Venice - Canal Grande: Lifestyle - Regata Storica

Venice - Canal Grande: Lifestyle - Regata Storica. For thousands of years the Regata Storica takes place every first Sunday of September, the Canal Grande comes to a standstill and Venetians gather in the Palazzi to watch and party during this spectacular historical pageant. Typically 16th century-style boats in period costume carry the Doge and high-ranking Venetian officials up the Grand Canal in a brightly colored parade, which today precedes the races.

“La citta scoppia di festa Ammassati su rive e pontili per fotografare corteo e gare”
Il Gazzettino

"The city bursts with celebration on the banks and piers - people are massed to photograph the parade and races“ titles Il Gazzettino. So wonderful to see the interest of so many people enjoying watching and photographing the Regata Storica.
