Florence is another magical European city that seems to light up when Christmas comes around. Not only can you find a number of sweets and treats you have to try during this time of year, but there are also plenty of attractions to keep you busy.
First, you'll want to check out the nativity scenes throughout the different neighborhoods. Churches, hidden corners, and restaurants are only some of the places you'll find decorated with this traditional scene. The most popular one? The scene you can find at the Duomo at mass.
Next, make sure to check out the Christmas markets that take place throughout the city. The German market, or Weihnachtsmarket, has plenty of unique gifts and offerings that will make your loved ones' Christmas a little bit brighter. Spending Christmas in Italy might not be your first choice, but you'll change your mind after you've witnessed all there is to see and do around this time of year.
