Full description

Imagine spending a really magical Christmas together with your loved ones in a refined and welcoming atmosphere, enjoying food delights and good wine ... sounds perfect, don’t you think? With all this will be possible!

Christmas Eve Dinner in Venice or Christmas Day Lunch in Venice: whatever your choice, it will be an experience that you will forever keep in your heart!

In the Christmas period, Venice takes on a very special charm: palaces and bridges are infused with a new winter aura while the de-rigour Christmas lights of the Advent period are reflected on the water of the canals. Walking through the streets of the city, you will see lit up Christmas trees, markets where to buy your presents, stalls with sweet treats and ice skating rinks for your kids or friends.

Not forgetting that Venice is a city full of art and history, you could use this as an opportunity not only to visit the most important sights such as St Mark’s Basilica, the Bell Tower of the same name and the Doge’s Palace, but also lesser known places, often more mysterious.
