Loved this night time Venetian rowing lesson on the Grand Canal! Jane was the most patient and excellent teacher, who is skilled at giving just the right amount of guidance and making the learning experience enjoyable. I can’t describe how amazing it was to row down the Grand Canal Venetian style: thank you Row Venice!

Our children (13, 11 and 6 years old) and we had great fun with our rowing instructors Elena and Valentina. They showed us and the children with a lot of patience how a gondolier rows and furthermore we got a lot of interesting information about Venice. For us it was a very enriching moment that we will not forget. Thank you very much!!!

This is an absolute MUST DO experience when in Venice! I took 16 Masters degree students to row venice to have them understand what Venetian style voga was all about. Needless to say they had a total BLAST. The teachers know their stuff and were very good at explaining the basics to the group. Due to the high winds we stayed in the canals rather than venturing into the lagoon and it was absolutely magical.

Row Venice was the highlight of our Venice Trip! We decided to book a Cicchetto Row (learning to row a gondola followed by stops at a few dining establishments for food and drink) at the last minute, and at first we didn't think we could do it but they pull through for us. Our instructor (Jane) was experienced and wonderful - we had a great time learning how to row from her, as well as great conversations during the entire 2 and a half hour row. Absolutely recommend Row Venice - bravo!

Oh WOW what an experience! After seeing row Venice on ‘somebody feed Phil’ we booked it as soon as our trip got the ‘go ahead’. Firstly our lesson started in a part of Venice we’d never explored, which we loved! Our instructor Nancy, was amazing from the very start, put us at ease, made it super fun and also very informative. We chose the ‘Cicchetto Row’ which was amazing, we got to try food and wine that we probably never would’ve and to enjoy eating and drinking whilst sat in the sun on a gondolier was just the best experience! On booking we mentioned that we were there on our honeymoon and Nancy surprised us with a bottle of Prosecco which was so lovely and much appreciated after rowing in the open water. Row Venice shows a side of Venice you can’t experience in any other way and I would 100% recommend everyone to do it!
