Mercatini di natale


It is Christmas in the heart
 that puts Christmas in the air.  ~W.T. Ellis


The decorations are already being put up all around Parma to get us into the festive spirit.

This weekend there will be the first of many Mercatini Natale in Parma.


Opening hours: from 9:00 to 19:00
Admission: Free

There are many "Mercatini di Natale" all over Italy this month.
A website dedicated to Christmas Markets advertises well over 100 markets throughout the whole of Italy.
It is easy to use and find a Christmas Market for your next 'day trip'.

Here is a link to an article from Italy Magazine's top ten Italian Christmas Markets.
