Venice, Veneto

LIDO BEACH

On the twelve kilometers of the length of the island one can admire golden beaches in which to relax on breezy summer days. The Lido is easily reachable using public transportation that regularly leaves Tessera, Malamocco, Cavallino, Treporti and Venice itself. Once you get there it will be exciting to start on a quest to discover Lido's many stylish hotels in Liberty like the “Des Bains “(The oldest in the island; amongst its famous guests Thomas Mann set at the Hotel his famous novel "Dead in Venice") or the Hotel Excelsior that binds together a strong neoclassic style with the typical oriental one by which Venice has been influenced over the centuries. The Excelsior is today mostly occupied by actors and directors that during the Venice Film Festival flood the island. In the vicinity of the Excelsior and close to the “Palazzo del Cinema”, the Casino offers the possibility to try one's luck at the green tables or slot machines whilst at the far end of the island, in Malamocco, it is possible to play golf in a peaceful and unusual environment. The Lido, however, attracts also for its less known reality, for its gardens and villas immersed in the uncontaminated nature and for all these many aspects the Lido Island is still a privileged location two steps away from the Historical Center of Venice.

CAVALLINO BEACH

The shore of the Cavallino has maintained over the years a very distinctive identity. The Cavallino is a peninsula with fifteen kilometers of beaches living in extraordinary equilibrium between the different realities of the sea and the lagoon.

A unique natural scenery, famous in all of Europe as a tourist park where the uncontaminated nature is protected in its precious heritage. Excursions by boat or by bicycle along carefully traced and equipped routes are only some of the most pleasant occasions that the Littoral of the Cavallino offers to the visitors in order to discover the infinite natural wealth that characterizes it. Leaving Cavallino one finds an infinity of characteristic typical fishermen's villages, like Ca' Savio, Ca' Vio, Treporti, Lio Grando one after the other as far as Punta Sabbioni.

TERRAFERMA (MAINLAND)

It is not only the Historic Centre of Venice that offers places of interest for the tourists loving art and culture: beyond Venice there is an entire world to be discovered, without going too far! Starting from Mestre, just on the other side of the bridge of the Libert‡ that connects Venice with the mainland one can discover a multitude of old churches, fortifications, and public squares often animated by open air markets. Throwing oneself in a long gone past it is possible to walk along the ancient street traced by the Romans that have left in the area an impressive quantity of evidences of their past settlement.

Not to be missed in the Mainland: Ferretto's Square and the Tower of Mestre, the Park of Saint Giuliano, the medieval small cities of Mirano and Noale.

RIVIERA DEL BRENTA

The appearance of aristocratic villas along the course of the Brenta River from Malcontenta to Stra, has been a phenomenon that between 1500 and 1700 has testified Venice's power and the inclination of its aristocracy to a pompous style of life. Already at the end of the 1400, to have a villa along the river, to enjoy there the beautiful season with friends and relatives or important foreign personalities, was a much sought after status. Famous architects and painters were commissioned to build or decorate the villas, name like Palladio, the Count Frigimelica, Scamozzi, Longhena, Zelotti, Giannantonio Pellegrini, Tiepolo, Guarana, Zais to mention only few of the many that left their expertise in those beautiful constructions. The visual impact of the villas with its sculptured gardens had to be strong; it had to hit the travelers with an overdose of artistic and natural beauties harmoniously blended in the architectonic complex.

Not to be missed along the Riviera of the Brenta: Villa Pisani, Villa Foscari, Villa Sagredo, the Park of Villa Belvedere.

