Christmas Markets in Tuscany

Christmas Markets in Tuscany – inspired by the Trip 

We just returned from a wonderful visit to Italy to find new #Villas in Tuscany, as well as apartments in Rome and Florence, already the Christmas decorations were popping up in the shops of Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Arezzo to name a few we saw. We have put together a list for you of wonderful Christmas markets in Tuscany

In Florence, the Weihnachtsmarkt, a German word that means Christmas market, has come to Santa Croce Square from the #ChristkindlMarkt of  Heidelberg .

This Christmas market in Florence has stands selling decorations for Christmas trees and homes, Christmas cakes such as Stollen accompanied by the the wonderful warm Glühwein (mulled wine); (recipe #stollen, #gluhwein next post) visitors will enjoy not only Christmas food but also German specialties (especially wurst and sauerkraut) at Santa Croce Square from the 27th of November to the 19th of December.

The Christmas version of the Lungoungiorno artisan market will take place at the SAM space of the Old Convent on the 8th  of December. Not to be missed is also the traditional Christmas market of the Italian Red Cross that will be held from the 29th of November to the 1st  of December at Obihall.

Good purposes for the FILE Christmas Market (FILE is the Italian Foundation for Alleviating Pain) from the 6 to 8 December.

If you are Exploring the rest of the region around Florence, not that in Scandicci there is a Christmas market  on December 21 and 22. On the hill of Fiesole a handicraft Christmas market is on December 15.
