Here are some of the famous Christmas markets in Italy that bustle with holiday cheer:

Florence
Mercato di Natale
For all the procrastinators and last-minute types, this market begins on December 23,
Piazza Santissima Annunziata and lasts until Epiphany on January 6.

Milan
Famous antiques fair, “oh bej oh bej” - La Fiera di
Sant’Ambrogio, fills the streets from December 8
to 22.

Naples
Go to Via San Gregorio Armeno where artisans sell presepi (nativity
scenes) and figurines.

Perugia
Go to Via del Circo, in the Centro Storico (historic town center) for the Mercatino delle Strenne
(literally, Little Market of Presents) from December 4 to 24.

Rome
The famous Piazza Navona turns into a Mercato di Natalte, where you can buy toys, sweets and holiday decorations
December 8 through January 6 (Epiphany).

Buone spese!
Happy shopping!
