Return to Fusina at the end of the fireworks.

The option 2 does not include the navigation from Fusina to Venice. You are required to show up directly at the restaurant Ai Campi Sportivi to have dinner.

The Ai Campi Sportivi restaurant, located at Sacca Fisola, is run by the non-profit organization Il Cerchio... The restaurant staff boasts a mixed cultural background and varied experience, which every day is made available to guests along with great professionalism and courtesy! The menu offered for the Redentore evening is strictly based on Venetian specialty recipes: you can taste Bovoleti (small boiled snails seasoned with garlic and parsley) and sardines in saor (grilled sardines with caramelised onion) and then continue with cod fish and polenta, octopus salad, fish lasagne, sea bass with potato crust and desert. For the younger ones pasta with meat sauce, cotoletta alla milanese (similar to Wiener schnitzel) with chips and desert. Drinks are not included and will be paid for at the end of the dinner.

The Island of Sacca Fisola is a very captivating part of the island of Giudecca untouched by mass tourism ... Taking a walk here in the evening of the Redentore means diving into the most authentic spirit of the celebration, among great preparations along the banks and lively outdoor dinners.

At the end of the dinner you will board the boat again and, after a short stretch of navigation, you will moor in St. Mark's Basin at the jetty reserved at the Hotel Danieli: a perfect location to admire both the fireworks seemingly originating in the water and those shooting into the sky that light up the whole city.

Surrounded by other boats, you will fully take in the excitement of this celebration, highly popular with tourists but also very much felt by Venetians as well who every year take part it on small traditional boats decorated with lights and festoons. Plunged in the festive ambience that pervades Venice during the Redentore you will experience firs-hand the emotions and the authenticity of this ancient traditional festival, which commemorates the end of the terrible plague that decimated the population of Venice during the 16th century.
