The best thing we decided to do in Venice. €85 for an hour and half. You get taught how to row, on the front, and switch back and forth between the group as often as you want. The canals you go through are in the more 'local' area of Venice, so they're fairly quiet and a lot more picturesque! That being said, you'll have to be happy to be in lots of tourist photos, as the boat you row in is one of only six originals left in Venice! Please do this over spending €80 for a half hour gondola ride in the crowded centre! The teacher was super friendly, gave us loads of information on the area, and honestly, who can say they've rowed a gondola on the canals of Venice!

Thanks for the row Sophia!! Had an awe-some time today on our row and coffee ;) was fun out on the main sea bay to get to row at the back. If anyone is not sure, go for it. The staff are very friendly and accommodating to all levels. Plus you'll go around areas of Venice that are no where near as busy as the main areas. Feels more authentic and much more memorable. Ciao Ciao!!

We had a great time with Row Venice and would recommend it to anyone. Our guide/translator was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were a bit nervous about rowing as we are not experienced, but they made us feel really safe and made sure we got a memorable experience.

We got to row our own gondola! Gondola teacher taught us well and continued the lessons in the rain! We rowed from this point all the way to the grand canal and back! Amazing experience! Your Venetian experience isn't complete without this!
