Venice: Epiphany Regatta

January 6, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

In a city that holds hundreds of regatta races throughout the year, this one stands out, as it features 50 men dressed as La Befana (the Epiphany witch). The rowers paddle up the Grand Canal and toward the Rialto Bridge, competing to be the first to reach a giant stocking that hangs from the bridge. This is an exciting event to witness if you are in Venice for the holidays.
