Starting December 2nd,Weihnachtsmarkt, the beloved German Christmas market will be set up in Piazza Santa Croce, recreating a traditional Christmas village, with wooden chalets and spectacular decorations. More than 50 exhibitors will display hand-made holiday items as well as gingerbread, hot steaming wine brulé and freshly baked cinnamon strudels. The Christmas market will be open every day from 10 am until 8 pm and it will end on December 20.
