An event that attracts thousands of tourists to Venice each year for a highly exciting event, this year the traditional Venice Historical Regatta will takes place on 2th September.

With traditional sixteenth-century style boats and sailors in period dress, this historical procession evokes the splendour of the Venetian Republic.
According to tradition, the Regata Storica commemorates an event in 1498 when a lavish procession was organised down the Grand Canal to welcome Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus, who had renounced her rule in favour of Venice.
