In the old days, everyone was able to participate in the rowing boat races held at the Historical Reggata in September on Venice’ Canal Grande, however now the races are only open to Venetian rowers. It would be a fun thing to do to watch this historical traditional event while on tour in Venice.

Antonio Vivaldi was born in 1678 in Venice and started teaching the violin at the Ospedale della Pieta in 1703. His Baroque works allowed him to gain recognition and respect in the city and around the world.
The church of Ospedale della Pieta holds frequent mass services and even some music programs of Baroque style to this day, so it would be interesting to attend some of their events while on your trip in Venice.
