Jul 17th, 2009 | By | Category: Events

This is one of the  biggest celebrations in all of Italy and occurs every third weekend of July in Venice: La Festa del Redentore.  The history dates back to the time of the Plague that hit Europe.and to mark its end.  The Doge commissioned Andrea Palladino to design and build an impressive church on the island of Giudecca, an island in the Venetian lagoon.

Thousands of Venetians and visitors from all over the world keep up with the tradition with a celebration every year – a music and firework extravaganza and one not to miss.  As if Venice is not elaborate enough…..terraces and boats are decorated for the event.

A truly magical and unforgettable event held in probably the most beautiful city in the world.
