Regata Storica 1600

The Historic Regata of Venice is an annual event held on the first Sunday of September in the Grand Canal of Venice. The regata is a celebration of the city’s rich history and maritime culture, featuring a procession of historic boats and gondolas adorned with ornate decorations and colorful flags.

The highlight of the regata is the competitive rowing races, with participants from various Venetian rowing clubs vying for victory in their traditional rowing boats. The races are divided into several categories, including men’s and women’s singles, doubles, and quadruples, as well as races for younger rowers.

The regata also includes a parade of historical boats, featuring replicas of galleys, warships, and other vessels that were once a common sight in Venice’s busy waterways. The boats are rowed by costumed participants in period dress, adding to the colorful spectacle of the event.

For visitors to Venice, the Historic Regata is a unique opportunity to experience the city’s vibrant culture and traditions, as well as its deep connection to its waterborne heritage. With its lively atmosphere and breathtaking scenery, the regatta is a truly unforgettable experience.
