We booked with Row Venice on May 6. I wanted to try something new on this trip rather than sit in a gondola for 30 minutes and pay e80. Row Venice is e140 for 90 minutes and we loved it. This was our 10 year...More

My previous travels to Venice included the touristy gondola ride given by gondoliers with striped shirts who sing, etc. On this trip, I wanted a different experience for my children (8 & 10) and myself. We chose Row Venice and had an absolute blast. Anna...More

Loved our rowing lesson with Gulia! Our 2 boys (ages 14 and 11) said this was one of their favorite activities during our whole week long tour of Italy. Really fun for the whole family, definitely recommend!

The guides provide several layers of wet suits from nose to toes. I would contact them and ask but I doubt it will be a problem.
