WELCOME TO VENICE!
Venice needs no introduction. The name says it all, invoking images of gondolas gliding silently through the canals. It is the city of romance, of poets, of musicians and artists. Of navigators and explorers. Great emperors wanted her. No-one ever conquered her. But Venetians conquered the world – the splendors of this unique city making it a place that everybody wanted to see.
The hotels we chose for these Championships are located on the mainland, just over the bridge from Venice and from the race venue.
The month of September is still high season in Venice with hotel rates being at their highest. It is the month of the Venice Film Festival and the Historical Regatta.
2017 is also the year of the Venice Biennale of Art. These events attract a great number of persons to Venice. Mestre, which is part of Venice, is very conveniently located on the mainland.
The World Dragon Boat Championships Organising Committee is recruiting volunteers willing to collaborate on the event’s organization and to help with all the necessary activities to make the event work out perfectly.
