Redentore feast-day

Redentore feast-dayThe Redentore feast it’s one of the most traditional festivities in Venice and it’s celebrated every year on the third saturday of July, to remember the end of the plague in the XIV century.

During this feast in Giudecca is built a votive bridge of boats that connects the island to the city, while people eats traditional venetian dishes under the stars on the fondamenta.
Near San Marco and along Giudecca’s channel many illuminated boats gather all together, eating and waiting for the firework show at midnight. Then some boats go to Lido to wait for new dawn.
The weekend ends with a gondola regatta and religious celebrations.
