Best Christmas Market close to Venice?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are heading out Nov 27th - Dec. 2nd and flying into Venice. Last year we stumbled upon an amazing little Christmas Market in Bratislava and it was the highlight of our trip.

Does anyone have any suggestions for cities close enough to Venice for a day/overnight trip that have some interesting markets? We're fine with renting a car, so something unique and off the beaten path (but still acceptable for tourists with minimal Italian) would be more up our alley, but we're definitely open to suggestions. Ice skating is a bonus! ;)

Also, any idea how busy some of the bigger markets in Milan/Florence/Verona would be? We liked Vienna, but the markets there were so commercialized and/or crowded that it really took away from some of the magic.
