Row like a Venetian

Row Venice location, ca. 1800sLooking for something different to do in Venice, something truly authentic and un-touristy? Get off the beaten path and onto the waterways by trying your hand at Venetian rowing. Called the voga alla veneta, it’s the unique, stand-up rowing style developed centuries ago to traverse the city and its lagoon, today made iconic by the gondoliers. Now you can experience this rich heritage first-hand, yourself.

While getting a taste of this exhilarating, inherently green and sustainable activity, you’ll also be supporting our non-profit organization’s goals to support women who race, kids who learn, and organizations who work to keep the voga an integral part of the city—as we simultaneously raise international awareness and generate broader support for the role of the voga and typical Venetian boats.

By participating in—not just observing—this unique, very-Venetian pastime, you’ll support our cause while acquiring a visceral connection to the city that is both historic and intimate. You, too, will understand that

there is nothing more Venetian than the Voga.
