  • We got to experience the Regata Storica while visiting Venice and it was just amazing! We had just arrived to port when it all started and got to finish it by the Canal.  more »
  • On our first day in Venice we were presented with an opportunity to witness the Regatta. A colorful and pageantry filled spectacle. Unique boats powered by men and woman with oars. We has a terrific s...  more »
  • Most of the people do not know that every year coinciding with Mostra de cinema, and biennials (art and architecture) is celebrated the first Sunday of September, a very old Venetian custom: the historical regatta. The Carnival of Venice is something totally tourist, and the Redeemer is so massive that it is impossible to go (Besides that now appears will not admit more tourists for that party in Venice). The regatta is an event that Venetians live with passion: all that rowing (women, children, men, the elderly, all) go out in their boats to look along the canals and the Canal Grande. Many Italians also come to see this race, and no wonder. It is the hour of the brilliance of the Grand Canal... as the celebration of his birthday (the feast of the Redeemer is the Giudecca Canal). By Sunday afternoon, but 3 days before starting to prepare the Canal with stands for the awards, television and media, people dress up for the day... All mixed with the Mostra de cinema and events that exist throughout the city. Important: 3 hours before the vaporettos by the Grand Canal are canceled and people will occupy anywhere on the channel to see the race. Does not need to buy sites: go 2 hours before any output of a gondola-traghetto, take food and drink and wait... Two days before starting the different ceremonies of blessing of sailing and sailors, choirs and bands, etc. It is authentic... Oh, and the next day the results of the race... all a passion in the city of truth.
