Following the tradition, on the third Sunday of July Venice celebrates the famous Festa del Redentore, to commemorate the end of the plague of 1575-1577.
The most exciting event actually takes place on Saturday evening (this year Saturday July 16th) when, usually starting at 11:30 pm, it is possible to admire an extraordinary fireworks display in the San Marco Basin. The Venetians, while waiting for the fireworks, usually dine together on a boat, on the terraces and “altane” of the Venetian palaces or on the banks where long tables are set up.
Just to make you spend an evening full of tradition, on Saturday July 16th we offer you a special 2022 Redentore dinner at our restaurant.
The 2022 Redentore Menu
For the Festa del Redentore 2022 you can choose between two options: the first at 7 pm if you wish to enjoy the magic of the evening around the city and a second one at 9.15pm for those who prefer, after dinner, to move towards the San Marco square to enjoy the fireworks in the midst of the people or to move to the Hotel Saturnia & International’s terrace*.
You can choose your favorite dishes from our à la carte menu or taste the "2022 Redentore dinner" created by the Chef and his team for the occasion at the price of € 115 with VAT, service and drinks included.
