New Year’s Eve in Venice: Unique Traditions and Meanings


Here we are at the magical Eve:  the arrival of a New Year.

We will leave the old year behind and welcome the New Year full of hopes and expectations, celebrating romantically or euphorically.


We exorcise the moment of transition: sharing a conviviality mood to the rhythm of perlage.


Hopes and good wishes color every greeting exchanged in the streets of Venice.

Venice, by its conformation, predisposes to the meeting. The voices of the Venetians resound among the festively lit streets, wishing each other the best for the year to come, while the eyes of the tourists are enchanted as they grasp the unique traditions and meanings of the Venetian style rituals.

Experiencing Venice is always magical, but being here for New Year’s Eve is certainly, in a lifetime, a unique and unmissable time.

The restaurants and taverns are so many, and the offer is so wide, that suggesting some is difficult.
