There are many Christmas markets to choose from, taking place in December.
In the North, there are Turin and the Aosta Valley, where you can experience the magic of Christmas thanks to many events and stands full of artisan products and food delights.
You may also choose South Tyrol, at the foot of the Dolomites, with its traditional markets, a breath-taking landscape and the warmth of its people. A quick getaway to a world that waits in anticipation for the most wonderful time of the year. If you fancy refined food you must go to Parma, in the heart of Emilia, where you will find a series of excellent culinary products: parmesan cheese, raw ham, culatello and balsamic vinegar. Here you can stock up on gifts and food to be enjoyed all year round.
Last but not least, discover the great Christmas tradition of the South, with its cribs and traditional Christmas dishes. If you choose Naples, roam the streets of the old city centre and go to San Gregorio Armeno, where skilled artisans still make the characters for the crib with their own hands. And of course, do not forget to treat yourself to pizza, calzoni, sfogliatelle and roccocò.
