Being in Italy during Christmas most certainly indicates to me that you are already a person who likes to make life interesting. During the holidays some families and couples like to get away from it all to spend time in a deeply cultural and historic City which invigorates are spirits and deepens the experience of our time together. Coming together in the centre of Venice seems like an already highest point to our Christmas Day Tour. But there is so much more. San Marco, Rialto, the Jewish quarter the bridge of Sorrows and so so much more. This journey through the heart of Venice sets the tone for any other tours you might experience during the holidays. With a literally overwhelming wealth of history and jaw dropping tales we use Christmas Day to reveal it all. My local guides are proper characters who know and love Venice so you and the kids won’t be left short of a few stories and unusual facts to tell.
