We are a group of local vogatori, Venetian by birth and by choice, dedicated to the preservation and promotion of traditional Venetian cultura acquea, the water culture. It starts with the voga, and you can try it yourself.
Looking for something different to do in Venice? By offering you the opportunity to try the voga alla veneta — the unique, stand-up rowing style developed to traverse the city and its lagoon, and made iconic by the gondoliers — you’ll have a rare, first-hand experience of this rich heritage. At the same time, you’ll be supporting our non-profit, all-volenteer organization’s efforts to keep this the voga an integral part of the city, as we raise international awareness and generate broader support for the role of the voga and typical Venetian boats.
By participating in—not just observing—this very-Venetian pastime, you’ll acquire a profound understanding of the city that is both historic and intimate, while getting a taste of this unique and exhilarating activity. Learn more about our small group, sustainable offerings:
• our classic, 1.5 hour, private Venetian Rowing Lesson, €40 per person (€80 minimum)
• the Cichetto Row, where foodies and wine enthusiasts can combine a lesson with a girò d’ombra, sampling food and wine of Venice.
• how you will row the Grand Canale Grande after dark with Venezia di Sera.
