Take part in a rowing course and discover the ancient tradition of ‘voga veneta’, a rowing technique invented in Venice to travel easily in the low waters of the lagoon. Do not miss the chance of seeing Venice from the water rowing in a typical boat! Water is the element at the centre of Expo Venezia 2015 and is the centre of life in Venice. This element, on which the beautiful city is built, has influenced the development of every aspect of Venetian life for centuries.

The rowing class in Venice by venetoinside.com gives you the chance of approaching the ancient art of ‘voga veneta’, a traditional Venetian rowing technique, and to see the city from an authentic and fascinating perspective. The rowing classes are organised by the association Viva Voga Veneta and take place between the small canals of Venice and its lagoon, to offer the participants the opportunity of learning the techniques to be used in the different areas of the city.
For the course two different types of Venetian boat could be used, according to the number of participants: the Batela for tours with a maximum of 4 participants, and the Buranela, for groups of 5-6 people. The rowing class begins among the canals of Venice, where the participants will learn to row surrounded by the beauty of the Venetian palaces seen from the water. Later, the class will move to the lagoon and the participants will try a different rowing technique surrounded by nature and beautiful panoramas.
