Things to do in Venice

Vogalonga in Venice

1974, St. Martin’s Day. It all began with some friends that had organized a regatta involving “mascarette”, a particular kind of Venetian boat. Since that day, more than 30 years ago, the fans of this sport have gathered together to celebrate the city and its traditions and to protest against the motorboat-generated swell. The competition has grown to the extent that in recent years some 1500 boats have participated.
“Vogalonga is an expression of love for Venice and its lagoon, for the islands that surround the city and its boats. Its aim is to continue the tradition from which it was born: spreading an awareness and respect for the nature and culture of our city”. (from the event official website)
