Events & Happenings

by the Adriatic

In addition to a series of historical events like the Venice Carnival, the Regatta Barcolana (Trieste) the Adriatic comes up with a lot more entertain the guests.


For current events it pays to simply ask at the front desk of your hotel (at least an impressive fireworks you can find almost everywhere by the end of the season).

Venice Carnival

Karneval Venedig

The Venice Carnival is straight-forward, so there is not much to explain, except: Where can I get a room?

Events in Venice

There are a variety of different races held in Venice. For instance the Regatta Storica - the highlight of the rowing season (on the 1st Sunday in September), where everything is taken out, the only condition is: It must be able to float on the water.

There is held a regatta too at the carnival (see the video above). Or the Vogalonga. We do also recommend to consider the Barcolana (not in Venice but in Trieste).

Riviera Fiorita

The counter-event to the Regatta, but on the river Brenta: The Riviera Fiorita in September. Who knows it all in Venice, this is the place.
