    Festa del Redentore 2018

    The Festa del Redentore is one of the most important traditional events in Venice. It celebrates the end of the plague of the 16thcentury and is a yearly event ever since.

    Following a fascinating tradition that combines more than 400 years of history and folklore, the date of the feast of the Redeemer takes place on the third weekend of July. Make a note of the Redentore Venice dates and hurry to book your stay in the Venice lagoon: the Redentore Festival 2018 promises like every year to be one of the most acclaimed events of the Venetian calendar!


    Exclusive Redentore boat parties or in the elegant buildings of the historic centre enliven the night of the Redeemer’s feast in Venice Italy: dances and celebrations of all kinds will continue until dawn, pausing only around 11.30pm to watch the incredible Venice Redentore fireworks: a display of 40 minutes of pure magic that enchants the entire world and represents the most awaited event of the entire weekend! The Redentore fireworks festival 2018 will light up the entire city with cascades of coloured lights, reflections on the water and the play of shadows and lights that stand out on the facades of buildings and famous monuments.

    Joining the Festival of the Redeemer in Venice, Italy and its many events is a dream for many people. Given the influx of tourists coming to Venice during the Festa of Redentore in Venice, you should plan and book your stay well in advance! The choice of your hotel in Venice is important to keep in mind as hotel prices are soaring in the historic centre so you could consider accommodation on the nearby mainland and reach Venice by train or by public transport. Whichever accommodation you choose to take part in the Redeemer Festival in 2018, you should consider also the time for transfers to/from the hotel: if you only have two days to visit Venice it would be a shame to waste precious time trying to arrange public transport to reach your destination! So remember to book online in advance your transfer from/to Venice airport or station to your hotel or, if you arrive by car, to reserve a parking space in one of the car parks in Venice island.

    Do not underestimate the turnout at festivals and events at the Redentore night 2018: boat parties and gondola rides provide a limited number of places so it is better hurry and reserve in advance. If you prefer to watch the fireworks along the banks of the canal, you should find your desired position well in advance. The best locations are usually along the Riva degli Schiavoni and the Giudecca, but they are usually occupied by early afternoon!


    The Redentore in Venice is a festival deeply appreciated by the Venetians. Besides being a very spectacular event loved by tourists, the Redentore celebration in Venice is one of the oldest and most popular festivals in Venice: it commemorates the end of the terrible plague that during the 16th century decimated the population of Venice. To try and stem the pandemic, the Venetian Doge Alvise Mocenigo vowed to build a splendid basilica. The church of the Redentore was built on the place of the former church dedicated to Santa Maria degli Angeli, which was given to the Capuchins, on the Giudecca island. Andrea Palladio designed the church and laid the first stone in May 1577. This was in fact before the end of the plague and hence an implicit adjuration to God. After Palladio’s death in 1580, the works continued under the supervision of Antonio da Ponte, the architect of the Rialto bridge. In 1592, the church was completed and consecrated by Lorenzo Priuli, Patriarch of Venice, under Doge Pasquale Cicogna.

    Today, the Festa del Redentore is best known for the extraordinary fireworks display in the St Mark’s basin, but the old traditions, including the votive bridge and the solemn celebrations, presided over by the patriarch, continue annually as in 1577, keeping alive the deep and important meaning of the festival.


    The weekend of the Festa del Redentore is the only time that Giudecca is connected to the rest of Venice. This used to be via a bridge of barges, but it is now via a pontoon bridge made of 16 parts. The bridge is 330 meters long and 3.60 meters wide. It is put just above the water, except in the middle where small boats can pass underneath. Walking on the bridge at the same level as the church gives you a great opportunity to admire its beautiful façade.

    DAL MORO'S TIP: Take a walk across the bridge on Sunday morning to fully grasp the experience. The crowds will be less than in the afternoon.
