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 got a deal from a slow Sunday. One man asked us if 75 Euros for the boat sound good. We were thinking 150 Euros total, so YES. We came around and he even helped find ATM. Then we went around the bridge and city...More

Great fun, very nice, commited and professional instructors. It was harder then I thought to row a real 'batea e coe de Geambero' so it gave a big respect for what the Gondoliers in the narrow waterways of Venice do. The administration (organising the tour)...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
