Christmas Market in Venice

mercatinonatale3Also this year the city of Venice propose the Christmas Market. In the historical centre, in “ Campo S. Stefano “, from early days of December until the Christmas Eve, will be staged the event “Christmas in the Lagoon” and, thanks to the effort of the Artisans Association, there will be installed 30 wooden houses, a fine reproduction of the ones used in the northern Europe countries.

All around the square it is possible to find lots of quality artisan products, such as pottery, dolls, gifts and gifts for furniture, candles and Christmas ornaments, jewellery, Murano glass , watercolours, masks, handmade soaps, sweets made entirely by hand and with high quality ingredients, all this to create a great  Christmas  atmosphere and to buy gift without spending a fortune.

The idea of this initiative, proposed by the Artisan association, was born not only to offer a sampling of quality artisan products, but also to create a meeting place where tourists and Venetians can taste local cuisine specialties , and celebrating the festivity.

  3. Hi, we just went to Venice today specifically to go to this Christmas Market and the Campo was EMPTY. Absolutely nothing was there. Why is this being advertised if it isn’t happening??

  6. Hi Everybody!
    I’m sorry for the late reply.
    Unfortunately also this year the Christmas Market has not been held. Honestly I don’t know why!
    This is very sad.

    I’m sorry but we didn’t know in advance that they would have not been there. The anly thing that we can do is to give you the information that the city hall give us. And they didn’t sent any amendment on the initial Christmas Market’s schedule.

    Well, I hope that you enjoyed Venice even if there weren’t any market!

    Merry Christmas to you all!!!

    Roberto
