Regata Storica: Gondolas and boat races in Venice

Thousands of holidaymakers have joined locals in Venice to flank the city’s Grand Canal for the lavish ‘Regata Storica,’ or ‘Historical Regatta,’ which is held on the first Sunday in September. It’s made up of two parts: The water pageant, featuring scores of beautiful 16th-century boats paddled by gondoliers in period costumes. They carry the Doge and his wife up the Grand Canal, along with all of Venice’s high-ranking officials. Then the crews of Venetian rowing clubs take to the water for races, a thrilling finale to the day.
