Venice for the Holidays: Markets, Concerts and Masses

Our friend Nan McElroy, author of Italy, Instructions for Use (hint: makes a terrific stocking stuffer!) is lucky to live in Venice year-round but like most of us believes the holidays are a particularly special time of year in La Serenissima. There are Christmas markets, a special glass exhibition on the island of Murano, classical music concerts, celebrations in Piazza San Marco, Midnight Mass at Basilica San Marco and much more. Nan wrote an insider’s guide to all the fun for the December/January issue of Dream of Italy and we’ve made it a free access article for all to read!
