The Vogalonga Regatta is a fun sporting event that allows participants to make their way along the scenic 30-kilometer-long racecourse which passes through the winding Venetian canals and past stunning historical buildings.
The event has become more and more popular over the past few years with thousands of participants and onlookers coming from all over the world to witness this unique event.
Rather than only using traditional Venetian watercraft, some participants like to take a different approach by building their own boats, taking inspiration from historical design or even Chinese dragon boats.
Regardless of where you come in the race, participants receive a commemorative medal and certificate.
