Things to do in Florence during the feast of the Immaculate are really many. Tradition certainly ask for a visit to the famous Christmas market in Piazza Santa Croce, the Weihnachtsmarkt.

This is a perfect German-style market with about 50 artisan banquets and lots of ideas for the Christmas tree decorations and the nativity scene. For the sweet tooth there is no lack of foodstuffs and typical wooden houses where you can taste typical products of the German Christmas market such as shin and gingerbread.
