Discovering Venice

Some tips and information to live Venice as insiders

Discovering Venice

Christmas holidays have just passed, some say that mid-January is the "blue period" because of that sort of melancholy coming after the festive time, during the cold winter days... the best way to get over it is to think of the next holidays and start planning your stay!

You won't have to wait too long, as Venice Carnival is on its way and it will start on Saturday, the 4th of February, with a beautiful parade by night on the Grand Canal, to officially open the celebration!

Christmas is coming to Venice! Feel the festy vibe and enjoy this joyful holiday among the canals! Saint-Mark's square has a particular and unique charm with its festively lit arches and the Christmas tree, and you can feel the holiday atmosphere all around!

You can ice-skate at campo San Polo, enjoy the Christmas markets at campo San Maurizio and the advent concerts at San Trovaso church.

October in Venice is offering mild and sunny weather, ideal to walk around and get the most of a day-time tour: the days are still long enough to be able to hang around all day long!

This week is offering an interesting and unusual cultural event: an exhibition at Confucio Institute in Venice, in Dorsoduro 3911, displaying beautiful pictures of the Suzhou's classic gardens, part of UNESCO heritage.

July in Venice keeps on offering plenty of unique and special events!

We at Luxrest Venice always keep an eye on interesting events and activities, find unusual sites or initiatives and help you discover some more about Venice history and local daily life.

Summer is coming in Venice and it's bringing plenty of activities and things to see! Let's start with a traditional and much appreciated initiative: #DomenicalMuseo where all state museums are open for free on Sunday. 

In Venice, it means that you can visit the monumental rooms of the Marciana National Library and the National Archaeological Museum on June 5th, from 10 am to 6 pm, with free admission!

May has just arrived and with that, together with a lovely sun and a fresh breeze, we have new, lighter rules concerning covid-19 in Venice and in Italy. May it be the start for a new and simpler life!

After a one-year hiatus (and a previous, sudden interruption) due to the pandemic, Venice carnival is about to start again! It will be a somehow limited edition, in order to avoid risk of gatherings, but still, we're very pleased to announce that the spirit of the carnival will float through Venice! 

Happy New Year from all of us at Luxrest Venice! Is there a better way of starting the new year than planning a new stay in Venice? Let's get started with the list of the main events in 2022, pick up your favourite one and book an apartment with us for your stay!
