May Events in Venice

There are so many opportunities to enjoy Venice in May, a lot of smaller events around… but – for now – we give you 3 dates not to be missed for their historical and international relevance.

May 13 – Feast of the Ascension

One of the most beloved feasts in Venice, “Festa della Sensa”, will take place this year on May 13. During this feast tourists can relive the age-old history of the Serenissima Republic and its intimate relationship with the Sea and the rowing. Do not miss today the ceremony of the “Wedding with the Sea” in front of the Church of S. Nicolò del Lido and the many regattas in the basin of San Marco, where the typical Venetian rowing boats challenge.

It is not a competitive race, but every year more than thousand boats participate in it, because the chance to row through the city of Venice and the lagoon up to Burano. A wondwerful experience to try at least once in your life!