EVENTS

SENSA (ASCENTION) May 31- June 1

As a result of the diplomatic actions carried out by the “Serenissima” ending in the peace treaty of 1177 when the Pope and the Emperor met in Venice in the day of the Ascension, the Pope awarded many privileges to the city. Amongst the many rewards that Venice obtained in this occasion the most important was the faculty to “marry the sea” as a sign of complete control and domination over the seas in which Venice was trading in. Today the grandeur of the event is less felt than in the passed centuries but it brings with it the historic remembrance and the symbolism of the “marriage with the sea”. In the day of the Ascension, the Mayor of Venice together with civilian, religious and military authorities sails from Saint Mark Square as far as the Harbour of San NicolÚ where the ritual of throwing a wedding ring in the water takes place. All the boats used for the procession are rowing. The city authorities are followed by numerous boats normally used for sport races belonging to the many rowing societies existing in Venice, the only societies in which the old rowing tradition of the “Voga veneta” is kept alive. The boats precede the historic procession where all the oars are dressed up in original costumes that represent the magnificence of the Venice of the past. After the ritual of the launch of the ring and a laurel wreath in memory of all the men perished at sea, the procession ends at the Church of Saint NicolÚ of the Lido with a solemn religious ceremony. An exciting gondola race closes the day of the Ascension.

VOGALONGA June 8

This boat race (scheduled on a Sunday in May) was born 30 years ago on an initiative of a group of Venetians who wanted to maintain the Voga (an all Venetian way of rowing in small boats with flat bottom) and the traditions of the "Serenissima" alive.

They also wanted to bring to attention to both Venetians and foreigners the problem of the damaging wave motion. The event grew bigger and bigger attracting more and more attention also from foreigners and now it is usual to count up to 1500 boats enrolled. From the morning the boats gather in the lagoon opposite Saint Mark Square facing the Doges palace; they all wait the start signal that will see them race for 30 kilometres down the Canals as long as the island of Burano in the northern lagoon to then re-enter into Venice via the Cannaregio Canal.

Over the years the event has represented an incentive for the seafaring societies to maintain an interest alive in the different rowing techniques and the manufacturing of new boats.

The Vogalonga, as a not competitive sport event, becomes also an opportunity to discover the lagoon, its habitat and breathtaking landscape.

PALIO

Il Palio is a competitive event disputed between the four Ancient Seafaring Republics (Amalfi, Genoa, Pisa and Venice) that in turn organize a boat race to celebrate the splendors and the singular vicissitudes of the four Republics, whose fleets, in the middle Ages, dominated the Mediterranean. The race is preceded by a spectacular procession, where each "Republic" recalls important episodes linked to the seafaring history of the city.

More than 400 people dressed in historic costumes with flags, trumpets, drums, horses and litters are there to start the fascinating representation that opens the race on galleons at eight rows. The event ends with the awards of the winner with a trophy representing a medieval galËa, that will be kept for an entire year to then be put up again for competition the year to come.

THE REDEEMER July 19

The Redentore is certainly one of the most felt festivities amongst Venetians. Nevertheless a festivity that draws to the city thousands of visitors there to see the awe inspiring pyrotechnic night show where for one night sky and water become one.

The third Sunday in July is the day chosen for the solemn mass presided by the Patriarch and followed by religious processions. But the most awaited moment of this festivity is the night between Saturday and Sunday: on the spectacular stage represented by the lagoon in front of Saint Mark lights and colors sprinkle behind spires, domes and the bell towers of the city. Tradition wants that all day long until sunset boats, embellished with leafy branches, colored balloons and illuminations begin to gather in the basin opposite Saint Mark and the Giudecca Canal. On board or on improvised tables everyone enjoys an abundant supper prepared with the dishes of the Venetian tradition. After the show the boats slowly start their way home or following the tradition they all go waiting for dawn at the beach of the Lido.

HISTORIC REGATTA September 7

Water is the element that mainly characterizes Venice and the Historic Regatta, one of the most spectacular festivities of the city, takes place along the city's biggest water way: the Gran Canal.

The historic procession formed mainly by fifteenth century boats is led by the Bucintoro, the boat that represent the Serenissima.

The Regata Storica recalls the brave acceptance by Caterina Cornaro, spouse of the King of Cyprus, in 1489 to renounce the throne in favor of Venice.

