    Fantastic colors. What is the Regata Storica? Do they put the vegetables on the gondolas for the Regata?

  2. Gaia Says:

    The Regata Storica (Historical Regatta)is one of the most spectacular events of Venice.
    It is a re-evocation of the welcome given to Caterina Cornaro, wife of the King of Cyprus, in 1489 after she renounced her throne in favour of Venice. there is a procession of 16th century style boats, dozens of multi-coloured and decorated boats (also with fruits) with people in period costume.
    Really it worth to be seen.
