Christmas traditions in Tuscany

Every year Tuscany celebrates Christmas with ancient traditions and events that attract visitors from all over the world.

Starting from the big illuminated tree set up in Piazza Duomo in Florence, which is lit every year on the occasion of December 8, up to the Santa Claus Factory in Pisa, the Christmas traditions in Tuscany are so many.

In Pisa we can not fail to mention also the Christmas train and the “Enchanted Station”, where
waiting for Santa Claus, children of all ages can enjoy themselves through theater shows, puppets, animated readings, creative workshops, and many other Christmas-themed activities.

One of the most famous Christmas traditions in Tuscany is that of the famous living crib of Siena, organized in the frame of the beautiful Piazza del Campo.

In Maremma instead we celebrate Christmas with evocative torchlight processions that see the entire community gathered around the fires awaiting the birth of the Savior.

But in the end, the Christmas spirit is also expressed through the glitter of the markets that offer many gift ideas and delicious Nordic food specialties.

The Christmas markets in Tuscany are literally taken by assault by thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Combining the joy of these events with the beautiful Tuscan cities of art is something truly unique that offers unforgettable week-ends.

In Tuscany there is a magical opportunity for all the children who, instead of sending their letter to Santa Claus, want to deliver it to him in person and tell him dreams, desires and hopes: the Christmas Village of Villa Mambelli in Livorno. The fantastic setting is not the result of a prepackaged set design, but of an exhibition created by the artisans of Livorno.
To accompany this incredible setting there is a beautiful Christmas market.
