Visit Venice for Vogalonga

Travellers on Venice tours will be able to join in with a celebration of the city’s waterways and maritime heritage this year at the Vogalonga.

This huge boat race is one of the city’s most popular traditional events, with a history stretching back to 1975 when it was founded by a group of rowing enthusiasts.

Scheduled for May 31st this year, the race will follow a route starting in St Mark’s basin, heading off around St Helen island and passing the isles of Mazzorbo, Madonna del Monte and San Giacomo in Paludo.

One of the most popular places to gather to see the race is the Punta della Dogana opposite St Mark’s Square, which serves as the finish line.

The organisers of the Vogalonga describe it as "an act of love for Venice and its waters, its lagoon and its islands", which embraces local history and traditions while also welcoming participants and visitors from around the world.

In 2007, more than 1,500 boats carrying over 5,000 rowers took part in the Vogalonga.
