Description

Get on board a gondola and take part in one of Venice's most popular events: The Regata Storica.

Every year on the first Sunday in September, the Regata Storica celebrates the arrival of the Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro, in Venice in 1489. The Regata Storica competitions are preceded by a magnificent parade of ships, the Corteo Storico, with gondoliers dressed in16th-century costumes.

From your gondola, you will admire the colourful parade along the Grand Canal. Stops are planned so that you can discover the traditional boats in the lagoon. Prepare to enjoy a vivid display of Venice's traditional customs from your gondola!

This activity is only available on the day of the Regata Storica
