Piazza Santa Croce Christmas Markets Description

The Piazza Santa Croce Christmas Market is a German-inspired holiday shopping event held in front of the Santa Croce Basilica in Florence.

The Christmas Market features 55 wood cabins with merchants from 16 countries including France, Germany, Austria, and The Netherlands.

From the end of November to mid December, locals and tourists can buy stocking stuffers and gifts like crafts, clothing, and ornaments as well as regional and Northern European food like hot spiced wine, beer, and grilled sausages.

The Christmas market tradition, which originated in Northern Europe, spread to Florence in 2003. Since then, the Piazza Santa Croce Christmas Market has been one of the most popular holiday activities in the city.

You can always count on Santa Croce for themed markets, but the Christmas ones are really special! They help bring the Christmas feel into the city and help bring together all the festive and exciting lights, chestnut vendors and cold weather to create the full Christmas atmosphere. For locals the markets are exciting because the bring goods from around the world right to their doorstep, and for tourists they are great to walk around, find gifts, and just to be apart of the experience. There are some great entertainment and candy booths, and they all look so pretty filling up the piazza!
