On 8 May 2022, regatta disputed by 10 boats representing the city’s districts.
The Palio in Taranto is a regatta in custom disputed by 10 rowing boats that represent the city’s districts. The boats, pushed by two oarsmen who row standing on foot, must cover the entire circumnavigation of the old town in less than 30 minutes.
The Palio starts on May 8 2022, on the first day of the celebration in honour of the patron Saint Cataldo, while the second and determining round usually takes place during the Sea Festival, on June 2nd.
