How about spending this Christmas in Venice? It is cold, uncrowded and very magical…yes magical. This time, of the year, is a fantastic time to visit. You’ll quickly appreciate the luxury of discovering art and architecture undisturbed, not to mention sensing the spirit and beauty of La Serenissima’s elegant traditions.
Behold the already gorgeous ornate architecture, canals and piazzas of Venice lit up with Christmas decorations.
Enjoy gliding through the Grand Canal, with your own private accordion and singer to serenade you while soaking up the romance and grandeur of Venice and its holiday decorations on a private gondola ride!
Christmas is the perfect time for art-lovers heading to Venice to enjoy centuries-old churches and masterpieces without the large crowd.
Venice is also a wonderful city for Christmas shopping, thanks to its unique handmade gifts like glass ornaments and lace decorations. Check out Campo San Polo’s small Christmas market, with its stands of local treasures and ice skating rink!
With Carnival right around the corner, you’ll also find lots of decorative masks at the market. For a truly unforgettable shopping experience, we recommend a day trip to the nearby island of Murano for the Natale di Vetro (Christmas of Glass) celebration, with lots of great glass gift options.
A splendor of choice awaits you at Christmas in Venice!
