The Festivals of Venice and a River Po Cruise – the Perfect Combination!

Lovers of the beautiful city of Venice will know that its festivals are world-famous and this year is no exception for people wishing to be there to soak up the atmosphere.

There are festivals like the Festa del Redentore July 19 & 20 near St Mark’s Square, where people walk across the Grand Canal on a floating bridge of barges for good luck, followed by an amazing fireworks display over the lagoon; or the Venice International Film Festival, an 11 day event starting in late August that takes place along the sea-facing Lido Esplanade.
