Sharing: La Venessiana’s “Postcard from Venice”

I hope you already subscribe to La Venessiana’s Postcard from Venice blog. It’s delightfully full of recipes, images, holidays, history, and so many other wonderful things from Venice. Her latest issue has just come out, and it features some lovely videos of Venice at Christmas time. I’ll share two of them here, but you should visit La Venessiana’s site to see everything she has to offer, including a menu for the Hotel Monaco, video of the Christmas concert, and a virtual walk around the city at holiday time. (I can’t wait to make a cup of hot chocolate and watch this one at leisure!)

Check out this video that shows a life sized creche built on the water at the island of Burano. I haven’t seen anything quite like it and wish I could see it in person!

And here you can see the magnificent, luminous Christmas tree in the Piazza San Marco in all its golden glory. I love how twinkly it is.

    Loved the Nativity scene in the lagoon. So appropriate for Venice. Marry Christmas.
