(Please click here for my blog post with some infos on this very traditional Venetian festivity.)

The city has decided that the number of visitors will be limited for Redeemer’s Day.

Places to stand or sit on the public “rive” (walkway next to the water) must be booked beforehand here and (The portal will be activated on the 13th July in the morning.)

Also all those who will visit Redentore with their private boat will have to book their spot online too on the same websites.

All visitors who assist the Redentore festivity on the “rive” and by boat will need a “Green Pass” to attend the event, means: a vaccination certificate, a certificate that confirms recovery from Covid (not more than 6 months ago) or an antigenic test (not older than 48 hours).

There will be different Covid-test-stations around the city for the antigenic test: You can find more infos on the website of the city of Venice (above).

In case you absolutely don’t have a clue, what you coud do, where you could go, and how to celebrate Redeemer’s Day in Venice, don’t worry, I will give you some indications in this blog post.
