not only did they teach us the art of rowing but a history lesson as well. Must do when in Venice.

Definitely the best thing you can do on your trip to Venice. This beats paying for a 30 minute gondola ride any day. Gabriella, our instructor, was patient, kind, and funny - she shared tons of information with us and we had a wonderful time....More

Cannaregio
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.
