by sockii

Venice, Italy: one of the most beautiful and unique places in all of the world. Here you can see some delightful Christmas ornaments which celebrate the unique sites of Venice.

Perhaps my favorite place in the entire world is Venice, Italy. The unique and romantic city built upon water is like no other destination to visit: the history, the art, the architecture, the amazing food!

So this year, I started thinking about how I would love to have some ornaments for my Christmas tree celebrating this wonderful place, and started looking for choices. I was really pleased with some of the beautiful and fun ornaments I've found, so I've assembled the best of the best here for other "Italophiles" to enjoy.

You'll find beautiful glass ornaments of Venetian landmarks, photographic ornaments and more! Any of these would be great for remembering a trip taken in the past, or perhaps as a gift for someone you know who loves Venice, Italy.

"The Doge's Palace"

A beautiful glass ornament

The Doge's Palace is one of the most famous landmarks in all of Venice. It was the resident of the Doge during the Republic of Venice up until the Napoleonic Occupation in the 18th century. Today, it is one of the most popularly visited museums in all of Venice, housing important works of art by Tinteretto, Titian, Veronese and others. One can also tour through the armory and prison cells, where allegedly even Casanova was once held - and escaped!

"St. Mark's Basilica"

The most famous church in Venice

Another landmark of St. Mark's Square and pilgrimage site to many is St. Mark's Basilica, easily one of the most beautiful churches in all of Italy. Inside the church glimmers with mosaic artwork, and one can climb up to the balcony to get incredible views of the Square and the lagoon.

This is another exquisite glass ornament, this one captures the Italo-Byzantine architecture of the famous church.

"The Rialto Bridge"

No one comes to Venice and misses a chance to cross the Rialto Bridge - the oldest crossing the Grand Canal and connecting the San Marco and San Polo districts of the city. Though lined with shops today, the tourism does little to diminish its beauty and impact on visitors seeing it for the first time.

Hand-decorated and individually gift box, this is a charming recreation of the classic Venetian landmark.

I had the wonderful experience of vacationing in Venice in 2013. It was the most amazing thing - I did not want to come home. The one thing I buy for myself when traveling is an ornament. It makes decorating the tree a walk down memory lane for so many trips over the years. Great article!
