You can celebrate the Redentore Feast in different ways. Of course if you have a boat, we suggest you to use it and get to the basin before 7pm.
If you don’t have you own boat you can still celebrate the redentore Feast on the Jolly Roger ship at a price of 160 euros per person or at Serra dei Giardini, where a techno party will take place right after the fireworks and there will be an additional party on a boat from 3am to 10am (this is free).
Another party will be in Lido, at Nicelli airport with Altavoz + Yolo (electronic and hip hop music, from 10pm to 7am).
If you simply want to stroll around Giudecca Island, you can easily do it since the votive bridge will be open till Sunday 16th at 10pm.
