THE MAGICAL ATMOSPHERE OF THE LAGOON
In December, Venice delights locals and tourists with its magical, intimate atmosphere. The twinkling fairy lights of its mist-shrouded ‘calli' are reflected in the waters of its canals, making this city even more romantic.
On the contrary, the dazzle and sparkle of lights inside its ‘palazzi' are simply gorgeous and can be enjoyed during a festive concert at the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro (below) or while shopping at T Fondaco dei Tedeschi (below right). For those wishing to immerse themselves in local traditions, an absolute ‘must' is a visit to the Chiesa della Salute whose aisle is strewn with a sumptuous carpet of flowers.
