The first edition of the “Ice cream Festival” will be held in Piazza Pazienza in San Benedetto del Tronto (Marche region, Italy). The festival will last from July 29th to July 31st, from 18.00 to midnight.
There will be over 100 flavours to taste and the whole festival will be dedicated to the good Italian home-made ice cream. As for 2012, they are already thinking of the world’s longest ice-cream for the Guinness Book of Records.
From August 26th to August 29th, instead, the city will host the event “L’Antico e le Palme” (literally “The Old and The Palms”), under the patronage of the Municipality of San Benedetto del Tronto. It is an exhibition of antiques with an outdoor market.
This is an event that will allow antique dealers and collectors of antiquities to track down rare items of all kinds dating back to the period between 1600 and 1900.
Whitout any kind of time limit, instead, you can enjoy the crystal clear seaside: the city has been awarded a Blue Flag each year since 1999. The Blue Flag is an exclusive eco-label awarded by the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) to beaches and marinas in 21 countries across Europe. It is a symbol of high environmental standards as well as good sanitary and safety facilities at the beach/marina.
Book your holidays with Caffelletto: the San Benedetto del Tronto Centro Storico B&B offers five rooms with private bathroom, TV, safe and a nice terrace.
Every year in Venice you can live the magic atmosphere of Redentore Festival.
The Redentore Festival is one of the most ancient Venetian popular festival which is held the third weekend of July remembering the end of a terrible plague in Venice. In honor of that, the Venetians built a temple on the Giudecca island, Chiesa del Redentore, designed by Palladio, which is reachable by a 330 meters bridge made of boats.
The Redentore Festival is one of the best-loved by Venetians, who, following a 400 years ritual, on saturday evening gather hundreds of boats decorated with branches and multi-colored balloons in the bay of San Marco to admire the fireworks and their reflections on the waters of the lagoon, play music, dance and celebrate the beginning of the summer holiday season for many Venetians.
More the 1500 boats gather every year the San Marco bay for the Redentore Festival and more then 3000 person watch from the shore the great midnight fireworks.
On Sunday afternoon, there is a regatta of young rowers in the Guidecca canal, followed by a regatta for seniors, and ending with a gondola regatta.
