(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageThe  Vogalonga is a rowing marathon all around Venice and the Lagoon. Each year the number of participants, especially from other countries increases. Sometimes the number of competing boats goes up to 1500. The race starts in the morning with a large number of boats of various sizes and shapes gathering in St. Mark's Basin opposite the Doge's Palace and then setting off on an approximately 30 kilometre long route, rowing between lagoon islands before heading back to Venice along the Rio di Cannaregio to end at the Punta della Dogana.
