What to Do at Christmas and New Year in Venice
Christmas and New Year are undoubtedly a great period to live Venice as true Venetians. In fact, the city is not so crowded with visitors as in other times of the year, residents gather and enjoy places and squares and all Christmas events in full Venetian tradition.
The traditional Christmas time events in Venice are: the typical boat races on the Grand Canal such as the ‘Regata dei Babbi Natale’ (Santa Claus Regatta), on Sunday December 16, 2018, and the ‘Regata delle Befane‘ (on Epiphany’s day) Sunday January 6, 2018.
Campo San Polo, one of the widest squares in Venice, traditionally becomes an ice skating ring for children … but also for adults, throughout the Christmas holiday season and up to the next Carnival.
Finally, the traditional New Year’s Eve toast with fireworks in St. Mark’s Square on the evening of December 31st.
Many Christmas markets alla over the city, sparkling boutiques and shops and all main museums always open with high level art exhibitions.
