Meet the escort at your hotel (if not too far from the rowing lesson area) and on foot to the meeting point.
Learn how to row a gondola in Venice, a novel and fun way to learn about one of the oldest traditions of Venice
and get in touch with water, the element that has made Venice a unique city in the world. Thanks to this
unique course in Venice you will learn how to row and all the secrets of Voga Veneta. Rowing Venetian boats is
a charming and very particular technique developed in Venice and the surrounding areas because of the unique
hydro geological characteristics of the area.
Our rowing lessons will take you through the most evocative canals of Venice and its enchanting lagoon in
order for you to learn how to row aboard a typical Venetian boat, which has a flat bottom to navigate without
problems in just a few inches of water.
Among the elements that best characterize Venice rowing - a unique rowing technique born from the need to
manoeuvre around the canals, swamps and marshes - are rowing while standing with feet facing forward and
the use of an oar leaning on a crutch open – called FORCOLA - for easy navigation around the intricate maze of
waterways around Venice.
