Christmas markets in Tuscany

The events not to be missed

The Christmas period is fast approaching and you can not miss a visit to one of the Christmas markets in Tuscany to do some shopping and fully enter the magical and evocative atmosphere of this period.

So not only for kids, but even if you're already older, a stroll through one of Tuscany's Christmas markets, with charming typical wooden houses decorated with fir twigs and glittering lights, is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a hot chocolate with whipped cream or other regional gourmet dishes, while listening to traditional Christmas carols.

Here is a list of some of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Tuscany that we recommend you visit.
