Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
A state of mind that involves joy, lightheartedness and resourcefulness. And if Christmas is a state of mind, Venice is its highest expression. From the weeks leading up to the great event, like a dogaressa mirroring herself in the lagoon, Venice dresses up and puts on its best jewels. The canals are adorned with thousands of lights, which run through the buildings and terraces, flow like water, bend and multiply, dance in extravagant shapes. The shop windows, like eyes that dot the streets, are filled with sweets and delicacies. And the city breathes. It throbs. It lives. And our hotel is also festively decorated: lights, sprigs of mistletoe and multicolored balls dot the rooms!

Sweets and traditions to taste
The pandoro is a typical dessert from Veneto that is usually eaten during the Christmas holidays. Its name is more than ever apt: golden, soft, precious inside, the pandoro knows how to surprise even in its simplicity. At the Rosa Salva pastry shop, in Venice since 1879, you can taste a truly noteworthy pandoro! Furthermore, booking three nights during the month of December with the discount code CHRISTMAS, you will enjoy a traditional Venetian dinner for free in one of the best restaurants in the city: the Campo Santa Maria Formosa restaurant. For other Christmas delicacies, we recommend you to read our article dedicated to the Venetian Christmas Food.
If you love classical music and art in general, Venice offers splendid Christmas concerts, under the richly frescoed ceilings of its theaters: the Goldoni theater and the Fenice. Tickets usually sell out quickly, but with the right timing you can get an unforgettable night. The musical notes blend with the notes of a city that seems to emerge from the melodies of the violins: everything in Venice is sublimated into music. The water that soothes the buildings, the ticking of the footsteps in an uncrowded little square, the boats gliding through the canals.
There cannot be any Christmas without gifts, whether they are small or large, sumptuous or emotional, traditional or avant-garde. And Venice it is perfect, with its shops and boutiques, for Christmas shopping. From international boutiques, whose name alone is enough to make the air vibrate, to the workshops of the Masters of Fire that display hundreds of blown glass figurines: everyone can fulfill their wishes here. A visit to the Fondaco dei Tedeschi is a must, since it is a five-minute walk from our hotel: this is the paradise of luxury and refinement, hidden between the walls of a sumptuous historic building. Its Christmas arrangements are well known, and they surprise and fascinate every year.
