Ever wondered what it would be like to steer one of those wooden gondolas you see everywhere in Venice? Now's your chance to find out! Step into the hand-crafted, all-wood batella, or gondola, and enjoy a private lesson in the art of rowing and steering this legendary boat.

After a brief instruction you will stand up, face forward in the voga alla veneta rowing style and, together with your instructor, paddle your craft through the beautiful canals of Venice.

Once you get out into the lagoon you will even have the opportunity to steer! You will come away from this experience with a good understanding of how integral voga is to the Venetian heritage. Best of all, a portion of your lesson payment goes to support women and youth voga alla veneta athletes as well as a variety of associations that promote this unique rowing style.

Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly experience something you have never done before! Book your private adventure today and prepare to set off for the thrill of a lifetime.
