The Christmas atmosphere in Florence

Every year Christmas brings an atmosphere full of magic and celebration, irresistible for young and old.

The cities are enriched with Christmas decorations like suggestive lights, festoons, Christmas trees and nativity scenes. Lights, colors and sounds make the atmosphere really pleasant.

The Christmas atmosphere in Florence is breathed in every street of the historic center, where walking in search of gifts becomes even more enjoyable.

But the city during the Christmas season offers many special attractions such as Christmas markets and ice skating rinks.

The most famous Christmas Market in Florence is certainly the Heidelberg Market where a corner of Germany comes to life in Piazza Santa Croce, where you can taste typical German dishes such as pork shank and sauerkraut.

For those who want to practice a winter sport in the city center can go to the gardens of the Fortezza da Basso where the Florence Ice Village is set up, Europe’s longest ice skating rink. The Florence Ice Village counts 300 meters of ring, is open every day from 10:00 to 24:00 and is surrounded by a Christmas Village.