After the historic procession multicolor boats with dressed up gondoliers follow transporting the Doge and the Dogaressa, Caterina Cornaro, and all the highest authorities of the Venetian Magistracy, in a faithful reconstruction of the glorious past of one of the most powerful and influential Republic.

The spectators, on board boats moored along the river or comfortably seated on the floating galleries, participate passionately, with scream of encouragement towards the favorites of the race.

The fundamental stages of the historical regatta have always been the “spagheto” or “cordin”, the thread of departure at the Giardini; the “paleto”, a fix pole in the middle of the Grand Canal around which the boats turn and where one can determine quite precisely the outcome of the race; the “machina”, a floating gallery built on a barge rich with multicolor and golden carvings, place of the arrival and award.

MARY MOTHER OF HEALTH

The Festivity of The Madonna della Salute is a sincere popular religious day and the one with a lesser tourist impact. The reason for the festivity, like that one of the Redentore, is to remember the terrible plague of 1630-31. Hoping to end the plague the Doge prayed the Virgin Mary and if his prayers were to be heard and granted he would have dedicated a great church out of gratitude.

To today, the 21st of November thousand of citizens parade in front of the main altar of the imposing Basilica of the Madonna della Salute to perpetuate the gratefulness that binds the city to the Virgin Mary. In this occasion a temporary bridge made of boats is build connecting the banks of the Gran Canal from the Basilica della Salute to Santa Maria del Giglio to allow the flowing of the procession, Citizens or simply pilgrims come to homage the Madonna and lit a candle praying her to give them good health.

UP AND DOWN BRIDGES

“Su e zo per i ponti” is one of many non competitive sport contests scheduled in Venice in the good season. The march normally takes place on a Sunday in March (but the date changes every year) and it is an event cherished by Venetians and by many others from all over the world. The march starts from the “ponte della Paglia” and continue down narrow and dark alleyways, on the squares of the city, crossing nearly all the Sestieri to then reach once more Saint Mark Square.

SAN MARCO

April 25th is the festivity of Saint Mark patron of the city. Once for the occasion a procession with religious and civil authorities was held in Piazza San Marco. Today the patron is celebrated with a procession inside the Basilica. Amongst Venetians is custom to donate a "bocolo", a little red rose, to the women they love.

VENICE MARATHON

The Venice Marathon by now has conquered a place of great importance amongst the sport event of the city.

It is a sport event of international attention: it attracts every year more than 6000 participants coming from all over the world.

The marathon has the official Olympic length of 42 km and 195 meters. The route is mainly flat and it departs from Stra and it runs along the splendid Riviera of the Brenta, passing in front of the magnificent villas built by Palladio.

The participants arrive in Venice via the Ponte della Libertà that connects the city to the mainland. The contestants cross the Grand Canal on a flat bridge of boats long 160 meters made for the occasion.

The runners pass near Saint Marc Square and head towards Riva Sette Martiri, where the arrival is set in panoramic position in front of the lagoon.

THE BIENNALE

The Biennale of Venice has been for more than a century one of the most prestigious cultural institution of the world. Since its origin (1895) it has been on avant-garde in the promotion of new artistic trends, organizing international events in the contemporary arts, following a pluralistic method that has characterized its unique appeal.

The Biennale has so far received great attention for the International Film Festival, for the International Contemporary Art Exhibition and the International Architecture Exhibition. It also continues a great tradition amongst Music and Theatre Festivals and the newly conceived Ballet and Modern Dance Festival.

In the same fields of interest the Biennale promotes publishing initiatives. Thanks to ASAC, the Historic Archives of the Contemporary Arts, the Biennale looks after the conservation of the documentation on its history. The centers of the Biennale that by now hosts about 320,000 visitors each year are: the Giardini of Castello (Visual arts and Architecture), the Palace of the Cinema and the Palace of the Casino on the Lido island (Cinema), the Arsenal (Visual arts and Architecture), the Theatre alle Tese and the Teatro Piccolo dell'Arsenale (Dance, Music, Theatre).

