Shutterstock 93566209 Rialto Bridge And Gondolas In Venice

Experience the magic of timeless Venice at Christmas. The weather may be grey but with twinkling colourful lights, Christmas markets and plenty of local festive cheer we’ll be sure to experience a warm welcome in this enchanting city.

The Rialto Bridge at Night, Venice. Italy

One of the best places to spend Christmas in Italy is Venice. With a week to explore and a spattering of lovely inclusions over the festive period, our new Italian Christmas tour has a traditional feel yet offers something for everyone.

Guided Tours

Based right near beautiful St Mark’s Square we spend time sightseeing and exploring the historical centre of Venice including the Basilica of San Marco with its opulent mosaics, wealth of statues and walls clad in marble as well as the Doge’s Palace. A museum since 1923, the palace was once the residence of the Doge of Venice. Our second walking tour showcases the typical quarters of the city with their beautiful lanes and bridges. Discover La Fenice, Scala del Bovolo as well as Il Rialto; the oldest of four bridges spanning the Grand Canal.


Also known as Piccola Roma (little Rome), the enchanting city of Verona straddling the Adige river in northern Italy has so much to offer. With a day tip included by train, the city is awash with squares, bridges and the odd creative masterpiece, Verona has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. December sees the entrance to the city illuminated by hundreds of lights which flow into the streets of the centre. Piazza dei Signori plays host to the exquisite ‘Christkindlmarkt’ and its wooden huts offering traditional crafts and decorations, gifts and of course delicious local specialties and desserts.


Padua is a picturesque city with arcaded streets that lead into open squares and is home to one of the oldest universities in Europe. Take the train out of Venice and discover the Scrovegni Chapel with its beautiful frescoes by Giotto as well as the local markets. Open every day except Sunday, we can get a real taster of life with friendly locals and vendors.

Christmas Market

Soak up the atmosphere of the season with a visit to one the Christmas markets, stroll the streets and stop at a local café for a hotel chocolate or take in one of the many delightful Christmas concerts held throughout the city. It is sure to be a Christmas to remember.
