Are you planning your Christmas holidays in Venice? This city offers many attractions and events, particularly during the Christmas period. If you love art, fashion and photography we recommend some exhibitions you should absolutely visit.

Christmas time in Venice is rich with events of all kinds. If you are planning your trip to the lagoon city, perhaps you will have trouble deciding which itineraries to follow, palaces to explore and exhibitions to visit. I here propose a selection of the three best art, photography and fashion shows.

Three exhibitions to visit in Venice: Tintoretto 1519-1594

In the frame of the Doge’s apartments in Palazzo Ducale, the Civic Museums of Venice, in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, present a selection of the best works by the great Venetian artist Jacopo Robusti. On the occasion of the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of Tintoretto, 50 paintings and 20 original drawings from collections all over the world are displayed!

If you’ve never heard of Tintoretto, you only need to know that he was one of the leading exponents of the sixteenth-century Venetian painting. The strength of his painting earned him the nickname “the terrible”. Tip: if you’ve visited this exhibition and you liked it, don’t miss the huge Tintoretto sheets at the Scuola Grande di San Rocco!


Three exhibitions to visit in Venice: Epoca Fiorucci

The location of this exhibition is between Campo San Giacomo dell’Orio and the Rialto Bridge, halfway between two unmissable destinations.

Fashion industry is an Italian excellence recognized throughout the world, if this fascinates you don’t miss the exhibition that celebrates the creative inspiration of Elio Fiorucci and his fashion house.

Until January 6th in Cà Pesaro it is possible to relive the career of the famous designer through clothes, objects and posters signed by Elio Fiorucci.

Cà Pesaro, moreover, offers an incredible view of the Grand Canal, an opportunity to observe the city from another point of view.



Three exhibitions to visit in Venice: Willy Ronis. Photographs 1934-1998


In one of the less visited but not less evocative areas, the Giudecca is home to the Casa dei Tre Oci. This building is a fine example of early twentieth century architecture and for some years has become the location of exhibitions of photographers of global importance. Until January 6th the building will host the exhibition dedicated to Willy Rollins in which 120 vintage photographs are exhibited, of which a dozen dedicated to Venice.
