We will be in Venice from late afternoon Wednesday 4th June to 11ish in the morning of 8th June next week. I have just found out about Voga Longa and the Venice Canoe and Dragon Boat Festival. Can you please help with these questions:
1. Where would be good places to view these events?
2. When is the best time to get to the venues?
3. Would we in fact be able to see anything of Voga Longa given that we have to catch a train from Mestre at 11.32 a.m. on the 8th? We can buy a train ticket from Venice to Mestre beforehand. We only travel with hand luggage and could have this with us during Voga Longa if necessary.
Many thanks for your help.
PS Have just seen that Voga Longa is on 11th May! So please ignore that part.Edited: 30 May 2014, 10:45
