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.

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 spot perched on the roof of the Ca'Sagredo hotel.

We found a spot along the canal where we sat and had a picnic while waiting for the Regata Storica to start. The pageantry, costumes and historic gondolas were gorgeous.
