REGATA STORICA 2016 SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2016
The Regata Storica is one of the most spectacular, picturesque and moving events of Venetian Life, capable of both charming the tourists and exciting the locals.
A historical procession commemorates the welcome given to Caterina Cornaro, wife of the King of Cyprus, in 1489 after she renounced her throne in favor of Venice.
It is a procession of 16th century style boats, with the famous Bucintoro, the boat representing the Serenissima, as its head.
Then comes the competition. The spectators participate with gusto and shouts of encouragement during the sporting events.
