THE NIGHT OF FIRE­WORKS

Italia Luxury - - Delight In The Great Beauty | Save The Date -

Com­mem­o­rat­ing the city’s de­liv­rance from the plague in the 16th cen­tury, the ‘Festa del Re­den­tore’ or Feast of the Re­deemer, is a re­li­gious hol­i­day and spec­tac­u­lar event much loved by the peo­ple of Venice. For two days, dur­ing the third week in July, a bridge of boats, across the Gi­udecca Canal links the church with the banks of the Zat­tere in Dor­so­duro, and hun­dreds of boats of all shapes and sizes fill the Gi­udecca. In ad­di­tion to re­gat­tas and par­ties through­out the city, the high­light of the event is the fire­works dis­play, which lights up the en­tire basin of St. Marks on the Satur­day evening. 15-16 July Feast of the Re­deemer San Marco basin, Venice www.where-venice.com
