Two and a half hours flies by surprisingly quickly and if you pay good attention to the instructor you will have no problems with stamina even in the waves of the lagoon or the chaos of the Grand Canal. Great interactions with the friendly crew enable you to learn more about life in Venice, local tips, the history of rowing and life on the canals. A first class experience enabling you to really get away from the crowds but still admire them and the beauty of Venice as you paddle out on the Grand Canal with views of the Rialto Bridge behind you. Carlo was a superb instructor and a lot of fun to be with.

One of the best experiences done in Venice! I have been to Venice many times and after visiting all the classics I wanted to find something different and it was the best choice!
This is the only lesson which lasts 2.5 hours (all the others are around 1/1.30h) and it was enjoyable all time. Carlo, our instructor, taught us how to row in a real Venetian way, going out towards Murano and even rowing on the Grand Canal! Absolutely amazing being on the water together with other boats, taxis and gondole. I loved it and I hope to come back soon to take even more lessons!
