Row Venice is a non-profit organisation of passionate women and expert vogatrici, Venetian by birth and by choice. They are dedicated to the preservation of the traditional Venetian cultura acquea and at its centre, the voga alla veneta, the Venetian style of rowing: standing up, facing forward, native to Venice and made iconic by the gondoliers. Row Venice gets you off the beaten Venetian path and behind an oar, offering you the possibility to experience the rich heritage of this unique rowing style first-hand. Row Venice offers a classic 90-minute private lesson in a traditional, Venetian handcrafted all-wood batellina craft.
