Visiting Venice for Christmas markets?
First thing’s first: it’s important to note that if you’re looking for the typical wooden chalet, mulled wine, and ultra-cozy Christmas market vibes popular in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and France, you won’t really find them here.
But that doesn’t mean visiting Venice for Christmas is a bad idea. Quite the opposite, actually! Winter visits mean fewer crowds, and the city comes alive with beautiful illuminations all around. There’s also a great deal of impressive nativity scenes, which are popular with visitors.
So, if you’re planning your own Venetian Christmas adventure and are curious what the Venice Christmas Market scene is like, then we’re here to help.
Read on for an overview of Venice Christmas Market scene, with official dates, hotel recommendations, and locations.
