Redentore in Venice: tradition and glamour for the most Venetian festival of the year

Every third Sunday in July, for over four centuries, in Venice the Festa del Redentore has celebrated the end of the plague that ravaged the city in the sixteenth century. A pontoon bridge is built connecting Venice to the island of Giudecca and the votive Church of the Redeemer, built in thanksgiving for the deliverance from the plague.

On Saturday night, all of Venice eagerly awaits the fireworks show. Just like in old paintings, hundreds of beautifully decorated and illuminated boats, bedecked with colourful paper lanterns, gather at dusk in the Basin of St. Mark’s for the exceptional display of fireworks.

For the Feast of the Redentore we have reserved a special welcome for our guests: the Hotel Bauer Palladio on Giudecca, one of the privileged spots from where to watch the fireworks, with dinner by candlelight in the rose garden of the hotel, and reserved seating facing the lagoon for the show.

It will be the fitting close of a program of business meetings, and custom-designed cultural itineraries and tours.

Once again, we have created our magic together with Venice.