EXPOSITIONS AND FAIRS

The international attraction that Venice exudes represents for the Veneto Region, but not only, a great source of potential value to exploit. Some exposition areas, once mere farm house, warehouses or even noble palaces today accommodate fairs, expositions and events of important economic and cultural value. Venice thanks to its originality has developed an expertise in organizing niche events on particular economic aspects and topics able to co-exist in the delicate urban reality.

Amongst the fairs and the events the most important are: The Nautical Salon (March), Venezia Immagine (April ), Venezia Suona (Venice Plays - June), The fair of Nature (July), Vitraria (September), Il Salone dei Beni e delle Attività Culturale (the Salon of Cultural Heritage and Activities - December).

HISTORIC CITIES NEAR VENICE

Treviso

Treviso still has many of the painted houses that once characterized it. Here the rivers Sile and Cagnan, as celebrated in Dante's Paradise, meet. The rivers flow in and around the historic center which is wrapped in its sixteenth century wall. The houses seem to have been built on water where the earth stole from the river one small but sufficient stretch of land. Buildings reflecting on water with their frescoed facades, weeping willows softly stretching their gentle branches on the banks of the river and long stretches of arches create an atmosphere of magical harmony and great artistic value.

In the main square called “dei Signori” an elegant line of communal palaces confer to the centre a solemn architecture of medieval taste.

Verona

What is striking about Verona is the absolute abundance of expressions of art. The history and culture concentrated in one single city is unique to this area of Italy. The Roman Empire left many impressive example of its grandeur: the Arena, the Gavi Arc, the Stone Bridge, the Door of the Borsari, the Door of the Lions and the Roman Theatre. Amongst many holy buildings a must is the Dome, the Church of San Zeno Maggiore and the Cathedral: true masterpieces of the Romanesque art. Monuments rich with sculptures and paintings amongst which the altar-piece of San Zeno by Andrea Mantegna and the altar-piece of the Assunta by the famous Tiziano. Verona city of history and art but also city of love for it became the stage of the famous Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. You can see the sign of this romantic tragedy visiting the House and the Balcony of Juliet, her tomb, and Romeo's House.

Padova

Padova hosts one of the oldest university in Europe and it was a renowned Episcopal center.

It is bathed by the Bacchiglione river and through navigable canals connected to the river Po and, through the Riviera of Brenta to the lagoon of Venice. City rich with roman, medieval and renaissance traces amongst its many tourist attractions, probably the most important is the Basilica of Sant' Antonio, place that gathered and still does national and international pilgrimages. On the square before the Basilica the “Scuola del Santo” with its frescoes of the young Tiziano deserves a visit. Other monument of great artistic interest is the “Cappella di Santa Maria Annunciata”, chapel of the Palace of the Scrovegni, where one can admire Giotto's frescoes in a perfect state of conservation. Other place to visit of great artistic and cultural interest is the Dome and the Baptistery decorated with the frescoes of Giusto de' Menabuoi. A well worth visit is the BÚ-center of the old university, with its Anatomic Theatre, the chair of Galileo, the “Magna Classroom”, the ancient courtyard or the 1545 Botanical Garden where the scientific tradition of the scholastic Padova breaths new air.

Jesolo

Fifteen kilometers of soft and fine sand with the characteristic amber color due to its dolomitic origin, stretch between the Sile and the Piave rivers. At regular intervals the piers rhythmically break the water throwing themselves into the sea and interrupting the long beach with their stony presence. The lined-up cabins at the bottom of the beach, the chessboards of the beach umbrellas organized in infinite rows and the multitude of bars materializing like mirages under the sun confer to the tourist the feeling of a well organized and perfectly equipped place.

To animate this beach town one finds a number of concerts, music festivals, catwalks, cultural events, seafaring festivity, pyrotechnic and puppet shows in the squares.
