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

The rowing lesson was fun and more challenging than...More

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
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
