Venice at Christmas ?
Christmas in Venice is pretty quiet and cold.
Don't expect much decorations and such, still you will be able to find places open to eat or drink. There could be a Christmas market in Campo San Stefano and some ice skating in Campo San Polo, still there is no available information yet.
Venice wouldn't be a first choice for Christmas, but since apparently you will be around it will be nice to spend a few days in Venice.
Here is some information i gathered for you:
- CHRISTMAS CONCERT AT ST. MARK'S BASILICA - On 17 and 18 December 2018, starting at 8pm.
- THE SWAN LAKE AT TEATRO GOLDONI - Only on 26 December, at 5pm and 8.30pm
- I Musici Veneziani: 18th century costumed orchestra 27 - 30 December 2018 at Scuola Grande di San Teodoro (Campo San Salvador) – San Marco
I will update here if i find something more ...
I realize that Venice is not the ideal place to be during Christmas, still we will be very near to the city, so i would like to spend a couple of days.
What worries me is we will be able to find something to eat on 26th of December ?
Also how about the museums ? Are they closed during that period ?
