Winter Lesson Packet

In Venice for an extended stay? Looking for time to improve your skill as you explore more of the city and the Venetian lagoon? Then the Winter Packet is for you. 


Five hours of Venetian rowing lessons for visitors who have the time to absorb this once-in-a-lifetime-Venice with the ‘air of the 1800s’.

Stay warm as you row on still, sunny luminous Venetian days. Lessons are private and for one or two people, always aboard one of our traditional belle batele a coda di gambero, offered only by Row Venice.


We’ll begin with a short technical introduction, then move immediately to the practical, with you at the bow and your instructor at the stern.

Once you are comfortable with the basic stroke at the front, you can also move to the back to get experience navigating the boat yourself, and even try some of the techniques for more complicated maneuvers.


With five hours at your disposal, you have the option to explore more of Venice and its beautiful lagoon.

Row the neighbourhood, the city, or row across the lagoon to Murano and beyond—just talk over the options with your instructor and off you go!
