Maybe it was Festa del Redentore? I read it is the oldest continuously celebrated date on the Venetian calendar. Every July, a pontoon bridge is built across the canal that separates the Giudecca from Venice proper, so people can make the pilgrimage to the church. And on Saturday night (this year it was July 14th), Boats of every shape and size gather in the lagoon between St Mark’s, San Giorgio, the Punta della Dogana and the Giudecca, each holding merry-makers supplied with food and drink. They say there was the 40 minutes firework afterwards!
Does anyone know what is going on today? All the boats sitting. Some celebration?
There is a fantastic lightning storm in the sky, but no way to catch it in the picture!
Assistindo de camarote, essa linda paisagem de Veneza. Estive em dez17, Saudações do BRASIL.
Weather there looks so cold and wet. Its winter now in NZ and today was lovely and sunny but with a cold wind. Temp about 17c.
Its lovely watching the big passenger ships going out
No more Grand Canal? That was my favorite because it included sound. Hope it returns. There used to be more Venice webcams-miss them.
Hows the weather in New Zealand Muffin??
Awesome watching all the activity from New Zealand
It is so hard to believe that it is snowing in Venice. I have visited twice in autumn with very hot temperatures.
A snowy Venice
A beautiful sight is the snowy Venice, snow-covered gondolas. -2 C :(2/28/18 06.52
I love watching the boats.
It's really busy there today with hundreds of people walking, not all going on ferries.
