Visit the Venice Festival 

On the third Sunday of July the most popular event in Venice takes place – the Festival of the Redentore. The festival itself dates back to the year 1576 and is named after the church Redentore that was designed by Palladio and resides on the island of Guidecca. Traditionally, the Venetians celebrate this day by having dinner on the Saturday night while watching an incredible display of fireworks that light up the skies over Venice for an hour or more. Venice was suffering from a terrible plague, and the Republic's senate voted to build a temple on the Guidecca Island in honour of Christ the Redeemer, and the Venetians promised to go there every year on the third Sunday of July, if the plague stopped.



Visit the Venice Film Festival

To end the summer, Venice is hosting the 75th edition of the film festival, one of the oldest and most famous festivals. It will be held at the Lido Island in the Venice Lagoon where thousands of visitors and celebrities will cram in ten days of fabulous festivities.





Visit the Venice Regatta

On the first Sunday of September the grand canal of Venice becomes a theatre for one of the greatest Venetian events – the historical regatta. Dating back to 1315 under the rule of doge Giovanni Soranzo, it starts out with colourful parades on the water, followed by the boats of the Venetian rowing club and then the women’s race of mascarete.
