It is time for Christmas. Admit it or not, crisis or no crisis, we breathe the magical air of this time, and the events related to Christmas come out as mushrooms! In Tuscany, in every town people take every opportunity to make feast, even with little. And to save money, you know, it is good to think to the gifts in advance.

Why not to get some idea by visiting the many Christmas markets where the choice and opportunities are not lacking?

For all Visitors to Tuscany and Tirreno, we thought to a small gift: a new page dedicated to Christmas Events held in our region. You'll find all the Christmas markets and all the Nativity of Tuscany in the same google map ... and since they are really lots, we have also divided the events province by province.

We hope it to be a pleasant gift!
