Regata Storica

We plan on attending this in Sept. Does anyone have any recommendations on a good place to watch/take photos? We're also not sure what time it starts or the time we need to be there to get a good view? Thanks!

Somewhere comfy!!!! Generally you are not permitted o hang round on bridges. i would suggest Rialto mercato area or San Marcuola for a good view... The historic procession is well worth watching as are the races.

Thank you! Can't wait to see it. We arrive the Friday before so hope we can figure out how to get there by Sunday. LOL!! We're staying in the Cannaregio area. Also, do you know what time we need to get there and what time it starts?

Here's the official website: www.regatastoricavenezia.it/index.php?lang=it

[found by googling 'regata storica']

If you click on 'Programma', you will find it starts at 16:00. If you want close-ups, get to the Rio dell'Arsenale before 15:00, which should give you time to get back to the Grand Canal and find a vantage point.

If you are in Cannaregio then, San Marcuola is the spot to be, however we always enjoyed going to the Arsenale as Venicelover suggested...you see them all come out to the Grand Canal from there but not ness airily the race....

I also am considering a last-minute trip to Venice for Regata Storica with my 4 year old. On the website I see advertised tickets for purchase (see excerpt):

www.regatastoricavenezia.it/index.php?lang=en

ATTENDING THE REGATA STORICA 2013 ON THE TRIBUNE OF SAN TOMA'

You can attend the Regata Storica 2013 comfortably seated on the tribune set up near Campo San Toma'. The floating platform, set in one of the most beautiful and spectacular route along the Grand Canal, allows you to see every regatta passing twice in front of you (before and after the tour of "paleto"), and of course the historical parade and other events, with perfect view on the finishing line in front of Ca 'Foscari and the "machina".

Prices:

Non-residents in the Municipality of Venice:

Full: Euro 50.00

Boys 6/18 years: Euro 25.00

Children under 6 free, with no seat assignment and accompanied by an adult.

Questions:

1) Is this advisable and why/why not?

2) how does this "floating platform" exactly work--are there bathrooms-4 y/o son and not clear how long the event goes; if I were to buy just one ticket for me is the idea that he'd sit on my lap the whole time?

Thanks!

No bathrooms ...it would be boring for a young one to watch all the time.. Simply as the boats go past and then you have a wait until they row up to the turning point and come back again.

It really is a floating tribune plastic chairs so yes he would have to sit on your lap. It is a great event but I would possibly find a spot to watch the historical parade - well worth it and then maybe the start of a race then wander and come back to watch some more if he is interested.
