The small and almost uninhabited village of Lio Piccolo, located not far from the campsite, worth well a visit.

This year the Jujube Festival will take place on September 18 on the square of Lio Piccolo. Music, food stands and entertainment for everyone will be available all day long. We suggest you to reach the festival by bike or by the shuttle service departing from the village of Saccagnana.

Thousands of fireworks will be launched simultaneously along the 13km long coastline of Cavallino-Treporti, lighting the sky with beautiful pictures reflecting on the sea and leaving all the spectators breathless. Here is the Beach on Fire, one of the most important summer events of our municipality!
The music will accompany this spectacular show, which is internationally renowned and factored into the Guinness Book of Records as the longest fireworks display in the world.
Save the date and do not miss the Beach on Fire!
The Rialto area, the center for commerce in Venice, was one of the first parts of the city to be developed.
Since the 11th century it hosts the market and starting from the 16th century, after a fire which completely destroyed it, it is made by a complex of squares and porticoes dedicated to different products:
- Erberia (fruit and vegetable market),
- Naranzeria (oranges),
- Speziali (spices) and
- Pescaria (fish).
If you are in Venice do not miss the chance to visit this market, still so loved by Venetian!
Fruits and vegetable coming from the nearby island of Sant’Erasmo, but also fresh fish of the lagoon or the Adriatic sea are sold here: a good opportunity for you to stock a rented kitchen or to prepare a cheap and healthy picnic!
Rialto fruit market
Rialto fish market is the biggest fish market in Venice: it is made up of many banquets placed under the porticoes of two buildings overlooking the Grand Canal. On a corner of one building you can see a statue representing St. Peter, the most famous fisherman of the history. It is easy to understand why the fish has always been so important for Venice: the city has been founded on the water and the fish was one of the most important nourishment for the population. For this reason, since 1173, the Republic of Venice has regulated the sale of the fish with a special edict that established the rules for trade. La Serenissima was very strict with those who sold the fish under the established measures and at Rialto market you can see also today a white marble table hung on a building showing the minimum length allowed for the sale of fish.

The best time to visit the market is during the morning, when Venetians buy everything they need to prepare the lunch. The fruit and vegetable market is open every day from 07:00 to 20:00 instead the fish market is open from 07:00 to 14:00 (not on Monday).
Do you want to know how to get to the Rialto market? It is easy! From St Mark Square follow the indications to Rialto. After a quick walk (around 10-15 minutes) you will reach the Rialto Bridge and the market. If you prefer not walking, take the ACTV waterbus (line 1) from San Marco-San Zaccaria to Rialto-Mercato (there is a waterbus about 10-15 minutes and the voyage takes you about 30 minutes).

Between 1575 and 1577 Venice was affected by the plague and more than a third of the population died. The senate decided to erect a church dedicated to Christ the Redeemer as an offering for divine help and the following year the city was declared free of disease. Year by year Venetians commemorates this event, which is still one of the most important in the city. Every year a temporary floating bridge about 300 mt long (called “Ponte Votivo”) is erected over the Giudecca Canal to connect the Zattere with the Church of Redentore and a religious procession takes place on the 3rd Sunday of July (this year July 17).
If you will visit Venice during the Redentore Festival, do not miss the great party organized on Saturday evening that ends with wonderful fireworks displayed on the lagoon. Since early in the morning Venetian people begin to decorate their boats or terraces from where they can admire the show with balloons, garlands and lights. At the sunset the lagoon in front of St. Mark Square begins to fill up with boats of all kinds and Venetians, while dining with relatives and friends, wait for the fireworks on board of them or at the restaurants facing the lagoon.
Around 11 p.m. the fireworks start and the lagoon becomes one of the most beautiful stages in the world: lights, colours and a wonderful atmosphere will surround Venice for about 45 minutes leaving everyone breathless and at the end of the fireworks, the young people of the city head off to Lido of Venice and wait for the dawn sitting on the beach or enjoying the many night-time events.
Do you want to know where to watch the fireworks even if you do not own a boat?
The best places in Venice are the Giudecca and Riva degli Schiavoni: these places will be very crowed and sometimes your view could be obstructing by moored boats, but it is worth to try to find a good place there.
If you can not go to Venice, do not give up to watch the show: go to the harbor of Punta Sabbioni (it is only 4 km far from the campsite)! From the pier you can watch the fireworks the same: maybe it will not be as to be in Venice because they will be a little far, but it is a fair compromise not to miss them.
And on Sunday? The procession to the Church of Redentore will take place in the morning and the Redentore regatta on the Giudecca Canal will close the celebration of the festival.
