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.

We did Row Venice the day we arrived in Venice so that we could stay awake. Best activity ever. Girls teaching us to row were delightful.

Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying

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.

The guides provide several layers of wet suits from nose to toes. I would contact them and ask but I doubt it will be a problem.
