Northern Italy during December

We are planning a trip that will include Milan, Venice and Florence during Christmas.
Can anybody tell us what to expect as far as weather, availability of sights during the holiday, etc. We love to walk and wonder whether this will be possible. Thanks.

Think I would plan on Florence and south. Venice can be very rainy and flooded during the winter and Milan will be a bit cold and is not one of my favorite destinations to start with. Tuscany and Umbria should be good. Know that Christmas is a religious holiday in Italy, not the commercial thing it is in the U.S. The Italians also celebrate Epiphany after Christmas. I don't understand your question about walking unless you mean will there be lots of snow......generally not much at lower elevations.

Kam-Thanks for the reply and the guidance. The walking referred to our love of exploring a new city as much on foot as possible. The reason for the question was that we were in Spain in November and it was frigid-not conducive to "hoofing it"
