10 Instagram photos to attend the Regata Storica in Venice (even if you are not there!)

The Regata Storica

In the past few weeks we dedicated a post to Venice, explaining what it is like visiting the Venice Film Festival on a shoestring budget. But during the beginning of September, another unmissable event happens in Venice: The Regata Storica!

We do not want to bore you telling you about its orgins and its history, we would just  like to give you the chance to attend The Regata Storica through 10 beautiful Instagram photos even if you are not physically there (the race will be Sunday, September 6) … you will not regret it! 🙂

1 – Have you ever seen an orchestra with a view like this one? Sit down and enjoy it!

7 – Rare and colorful boats decorated by hand are something you have to see

The Regata Storica di Venezia, a few years back, I flew in from the U.S. West coast, landed in the morning, checked in, freshened up & immediately went to my reserved seat in the stands to watch the Regata Storica. I was so tired by the end, sitting in the hot sun, with only a few hours of sleep on the plane within the last 24 + hours, but it was so worth it. #venice #venezia #regatastorica #adayinvenice #ilovevenice #loves_venezia #myvenice #mytravelaffairs #passionpassport #bbctravel #postcardsfromtheworld #dreameurotrip #dreamdestination #yourtrips #globejetsetter #aroundtheworld #amazingplaces #traveler_stories #5secondvacay #grandcanal #gondola #yahootravel #tripadvisor #livetravelchannel #travelabout #travelmemories #photographyismypassion #bbctravel #wanderlust #huffposttravel
