CHRISTMAS MARKETS (Mercatini di Natale)
Mercatino di Natale in Piazza Duomo (November 26, 2021–January 6, 2022)
I am SO excited!
If you LOVE the holidays AND you love travel (has it been….what 5 years since we could do it???!!) – What could be better than a trip to Milan for the Christmas Market. And, if I’m being honest…a LOT of holiday eating and sipping;)
The Milan market is one of the most traditional of holiday markets. Come with me as I shop!
Mercatino di Natale in Piazza Duomo is the largest and most famous Christmas market in the city. Milan’s central square gets filled with over 60 chalet huts selling traditional Christmas gifts and crafts such as decorations, baubles for Christmas trees, nativity cribs, Befana stockings, and a vast variety of food delicacies from various regions. The festive market that is open from 9 am to 9 pm is a perfect place for a lunch-time or afternoon stroll. Milan Christmas market in Piazza Duomo displays tradition, modern culture, and taste. Many local artisans exhibit and sell their works at the fair. The Christmas market highlight on Piazza Duomo is when the traditional Milanese Christmas tree is lit up during the opening ceremony.
I’ll be posting on Instagram and Facebook. See ya there!
