  • The historic regatta (Regata storica) is one of the brightest and colorful events in Venice. It takes place annually on the first Sunday in September. On this day, for several hours the Grand Canal is closed to the vaporetto (public transport) and is fully given to the participants of the regatta. Regata storica consists of two main parts - colorful historical representation and emotional sports competition. The main grandstand is located at Ca' Foscari. Several more floating stands are being erected, tickets for which must be booked in advance. You can watch and completely free, but the place you need to choose a few hours before the start. I watched from the private jetty opposite the Palazzo Don' dalle Trezze. The spectacle is impressive! Historic ships, participants in historical costumes. And if the Venice Carnival is a show for tourists, then the regatta is rather an event for the locals. It's beautiful. And how sick the Italians are for their favorite rowers!
