Regata Storica

Schedule and Tickets

HISTORICAL GONDOLA PARADE
2018 September 2
 
The Regata Storica is the main event in the annual "Voga alla Veneta" rowing calendar. This unique sport has been practiced in the Venetian lagoons for thousands of years and today it is particularly well-known for the spectacular historical water pageant that precedes the race. Scores of typically 16th century-style boats with gondoliers in period costume carry the Doge, the Doge's wife and all the highest ranking Venetian officials up the Grand Canal in a brightly coloured parade. An unforgettable sight and a true reconstruction of the glorious past of one of most the powerful and influential Maritime Republics in the Mediterranean.
