These are the four best things to do during the holidays in Naples.

Get ready to celebrate the holidays with these four amazing wintertime events. Naples knows how to do the holidays right, so spread the holiday cheer and take your winter guests around the city to enjoy holiday lights, performances, Christmas events, and more. 

1. Fifth Avenue South

The city of Naples comes together to celebrate the holidays on Fifth Avenue South. Here, there are a variety of events that allow you to gather and enjoy wintertime cheer. Both Christmas and New Year’s Eve have scheduled events on Fifth Avenue South. If you aren’t able to make it on the day of the events, still stop by. The area is lit up and glowing with holiday lights. 

This is also the trendiest area in Naples, known for dining, shopping, and downtown entertainment. Treat your holiday guests to a night on the town by visiting Fifth Avenue South and all its holiday charm.

2. Christmas at Palm Cottage

This year, celebrate Christmas at Palm Cottage in Old Naples. This property is part of the Naples Historical Society, and it is all decked out for the holidays. Sleigh bells, twinkling lights, decorated trees, and Santa Claus are all part of the Palm Cottage Christmas time celebration.

Palm Cottage will be celebrating the season throughout the month of December for you and all your holiday guests to enjoy. For more information on Christmas at Palm Cottage and their original Ten Days of Christmas event, click here.

3. Artis—Naples

Throughout the holiday season, Artis—Naples is showing a variety of wintertime favorites. For a classy Christmas performance, come to Artis—Naples to enjoy The Sound of Music, The Nutcracker Ballet, or the Naples Philharmonic.

4. The Ritz-Carlton Naples 

The Ritz-Carlton of Naples invites you to bask in the holiday season. The luxury hotel is offering a variety of events for the entire community to join together and enjoy wintertime celebrations as one. Our favorite Ritz-Carlton tradition is the holiday gingerbread house. The Ritz-Carlton’s expert pastry team works diligently to construct a giant, twelve-foot-tall gingerbread house. This creation remains in the hotel lobby throughout December for everyone to enjoy.

Plus, the resort offers a variety of amenities for you and your holiday guests. Get pampered at the spa, enjoy a teddy bear tea, dine at the children’s buffet, taste a special wintertime menu, or ring in the New Year all at the Ritz this holiday season.


We’re wishing you happy holidays this year in Naples! Be sure to enjoy all of these holiday favorites, and spread the holiday cheer to your guests this wintertime. And, if you’re in the market for a new home this Christmas, give us a ring. We’d be happy to set you up with a new property in the new year.
