Discover Tuscany during Christmas

There is no better idea than to take advantage of the Christmas holidays for a magical stay to discover Tuscany.

During the holidays all the cities of this beautiful region offer magical moments of fun or Christmas shopping.

In Florence, for example, during the Christmas holidays two sumptuous ice rinks are set up. The first is at the parterre of Piazza della Libertà and the second at the Toscana Winter Park, near the Obihall.

At the Toscana Winter Park there are also many other winter funs, such as the ski slope and a snow tubing.

For those who love spending Christmas doing fitness can also take advantage of the Christmas Marathon that takes place in Orbetello every 11 December.

The best places in Tuscany to be visited this Christmas

If you are planning to spend Christmas in Tuscany you can count on a full calendar of events and initiatives throughout the region.

Here are the best places in Tuscany to be visited this Christmas!

Christmas market in Siena

In Siena, in the first days of December, Piazza del Campo is filled every year with stands and stalls for the usual medieval market. Among the stalls, the exhibitors invite passers-by to taste their products.

Tyrolean market of Arezzo

In Arezzo there is the Tyrolean market where, strolling through the magnificent Renaissance architecture, it will be possible to experience a real glimpse of Tirolo, with small wooden houses selling Christmas decorations and typical local handicrafts.

German market in Florence

The beautiful Florence celebrates Christmas with the German Christmas Market, the famous “Weihnachtsmarkt“. It is a real corner of Germany in Piazza Santa Croce, where you can taste pork knuckle and sauerkraut in a truly charming atmosphere.

The Christmas cribs in Tuscany

During the holidays an unmissable attraction are the famous nativity scenes in Tuscany.

Just think of the crib of Cerreto Guidi that stretches for 12 meters and is a single large crochet that 50 ladies have made with incredible patience in years of work.

The amazement instead overwhelms us at the sight of the crib of Petroio, a town not far from Vinci, where the great Leonardo was born. In Petroio the crib is completely mechanized and occupies an entire hill.

The magical Christmas atmosphere also envelops the Mugello with the beautiful mechanical nativity scene in Borgo San Lorenzo, the self-propelled nativity scene in Marradi and the living nativity scene in Palazzuolo.

In our opinion these are the best places in Tuscany to be visited this Christmas. The surprises you know never end and to make your stay in Tuscany really special we suggest you to taste the exquisite typical cuisine.

To fully experience the Christmas atmosphere in Tuscany we are waiting for you at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort!
