Some news on the tradition as the party took place before the pandemic 2020.


to enjoy the air of waiting for the temporary mobile votive bridge built on boats that from the Zattere island of Giudecca to allow

the faithful to give the votes at the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute in Giudecca erred by the government of Venice for the end of the plague of 1631, from then on every third Saturday of July the Feast of the Redeemer is celebrated until today.


The Venetian people prepare the tables along the foundations, with homemade dishes with gastronomic specialties of the Venetian tradition bovoeti with garlic and parsley, sardines in saor, bacala 'creamed with polenta, and all washed down with good prosecco wine, as is tradition towards half night they serve pasta and beans that looks more like a cold pasta than a hot soup according to the Venetian tradition.


Venetian hospitality is so felt that

often strangers are invited to take part in them at their table or offer a slice of watermelon.

Who comes from outside and

has no table useful advice

cheap and traditions

The feast is celebrated in particular also in the San Marco basin around the floats where fireworks are mounted to take the best seats already in the early hours of the afternoon gathering slowly with all kinds of floating vehicles from the small boat to the sailboat with so much disco.


To book the boat for an event here is a link While the prestigious hotels compete with excellent menus and

cram in as many tables as possible on their roof terrace to accommodate anyone willing to pay mind-boggling figures for the most anticipated and most famous event in the world.


For those arriving from outside Venice shortly before the movable bridge opens around 7.00 pm

they begin to take place in advance to be able to admire the event given that the foundations are those who organize themselves with cooler bags and pillows and arrive 4 hours earlier, those arriving at last moment and stay with your back against a wall to keep your place, the heat and the long wait can warm the spirits.


iIf, on the other hand, you do not like

the crowd and want to enjoy the fires from afar, you can take your picnic lunch and a mat to lay out on the lawn of Parco delle Rimembranze on the island of Sant'Elena.
