Regata Storica

Venice’s foremost rowing race, this traditional occurrence featuring rowers standing on the lagoon’s typical gondolas is held annually on the first Sunday of September with a festival that involves the whole city. The historic water parade in costume with its arrival on the Grand Canal in front of the “Machina,” a floating stage for the local authorities and unbridled cheering by a multitude of enthusiasts make this occasion one of the most beautiful and exciting events in Venice.
