Ahh, Italia. What a country, what an amazing variety of things to do. Ski the Dolomites, get lost in the Tuscan countryside, shop ‘til you drop in Milan, sunbathe in Sicily, glide along the canals of Venice, follow ferraris in Monza, marvel at the architecture in Rome, slurp spaghetti in Bologna… need we go anywhere else?
“The Redentore Festival” in Venice, takes place on the 3rd weekend in July. The religious celebrations are held on Sunday. It’s the night before when there is a great party with feasting, followed by fireworks at around 11:30pm and the weekend finishes with a gondola regatta. The Redentore is still an authentically local event, and is very important to the people of Venice. The lagoon shore and all Venice’s roof terraces are packed for the big event, the firework display!
