We loved the education and attempts to row, at which we were not too successful! Even more, our guide was incredibly patient and friendly with my jet lagged 10 year old!

In looking for fun, interesting, and adventurous things to do in Venice with kids, I happened upon the website Row Venice. We booked a rowing lesson....something a typical visitor to Venice may not consider. On the day of our lesson, I remembered that the Row Venice website suggested to allow a good bit of time to reach the Sacca Misericordia... More

Our rowing class turned out to be one of the most memorable things in my 6 week trip. Don't miss it! It's a unique experience to stand on top of the boat when out in the open lagoon (I almost fell in at one point, but recovered in time). I haven't been on a normal gondalier ride but I would... More

This is a wonderful adventure for a group who wishes to see Venice from the leisurely pace of a gondola, but also get a chance to row the boat. The boat is not a traditionally tricked out gondola, but a serviceable style of boat made for this type of adventure and Felix made it fun and very worthwhile for a... More

Rowing isn't easy but it's pretty fun! An enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, though you will be sore the next day!

We loved our rowing class! My boys, 9 and 11, thought it was super cool to row, and so did mom and dad! We got to go around some of the smaller canals, and out into the lagoon. Everyone (except me) even got to stand on top and row like a gondolier. We also learned some history, which the boys... More

My wife & I enjoyed an awesome afternoon rowing lesson in Venice with Caroline. When people ask us if we rode in a gondola in Venice, we answer: "No, we rowed our own." :-) While a purist might insist that this is not a "true" gondola, I will concede the point but reply--"Who cares--It's close enough for me!" Caroline paced... More

This was the best experience we had on our trip to Italy...an absolute MUST for anyone spending time in Venice. Our instructor, Anna, was patient and fun to be with. She told us about the sights as we passed, and took us down some side canals to places we would normally never go as tourists. And rowing is such a... More
