But the most awaited events are the Christmas Markets, and the most famous one is the Weihnachtsmarkt, the German Christmas Market, that every year (this one is the 14th edition) gathers Florentines and tourists in the beautiful Piazza Santa Croce.
This year the Christmas Market will be held from December 3rd to December 21st and - as usual – will host more than 50 exhibitors from Italy and Europe, especially Austria and Germany. Glühwein, brezel, strudel, biscuits, Christmas decorations and gift ideas are just an example of the products one can find at the market, open everyday from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Entrance is free.
