So help me, how does a Google search on "Dragon Boat Race in Italy." conjure up: "The other main legend concerns the poignant saga of a famous Chinese patriot poet named Qu Yuan a.k.a. Ch'u Yuen in the ..." Has China entirely taken over Google or something?

Was it in Venice?

Right, my next guess would have been Venice, too. So I take my second choice: one of the Italian lakes maybe?

Chinese dragon boats have taken over Google

Well I'm assuming that Venezia = Venice so I guess that will be a YES to Vyon.

For me it's over. I know we have some extended fun sometimes but the game is called Where in the world

Maybe someone else will go for the "extra points"

Perhaps Jube would like to post the whole picture? It's quite spectacular.

Thanks to my son's holiday pictures, Google, and some inspired guesswork, PM sent.

And for bonus points, Vyon also got the Historical Regatta correct ~ HOORAY. Unfortunately the photo I have is of the dragon only which kind of brought to mind Anneli's original premise of where in the world is the dragon I don't have one of the whole boat though, just the dragon.

Notice that the Venetians still propel it Venetian/Maltese style; not paddle it like a dragon boat.
