Fireworks in San Marco square


Admire the fireworks in San Marcos Square

Saint Mark's Square is not only a must to visit Venice, but it is also the nerve centre of the New Year's Eve party in the city.

Once you've had dinner, we advise you to go to the square, where from 9:00 p.m. there is usually a large stage where artists liven up the atmosphere with their music.


The showstopper of the New Year's party in Venice (or New Year's Eve) is the firework spectacle, with the lights reflected in the waters of the lagoon and in the eyes of thousands of people who have come to admire them.

 Imagine one of the most beautiful squares in the world illuminated by the light of fireworks... Safe to say there is no better way to start the New Year’s.


The custom in Venice for New Year's Eve is to go to Saint Mark's Square to welcome the new year.

People come before the bell in groups of family or friends and wear Venetian masks on their faces and bottles to toast the new year.


It is also nice to toast with the people who are in the square, since you can meet people from all over the world, so the atmosphere is very livley, fun and multicultural. You can start the year by making friends!

At 12, the chimes are heard from the bell tower of San Marco, and... Happy New Year!  At that moment the square lights up under the lights of the fireworks, it is a truly magical moment.

In the years 2020 and 2021, these events were cancelled due to Covid, so this New Year's Eve in Venice 2022 will be phenomenal!


Can you imagine enjoyig the beuty of the New Year's Eve Fireworks seen from a boat in front of San Marco or from the Plaza among thousands of people of all nationalities?
